Germs are everywhere and are on common things you touch every single day. Be vigilant, follow these guidelines, and stay healthy.
Germs On Your Cellphone
It goes with you everywhere, even to the bathroom. As a result, it can get up to 10 times dirtier than the toilet seat. In fact, E. coli is a bacteria that can give you diarrhea and stomach cramps. It lives for hours on a warm surface like your phone. Wash your hands with soap after you go.
Germs and your Remote Control
Everyone touches it. “They” could be picking their nose non-stop. And when it isn’t in your germy hands, it’s either on the floor or stuck between the sofa cushions, breeding grounds for mold and
bacteria. Wipe it with antibacterial wipes several times a week.
Your Dish Sponge
Surprise! It’s the dirtiest thing in your house. Sponges are wet and absorb food and dirt. Get rid of all the bacteria, mold, and yeasts, by microwaving it for 1 minute every several days. For raw meat, seafood, and poultry, clean the sponge every day.
Germs On the Toothbrush Holder
Your toothpaste kills germs. But it also sticks to the bristles and drips onto the holder. This spot has one of the highest bacteria readings of anything you touch. Clean it often. One easy way: Remove the gunk, then stick it in the dishwasher.
Anything in Your Office Coffee Room
The microwave and refrigerator doors and the faucet are all covered in bacteria. And so are the vending machine buttons. Wash your hands before and after you touch the appliances. Rinse the coffee pot between uses, and run vinegar through it once a month.
Be vigilant. Wash your hands often. Clean your appliances on a regular basis.
