Keep Separate Plungers for Kitchen and Bath

Help maintain your health by keeping a separate plunger for your kitchen sink. Plungers used in the bathroom, especially the toilet and shower/tub should never be used in the kitchen as they will transmit e coli. Bleach will kill e coli, however when you use a plunger, the water can spray small droplets over surfaces, such as counters and cabinets without you realizing it, and then they don't get cleaned. If not cleaned, they can allow bacteria to then work their way into your food when something is laid on them, or you touch those surfaces with your hands while handling food.

To avoid this cross contamination, simply use a separate plunger for the kitchen. To keep them straight, I have mine labeled, and keep it under the kitchen sink.

Smart idea. Ditto for sponges.

Judy, in college I had a roommate for a very short time who actually cleaned the toilet and kitchen sink with the same sponge. I never used that sink again...Luckily the next semester I changed to a different suite.
