Put a bottle of inexpensive (read, cheap) White Vinegar in a spray bottle. Put a bottle of inexpensive (yep) peroxide in another spray bottle. After meals and clean-up have been done, spray a light mist of the vinegar over all surfaces, including your sink, and wipe off. Then spray a light mist of peroxide over everything and wipe that off. The acid in the vinegar kills billions of bacteria and germs, the peroxide kills millions of bacteria & germs and removes slight odor of vinegar.
You now have a sink that would pass a Food Service inspection.
Don't forget the faucet and faucet handles!
Store bottles under the sink where it is dark. Constant exposure to light breaks down the peroxide into plain water.

When I redid the kitchen my cutting board (fairly small, glass or pyrex) didn't look good with my new counters, so I put it in the dish washer and intended to give it away and get a new one. It takes up little room so I ended up just keeping it there. That way gets sanitized everytime I do the dishes and lets the counters look less cluttered.
No extra calories in this quick idea using ingredients already in your meal. When you've finished cooking potatoes with your roast beef, pork tenderloin, chicken or turkey, remove all of the vegetables from the drippings. Return some potatoes to the drippings & whizz them up with a hand blender. The consistency becomes just like gravy & doesn't add unnecessary flour/cornstarch etc calories. Just plain good food that you were already going to eat!
If you don't have a hand blender, a regular counter top blender will do just fine.
