The microwave also serves to disinfect
In addition to serving to flavor vinegar, to dry aromatic herbs, to make a sole with leeks, to make stuffed mussels, among a host of other recipes, Professor of Environmental Engineering Gabriel Bitton, from the University of Florida, tells us that The microwave is ideal for sterilizing the sponges that we use to scrub kitchen utensils.
The stage published in the Journal of Environmental Health states that in just two minutes at maximum power, 99% of bacteria, viruses or parasites are killed and spores in ten minutes. To reach this conclusion, the group of scientists soaked sponges and brushes in water full of fecal bacteria, viruses, protozoan parasites and spores, and in just four minutes, thanks to the activity of the microwave, they completely eliminated the bacteria except as mentioned, the spores that need ten minutes.
Well, you know, after cleaning the sponge, disinfect it in the microwave that you can also keep it dry. Have you tried it yet?
UPDATE: They report on the disastrous risks of putting this disinfection technique into practice because they didn't wet the sponges.
