Kitchen Tips Tuesday: Rinsing Food in the Sink

The kitchen sink is one of the germiest places in the home. It’s where we rinse our food, place our dirty dishes, and often wash our hands. It’s teeming with bacteria, and although we clean it, it’s not often fully sanitized. We always use a strainer when washing vegetables, but sometimes they don’t really fit.
This kitchen hack allows you to lay out long vegetables that aren’t so colander friendly, and give them a good rinsing without having them touch the bottom of the sink:

Place a metal cooling rack in the sink, place the vegetables on top and use the spray nozzle on the sink to wash away debris. The best part? The dirt and rinse water goes right down the drain, rather than gathering at the bottom of the strainer.
