/What is the difference between cleaning and sanitizing?

Cleaning is the removal of food, soil, and other types of debris from a surface. By itself, cleaning does not consistently reduce contamination to safe levels. Therefore, food-contact surfaces should be sanitized after being cleaned. Sanitizing reduces the number of illness-causing germs to acceptable levels. Cleaning and sanitizing should be done as often as necessary to prevent the cross-contamination of food.
