When remodeling your kitchen, the sink is something you will spend a bit of time choosing the right one. Double bowl kitchen sinks work the best since you have the option to keep clean dishes on one side and dirty on the other side. A standard double bowl sink has two bowls exactly the same size, each placed side by side. When using this type of sink, store dishes in the side without the garbage disposal, if the sink has one. When the time comes to wash the dishes, scrape food into the side with the garbage disposal, stack the dishes on the counter and fill the other side with soap and water. Now you can soak and wash the dishes in the side with the water, and rinse them in the other side when finished.
When prepare food in a standard double bowl sink, always use one side for rinsing vegetables, fruit and meats. This way you can clean and disinfect this one area when finished, and germs from meat don’t spread around the whole sink. The other side is ideal for peeling potatoes, carrots and turnips. This setup allows food preparation space for all parts of the meal. The meat and vegetables do not mix inside of the sink, so there is no fear of meat germs spreading onto raw vegetables used in a salad.
