What is the best way to disinfect/sterilise long time left in water dirty cutlery?
It is disgusting yes, but I need to clean stainless steel cutlery that has been left dirty in a sink covered in water for weeks on end. I expect there to be lots of bacteria present now and need to know how best to clean the cutlery to prevent potential illnesses.
And would it be better to just throw them away and purchase new? Even if this is the case, how best should they be cleaned? Thank you very much.
Run them through the dish washer. Mine would sterilize crap if I put it in. If you don’t have one, bleach & water should help. Bleach kills the germs and bacteria.
