New You Beauty Tip: Stay beautifully healthy by ensuring your utensils are as clean as your hands.

A recent study tested the transfer of norovirus, the greatest source foodborne disease, and hepatitis A, between fruits and veggies and utensils. The results showed that a contaminated knife will dirty an otherwise clean piece of produce and vice versa. Additionally, a soiled utensil can go on to contaminate up to seven more pieces of produce according the journal of Food and Environmental Virology.

So while prepping your next delicious meal make sure to wash your produce and to rinse your utensils in between veggies!
