None of us likes to change a habit. But once it is changed you are back to an automatic way of doing something. By selecting wise habits your improved lifestyle pays you back for the rest of your life.
No doubt, the last thing you do before leaving the kitchen is squeeze it dry with your hands. Now all the pathogens are on your hands!
Where do your fingers go? To your mouth to remove a hull or bit of something from your teeth. Or to eat a last bite of something. Or to turn a page of the telephone directory. You have just eaten a culture sampling from your own kitchen sponge. In two hours they are already multiplying in the greatest culture system of all: your body! You have given yourself your next sore throat, or cold or headache. The worst possible habit is to wipe a child's face and hands with the kitchen cloth. Or to have a handy towel hanging from the refrigerator handle.
To sterilize the sponge: drop it into a 50% solution of grain alcohol at the end of each day. Keep a wide mouth glass quart jar handy just for this. Keep the jar tightly closed and out of the reach of children. Dunk your sponge and plop it onto the sink. If you stand it on end in the sink it will partly dry overnight.
Another way to sterilize the sponge or cloth is to microwave it, after wetting it, for 3 minutes. Any shorter time simply warms and cultures the pathogens and multiplies them. Or boil the cloth like our grandparents did. Drying out the dish cloth helps kill many-but not all-pathogens. It takes three days of drying to kill all! Another strategy is to use a fresh cloth or sponge each day, putting the used one to dry until laundry day.
During the day, set the sponge on end to start drying and slow down culturing.
Don't eat food directly off the counter top or table top. You wouldn't slice a tomato or egg directly on the counter top. It would pick up something: some little particle of dust or dirt. Treat bread the same way. Always on a new clean surface, such as a plate. The counter and table top have on them whatever is in the kitchen dust and on the wipe cloth. Dust is always falling! And the sponge is always culturing. Don't eat the dust!
Keep the cutting board sterile like dishes. Wash it the same way and keep it in the cupboard.
Keep food containers closed. Milk or water glasses are picking up dust as soon as you set them out. Dust is everywhere. Every step on the carpet sends up a puff of dust. Vacuuming sends up a hurricane of dust and distributes bathroom dust to the kitchen and kitchen dust to the bedrooms. So if one person has brought in a new infection, the whole family is exposed to it in hours via the dust.
It is very helpful not to eat the new infectious pathogen. Breathing it is not so damaging. Our noses collect such pathogens and we blow them out again. Touching the infected person is not very damaging either; the pathogens can't get through our skins and since we wash hands before eating we are not at great risk of infection this way. But eating the pathogen is 100% effective in infecting us. The new pathogen is in the dust. The newly contaminated dust drops into your ready and waiting glasses on the table and the open foods. Of course, there is no defence if somebody should cough or sneeze at the table.
Teach children to cough and sneeze into a suitable collecting place like a tissue, not their hands. Pathogens live bountifully on hands. Hands not only provide moisture but often food from the last meal. Hands are second only to the dish cloth in contamination level. If you must cough or sneeze and a tissue is not within reach fast enough, use your clothing! That's what clothing is for-to protect you. Cough and sneeze into your own clothing; this protects the cougher and sneezer, as well as everybody else. A sleeve is handy for children. The inside of your T-shirt for T-shirt wearers. The inside of coat for suited persons. The inside of the neck line for dresses. Of course, paper is best, but in emergency use cloth. Never, never your hands unless you are free to immediately dash into the washroom and clean the contamination off your hands.
Teach children this old rearranged verse: If you cough or sneeze or sniff Grab a tissue, quick-quick-quick! And if you're sitting at the table Do it in your sleeve if able.

Notice to the Reader from Dr Hulda Clark
The opinions and conclusions expressed in this book are mine, and unless expressed otherwise, mine alone. The opinions expressed herein are based on my scientific research and on specific case studies involving my patients. Be advised that every person is unique and may respond differently to the treatments described in this book. On occasion we have provided dosage recommendations where appropriate. Again, remember that we are all different and any new treatment should be applied in a cautious, common sense fashion.
The treatments outlined herein are not intended to be a replacement or substitute for other forms of conventional medical treatment. Please feel free to consult with your physician or other health care provider.
I have indicated throughout this book the existence of pollutants in food and other products. These pollutants were identified using a testing device of my invention known as the Syncrometer. Complete instructions for building and using this device are contained in this book. Therefore anyone can repeat the tests described and verify the data.
The Syncrometer is more accurate and versatile than the best existing testing methods. A method for determining the degree of precision is also presented. However at this point it only yields positive or negative results, it does not quantify. The chance of a false positive or a false negative is about 5%, which can be lessened by test repetition.
It is in the public interest to know when a single bottle of a single product tests positive to a serious pollutant. If one does, the safest course is to avoid all bottles of that product entirely, which is what I repeatedly advise. These recommendations should be interpreted as an intent to warn and protect the public, not to provide a statistically significant analysis. It is my fervent hope that manufacturers use the new electronic techniques in this book to make surer products than they ever have before.
