Barbecue season is well underway, but like the British weather, poor barbecue hygiene could put a dampener on proceedings.
Around half of UK barbecue hosts admit that they are far from meticulous when it comes to separating tongs and other utensils, with 51 per cent of people using the same tongs for handling raw and cooked meat.
Unsurprisingly, this means that cases of food poisoning double over the summer months, according to the NHS. The harmful bacteria, Campylobacter, also known as the Barbecue Bug, causes over 100 deaths a year.
Furthermore, hands can carry over 10 million bacteria and so it is imperative to scrub your hands before biting into that barbecued burger.
Aquaint is the perfect hygiene essential for any barbecue or outdoor meal. It can be used on the hands, food, utensils, tongs, and chopping boards, to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. This is particularly important as people can forget that dangerous germs are transferred between uncooked meats to hands, vegetables and cutlery.
With just a simple spritz from a handy 50ml bottle, any trace of dirt or bacteria will be eradicated from hands and no towel is needed, as it doesn’t leave a residue. It’s kind to even the most sensitive skin from birth.
What’s more, Aquaint has passed official UK Drinking Water tests, so it can be sprayed directly onto uncooked meats, salad items, vegetables and fruits where the skin is eaten.
Next time you host a barbeque, make sure you have your bottle of Aquaint at the ready and your al fresco feast will go without a hitch!
