10 Things You Should Clean More Often

You use them on a daily basis and you should clean them just as often, but you don’t. Here is the list of the 10 things you should clean as often as you use them.

  1. Kitchen towels. Used daily for wiping hands, cleaning kitchen surfaces and the table, how often do kitchen towels get washed though? Specialists say they should be washed each time you use them, with warm water and soap. Every other 3 days is recommended to be machine washed at the highest temperature to kill all germs and bacteria.
  2. Makeup brushes. If you are not in the habit of cleaning your makeup brushes often, or in some cases, never, be warned of the fact that they may cause very serious harm to your skin through the bacteria they gather. Wash them at least once a week with a special solution.
  3. They are a great source of bacteria thanks to transpiration and different body creams and oils. These germs cause rashes and infections. Specialists advise us to wash them once per week as well.
  4. The car wheel. The car wheel is often dirtier than the WC, yes, you heard that right. Always keep a pack of antibacterial wipes handy and try to clean the parts of your car that are most often touched as often as possible.
  5. The broom. It may sound weird cleaning the things that you use for cleaning, but it all makes sense once you think about all the dirt you clean with them. Replace the brooms and even sponges as often as possible.
  6. Light switches. What is the first thing you touch going in the bathroom, and what is the last one? Right, it’s the light switch. They are among the most contaminated things in your house so make time to disinfect them at least once a week.
  7. TV remote. Similar to the light switches, your TV remote gets in the hands of all your family members and it is no wonder they have more germs than any hospital object. Keep them clean to keep your family healthy.
  8. The WC brush. Avoid spreading germs and clean all the parts of your WC brush.
  9. Tooth brush. According to studies, tooth brushes are all contaminated with E-coli and staph germs. Change them at least every two months and keep them away from your toilet.
  10. Your own hands. Hands carry germs from one location to another. Wash them as often as possible, upon entering the house, before cooking, after putting on make-up and before going to bed. They can never be too clean.
