Fuller Brush Special Items & Hints
Produce, Food Safety & Refrigerators

One of the most important things you can do for your family's health and safety, and one of your major expenses, is food purchase and storage.   Fuller offers several products to save you money and conserve the quality of your food, especially produce.  There's some helpful hints and guidelines as well.

Hint:  Don't scrub veggies before storage, it will remove the natural protective coating and open up the skin to bacteria.  Soft fruits can benefit greatly, however, by spraying with diluted vinegar, let sit for a moment, then rinsing under running cold water.  Drain very well and store in a breathable container (not sealed in plastic, for instance - living plants need to breathe).

Greens will benefit by being gently rinsed in cold water.  Shake slightly to remove excess water, and wrap in a kitchen terrycloth towel for storage in the warmest part of your refrigerator.  Each time you use some of the greens, examine and remove any parts that are deteriorating, rinse again and re-wrap.

Store raw meats, poultry or fish separately from other foods.  Make sure that any fluid that drains is caught in a bowl or other container, and does not contaminate the refrigerator.   Store in the coldest part of the refrigerator, and use within a day or two.

Protect your family's health!  After preparing meat, poultry, raw fish or eggs, immediately remove the cutting board, bowls, knives and any other utensils and disinfect the counters with Spray 'n San II.   Wash hands well.  Do not prepare any other food until you are sure there will be no cross contamination.

Industrial Germicidal Cleaner
Item # 99250

Kills e-coli, staph, salmonella, pseudomonas. Highly effective in controlling mold and mildew. Easy to use...just spray and wipe, no scrubbing necessary. Deodorizes with a fresh, clean lemon scent.

Keep your refrigerator clean and sanitary.  Except for greens or other items that need to breathe and produce in the produce drawers, place other foods in sealed containers.   Check every two or three days, wipe up spills promptly, and discard older leftovers or foods past their prime. 

Once a week, reorganize the refrigerator.  This is a good time to make soup with veggies and other foods that are still wholesome but won't be soon.  (See Dump Soup.)  Empty each shelf and clean well, then wipe with a damp cloth.

Every few months, depending on the amount of dust, animal hair and lint in your home, use a refrigerator coil brush to clean refrigerator and freezer cooling coils.  This can not only cut your electric bill, but helps your refrigerator maintain a safe temperature of 40 F.  I find that the Clothes Dryer Vent Brush works fine too.   A shop vac will dispose of the dust, hair and lint that you remove.
