Milady Sanitation Exam Review

Just because you can’t see them with the naked eye doesn’t mean that bacteria do not exist. In fact, not being able to see the presence of bacteria, be they harmful or otherwise, makes it far more important to have a healthy foundation of knowledge when it comes to general sanitation. Washing your hands and proper food storage is a good start, but how much else do you know about sanitation?
