Doing this every time, I have discovered that, the sock I wore serves as a magnet for clouds of dust and hair. Walking around the house with my socks on keeps my floor clean and smooth.

While you do the slicing, you can easily toss it in the plastic bag. Including the food scraps. In this way, your kitchen counter is still clean, and it will be easier just wipe it with a dry cloth.
