WARNING: The following information is not recommended for people with weak hearts. What you are about to read can create an instant urge to run to the sink and clean your hands in anxiety.
- The Toilet: Did you know that flushing the toilet can contaminate the bathroom in a radius of more than 5 meters which means everything in this radius including your bath sponge, your toothbrush and yourself, too, will be in the center of a mini germ explosion. If you don't want to get infected that easily, Cleaners recommend that you replace your toothbrush and even your sponge with a new one each month.
- The Kitchen: What may seem incredible to you, but is the truth itself, is our next gross fact. Can you imagine how much germs does a kitchen contain? Well, I am pretty sure you are nowhere near a logical answer. Specialist commercial cleaners in Melbourne state that a kitchen usually has 100 000 times more germs than a bathroom. Isn't that incredible and somewhat shocking?
- Faucets: Another shocker around the kitchen is that nearly 52% of the kitchen faucets are contaminated with the bacteria E-coli. These microscopic creatures are extremely harmful for children and people with weak immune system. Make sure to wipe your utensils and appliances with antibacterial wipes when preparing to eat.
- Bathroom Drains and Faucets: In comparison with the kitchen, bathroom faucets and drains have at least 100 times more germs than a toilet seat and are much more dirty than a trash can. That's why specialists cleaners suggest that you disinfect your bathroom at least two times a month.
- The Remote Control: One of the top places for transmitting infections is, in fact, the remote control. Bacteria can live on it longer than 3 days and feed with the grime between the buttons. Expert cleaners say the best way to avoid infecting yourself from the remote control is to clean it wit antibacterial spray or wipes at least 2 times a week.
- The Phone: Of course, phones are one of the most common places where grime strive and develop. It is extremely easy to contaminate yourself from your cellphone. You touch it with your hands, you face and sometimes, even your mouth when talking closely to the microphone in your attempt to speak louder.
