The cutlery is an essential, attractive and essential in any establishment for the public and you need to know how to take care of them for proper use and optimal hygiene.
Here are some tips to keep your cutlery impeccable and surprise your customers.
How to make good maintenance of the cutlery?
First, always remove the remains of food or drink as soon as possible.
If we have covered with remains of already dried food and embedded dirt, you put them to soak with hot water for half an hour before introducing them in the dishwasher.
Next, wash them in the dishwasher. You should use a neutral detergent that is not too abrasive to protect the cutlery from rust. Remember to clean the remains of food remaining in the tank, and also checks that the dishwasher has sufficient product (soap, rinse aid …) for the result to be optimal.
A trick: Rinse with cold water so there are no traces of detergent.
Once the cutlery is clean, you can pass them through the cutlery polisher machine, which will do the task of drying and polishing, giving them the last touch of brightness to make them look like new.
If you do not have the cutlery polisher, let them soak in warm water and a stream of vinegar. Then, they are dried one by one with paper, rubbing them until there is no watermark left.
To store them, try not to store them in damp places to avoid the proliferation of bacteria. In addition, you must store them in groups (forks with forks, spoons with spoons …) in such a way that they do not rub against each other, and place them with separators. You can also use independent boxes, especially when dealing with large quantities.
