We all want to keep our house Gem-free. Germs are everywhere. It’s inevitable that we come in contact with them on a daily basis. Out at the store, at work, and of course…..even in our own home!
Here’s the part that’s an eye-opener: Your own toilet seat may be cleaner than some other items or areas in your home. That’s right – would you ever think your toilet seat may be one of the cleaner things around the house?
Well, as it turns out, it’s not too hard to believe. We have weekly cleaning rituals where we go in and clean the bathroom and scrub the toilet really well. And of course, that’s great. But what about some other areas or items in the home? There are certain things that we touch on a daily basis. In fact, the whole family touches on a daily basis and they pile up with more and more germs.
These are the items we need to be concerned about as we touch them and eat a snack or wipe our face…..germs are flying everywhere! We were so good at using hand sanitizer and washing up quite often during the Covid 19 pandemic, but sometimes keeping up with that falls by the wayside now.
It’s not that we don’t care about germs, it’s just that life gets hectic and sometimes you’re right in the middle of something, not realizing that you just used a germ-infested item for the last half hour and now you’re going to make yourself something to eat!
Courtney Mason, General Manager and VP of The Spruce recently gave some tips on keeping more things clean. And also divulged what could be dirtier than your actual toilet! Let’s take a look at some of her tips and hopefully do a better job at keeping things clean and preventing germs from traveling everywhere. Especially as we get close to cold and flu season.
