It's vital to include home sanitizing essentials, including sanitizing appliances designed to eliminate harmful germs, bacteria, allergens, and viruses.

NSF Certified appliances (clothes washers, dryers, and dishwashers) undergo rigorous testing to ensure that the appliances eliminate potentially harmful allergens, microorganisms, and bacteria. NSF Certified washers must reach 131º F, and dishwashers the rinse temperature must reach 150º F. Since all NSF Certified appliances are held to the same high standards, there are many styles and brands to choose from in every price range.

In addition to sanitizing appliances, make sure to account for all of the elements for clean-up. A well-sized sink makes meal prep and clean-up more convenient. It would be best to consider an efficient clean-up zone, including your cleaning supplies, dishwasher, composter, recycling, and waste bins.
