The Dirtiest Things You Touch Every Day
Sure, you're all clean and spiffy, but what about your bathtub? The bathtub is home to many toxic bacterias that is often left unnoticed. That is, until someone in the family catches a staph infection, urinary tract infection, pneumonia, septicemia, or some form of a skin condition. Believe it or not, bacteria left lingering near the drain of a bathtub is worse than bacteria found in the toilet. By cleaning the bathtub with bathroom cleaner just once a week, you can minimize these unwanted germs (and illnesses) from you and your loved ones. Go on, give it a good rub-a-dub-dub.
2. Kitchen Sink
Contrary to popular opinion, the kitchen may actually be the dirtiest place in the house. Of course, that’s not including your dirty little brother Jimmy’s bedroom but that’s another story. Anyway, there’s typically 500,000 bacteria per square inch in the kitchen sink drain alone, so you can only imagine the total gunk with faucet handles and all. To solve the problem from the inside out, try pouring 1/2 cup baking soda and 1/2 cup of vinegar down the drain. Finally, rinse with hot water,and you just might hear your sink burp a clean gurgle of delight.
3. Kitchen Sponge
“NO! I TRUSTED YOU!!!”
Now it just seems like I’m messing with your head. But I’m not. It’s true. The very sponge that takes the grit off of your dishes and bathroom sink, is really the dirtiest of them all. The yellow and green icon of the kitchen is really a cozy home for germs. Its moist, micro-crevices make it harder to disinfect, so instead of wiping surfaces clean with a sponge, users are really just transferring bacteria from one place to another. An easy remedy is to microwave the sponge for 60 seconds–it improves the odor too!
4. Dirty Used Underwear
I don’t need to say much about underwear *dirty ones*. After putting on a boxer short for two days, you should expect it to carry dirt and germs, same goes to the women with panties. I would have made it number one on this list but here you have it. It is expected of you to wash your hands with clean water after handling your dirty underwear.And at the same time don’t wear the same underwear for more than two days for men while that of the women shouldn’t exceed one day!
