The 6 Dirtiest Places in Your Home

Tabla de contenidos

Did you know that bacteria can live on the oven handle for two days?

Some weeks are busier than most, and there isn’t always enough time to give the house the cleaning it deserves. Save your energy, and focus on these six places that commonly attract dirt and bacteria.

The Kitchen Sink

What’s left of dinner always ends up in the kitchen sink. You can remove most bacteria by scrubbing the surface with baking soda, then following up with an apple cider vinegar soak. Simply add a few tablespoons of vinegar to warm water to sanitize the sink.

The Refrigerator

You might not ever think of it, but the refrigerator handle might be one of the dirtiest places in the house. The entire family uses it, and hands aren’t always clean. Wipe away germs and bacteria with a non-chemical cleaner.

The Remote Control

Everyone, from your kid’s friends to your in-laws touches the remote control. Use rubbing alcohol to clean germs without damaging the buttons. You can use disinfecting wipes too!

The Kitchen Sponge

If you can’t replace your dirty, smelly sponge, run it through the dishwasher with dishes to remove bacteria. You can also remove germs by placing it in the microwave for a minute and a half!

The Home Office

If you work from home, chances are your keyboard is full of germs and bacteria. Unplug the keyboard, and gently wipe it with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and water. Make sure that you don’t get the keyboard too wet as it could cause damage.

Bathroom Mat

The bathroom mat needs to be washed at least once every two weeks. Simply place it in the washing machine with a load of towels to remove any dirt and bacteria.
