11 Germiest Places in Your Home

If someone asked you what the dirtiest thing in your house was, you’d say your toilet, right? Wrong. It seems like that’s the obvious choice, but take a look at this list for all the things in your house that should be cleaned more often.

Research has shown phones have ten times more bacteria than a toilet seat! Time to start cleaning that screen, wipe it down with Nurturals Kit & Kaboodle all purpose cleaner.

2.KITCHEN SPONGE

Sanitize it once or twice a week to keep those germs at bay. Nurturals Piece of Cake non-toxic kitchen cleaner will make grease, grime, soap scum and bacteria vanish.

Collecting all the liquid from after you brush your teeth, the toothbrush holder is actually the third most germ covered place in the home! Clean it once a week with Nurturals Kit & Kaboodle all purpose cleaner to keep the bacteria to a minimum.

6.CUTTING BOARDS

9.WASHING MACHINE

Yes it cleans everything IN IT, but then some of that stays in the drum and transfers to your next load of laundry! Add a few pumps of Nurtural Concentrate to the washing machine and run a cycle to give the washing machine a good clean.

10.COFFEE MACHINE

It’s something you use everyday, and you probably clean the pot but what about the basket where the coffee brews? It's a prime dark and damp location for bacteria to thrive. To clean your coffee machine mix equal parts vinegar and water, then brew. After it's finished, brew again with just clean water to rinse remaining vinegar mixture away.

11.FAUCET HANDLES

You touch these to wash your hands with dirty hands and then touch them again once your hands are clean. Kitchen and bathroom faucet handles contain the sixth highest amounts of bacteria in your home.
