Oftentimes, we don’t think about how messy certain areas and objects in our homes can get. We tend to go through our normal cleaning routine, but many of us miss the same problematic areas and end up with battery-infested, disgusting areas. This can become a health hazard if it isn’t well-considered.
We’re going to list the top five dirtiest areas of your house so you can be mindful the next time you or a professional cleaning crew are cleaning your home.
#1: The Kitchen
This is pretty gross. We eat the food that comes from our kitchen, and when we do this, we eat food that’s coming from the dirtiest place in the house. In most cases, kitchens are much dirtier than bathrooms, believe it or not.
Things like dish towels and sponges are an especially bad haven for bacteria, as they become moist and grow molds and bacteria easily.
In addition, we rarely think about things like faucets, cabinet and drawer handles, refrigerator and microwave doors, and other commonly touched parts of the room.
Think about this next time you’re preparing a meal, and consider getting a good cleaning job done!
#2: Switches, door handles, door knobs
It seems obvious when you think about it, but when’s the last time you went through the house wiping down these commonly touched areas? Particularly bad are knobs in bathrooms and from the indoors to the outdoors.
A disinfecting wipe down once a week should do the trick to take care of this problem.
#3 Make-up bag and brushes
Did you know makeup grows bacteria after some time? We often reuse the same makeup brushes over and over again and never give them a good wipe down. This is pretty gross, seeing as we’re rubbing these brushes over our face every day.
Buy a nice make-up brush cleaner and take care of this problem in a breeze! It doesn’t take long, and it’s much better for your health, and your skin!
