one Kitchen cabinets

Mold in them comes most often from the walls. But another reason for the development of the fungus can be steam from a multicooker or kettle. Rising, it creates additional moisture, which is the root cause of the fungus. In addition, mold often occurs in the closet where the dish dryer is located. Wash the tray thoroughly.

2 Countertop around sinks and drains

The junction of the sink to the countertop is an area where dampness often forms. And she, as you know, is fertile ground for the development of mold. But it’s not just the countertop around the sink that’s important to dry regularly. Pay attention to draining, food waste and constant moisture can also contribute to the appearance of fungus.


3 Stands for knives

A wooden stand can also become a victim of mold. But the thing is that it is almost impossible to clean it out of there. Do not put wet knives in a wooden stand to keep it for a long time. Or replace it with a metal one.

four Microwave

The fungus appears here primarily due to careless cleaning. Thoroughly clean out any food that has accidentally spilled or spilled inside. Also try to dry the microwave so that the condensation disappears. It is unlikely that it will be possible to clean it from mold, and it is impossible to heat up food in a technique affected by a fungus.

5 Apron

Moisture and grease residues are ideal breeding grounds for bacteria and fungus, which most often infect the seams between tiles. The ideal scenario is when the apron is washed after every meal. Not many people do this, but in vain, because grease and dirt eat into the surface, and then it is more difficult to clean them.

6 Fridge

Most often, mold can be found on refrigerator seals. But it can also appear in the chamber itself. Where vegetables are stored tends to be less cold, and food often spoils faster than it can be thrown away.

The vegetable drawer needs to be washed once or twice a week to avoid mold growth.


7 Space under the fridge

You ask why mold does not form in other areas (under furniture, under the kitchen table) in this case? It’s all about the condensate that can flow down. Moisture, plus old dirt on the floor together contribute to the formation of fungus.

eight Dishwasher

Another universal assistant that can ruin everything with careless care. Inside the dishwasher, namely on its rubber elements, mold often forms. And this happens even if you regularly clean the device with the help of special tools.

What to do in this case? It is necessary to dry the inner chamber, and to do this, open the door slightly after the dishwashing cycle.


9 Food storage areas

Well, if the mold penetrates the refrigerator, where vegetables and fruits are stored at a low temperature, then it costs nothing for the fungus to penetrate into the compartments of kitchen drawers. Those places where potatoes, onions, garlic, other vegetables and fruits or cereals are stored should be checked regularly and sorted out twice as often and spoiled products should be removed. At room temperature, mold can spread instantly.
