Kitchen Ready Hubb

Tip#1 Make sure your sink is draining properly and that your faucet is working efficiently. Your kitchen sink is key to food preparation, cleaning and washing.  A proper working kitchen sink is a must!

Tip#2 Plenty of counter space. Clear all the appliances that don’t need to be displayed. Clutter makes it challenging especially for others to come into your kitchen and start preparing food and such. If your counter space is limited consider adding shelving for items or even investing in a portable island if you have the space.

Tip#3 How is your refrigerator running? Better catch it (hee hee). Make sure that your temperatures are set accordingly and that you have plenty of room to store foods that need to marinate or be cooled before eating! Also if you have an automatic ice maker, make sure that it is set and that you will have plenty of cold ice for thirsty guests.

Tip#4 Keep counters sanitized! With summer time temperatures on the rise, it could make counters a breeding ground for bacteria. Keep counters clean and wiped down after food preparation, especially when handling raw meats. If you bring food outside to be grilled make sure you use a different plate to place the cooked meats on! Toss dirty sponges in the dishwasher to kill germs.

Tip#5 Keep your kitchen well stocked with items that help with entertaining.  Think about left overs that may go home with grateful guests. It is good to have recyclable eating and drinking ware available, zip lock bags, plastic wrap, foil, napkins, paper towels, trash bags, soap, sanitizing cleaners, etc….

We hope these tips will help you in preparation for your Summer Time Entertainment! As always we at Hubb Plumbing are here for all of your plumbing needs!
