Things from the kitchen that are worth putting in the window. The power of the sun will help with cleaning and removing bacteria

Now you may be thinking that sun and cleaning things don’t go together very well. But we’re going to prove to you in this article that it doesn’t. The sun is a great helper not only in drying laundry, but also in cleaning all sorts of things, despite the fact that many cleaning products do the job really well. In fact, the sun’s rays can help with the cleaning process. Simply placing items in the sun for a few hours after washing and drying them will make them even cleaner. Don’t believe me? This article will convince you!


Wooden cutting board

Who wouldn’t have one at home. It is used daily for bread, fruits, vegetables and much more. Some people claim that if you leave it in the sun after washing it, the sun will disinfect it. However, this has not yet been conclusively proven. Either way, one thing is for sure, and that is that the cutting board dries faster in the sun, which prevents bacteria from forming. The wood will dry beautifully and you won’t have to worry about any mould.

Waste Bin

It’s also very useful to not only remember to empty the bin from time to time, but also to give it a good wash. Therefore, take your trash can to the shower and rinse it with warm water and detergent. Then wipe the inside with a disinfectant cleaner and let it dry in the sun.


Refrigerator drawers

Have you noticed lately that the drawers in your refrigerator aren’t as clean as they used to be? Do you see dust, crumbs, food debris and the beginnings of mold in them? And on top of that, a foul smell that you can’t even identify properly? Don’t wait any longer and start cleaning. All you need is:

  • Dishwashing liquid
  • A clean cloth and some water
  • Sunlight

Shopping bag

So do you use the greener way of a canvas bag instead of the plastic one? Then you might be wondering how to wash and dry it. That you don’t normally do that? Then just think about it a little: you put the bag down on the supermarket floor, in the car and then on the kitchen counter. You’re running out of it? Cleaning your shopping bag regularly is absolutely essential and hygienic. Wash the bag on a basic programme and then leave it to dry in the sun. After all, if you use plastic bags more often than not, you don’t have to throw them away right away either. Simply wipe the plastic bags with a cloth and lay them out in the sun. Once dry, they will be ready for use again.
