If you want a clean and healthy home, you may need to think about what you are NOT cleaning. These common household items are often missed during regular cleaning.
We all know that germs live in the toilet, but you will find that 80% more germs are on the accessory items in the bathroom that rarely get cleaned.
The same goes for kitchen and living areas. Any surface or item that is touched or handled can hold germs, viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants.
The good news is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to reduce the sanitation hazards in your home. All you have to do is think about the things you touch and use everyday as a guide for what to clean.
Use a natural disinfectant to clean all the surfaces that are handled frequently, and that are transfer points (such as the toilet paper roll holder). A quick wipe down is all that is needed to reduce common viruses to mold. Once you get into the habit, you will find that including these items doesn’t add much time to your cleaning schedule.
