Is visual motivation for cleaning surfaces in the kitchen consistent with a hygienically clean environment?, a SafeConsume publication, talks about domestic cleaning, reducing risks and how to detect soil/dirt on food preparation surfaces that might look clean. Cleaning surfaces in the kitchen may look clean, with no trace of visible dirt/soil, but we should know that microbial pathogens are invisible to the human eye, so they can be present on surfaces where we do not see them.

The paper is published in Food Control, the official scientific journal of the European Federation of Food Science and Technology (EFFoST) and the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST), an international journal that provides essential information for those involved in food safety and process control and has an impact factor of 4.248.
