Restaurant Disposable Cleaning Cloths




To prevent food poisoning, use restaurant disposable cleaning cloths. Besides the cost savings, they offer a hygienic way to dispose of germs. Whereas reusable cloths hold on to, and spread, harmful bacteria. As such, restaurants should banish their dirty dish cloths and use disposable wipes. Also, staff may not disinfect reusable cloths, hence germs spread increases. In fact, this risk increases when cleaning down tables or kitchen surfaces. For example, wiping down areas where raw meat and poultry have been prepared. Firstly, the cloths collect potentially dangerous bacteria. Next, the bacteria spreads to the hands of staff, surface areas and equipment. Also, bacteria collects in reusable cloths which can cause food poisoning. Hence, better to switch to disposable wipes to reduce these risk.


Because reusable cloths collect germs, disinfect them regularly. For example, disinfect cloths in bleach. But, ensure that no food remains in the cloths as bacteria will grow. Furthermore, wet dish cloths breed bacteria, so keep them dry. And replace them regularly. Also, colour code your reusable cleaning cloths. Why? Because colour coding allocates a cloth to a particular area or tasks. As such, this helps prevent cloth been used in the wrong area. Obviously, if this happens, it spreads germs and bacteria. So, allocate green cloths to kitchen areas, and blue cloths to front of house tasks. For instance, MAXI WIPES come in green, red, blue and yellow for this hygiene standard. And, to maintain a clean kitchen, use separate cloths with cooked food and raw food. Hence, applying these tips will help maintain a healthy and hygienic environment.


Despite the need to colour code cloths, it matters less if they are single use. In fact, once thrown away, the bacteria on the cloth also gets thrown away!

The cost of disposable wipes compares favorably to reusable cloths. Particularly if you factor in costs of laundering. And, disposable wipes represent the safer hygienic option. However, a mix of reusable cloths and disposable wipes also works. Provided that the disposable wipes get used in the higher germ risk areas.
