If you’ve been avoiding giving your home a thorough once-over after entertaining during the holidays, you’re not alone. For many of us, the thought of steaming our carpets or cleaning out the refrigerator makes us want to crawl under the covers.
May your home is harboring more bacteria than a public trash can. But it’s not just your toilet seat that’s riddled with germs; experts suggest computer keyboards and microwaves are also likely culprits.
For years, the conventional wisdom was that cooking food in a microwave oven was a great way to kill bacteria (and made it safe to eat). Although, new research suggests that microwaving food doesn’t kill bacteria. That said, keeping your microwave splash-free is crucial.
Surprisingly, fresh findings suggest your bed linen isn’t as dirty as you might think. “We’ve done research that showed that you don’t get as much exposure to dust mites [when] in bed as we once thought,” Euan Tovey, head of the Allergen and Upper Airways Group at the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research told Ninemsn. He says you’re subjected to dust mites whenever you’re moving, not when you’re lying in bed.
The toilet has a reputation for being one of the dirtiest areas of a bathroom, but according to new research, it’s got nothing on your bathtub. Elizabeth Scott, Ph.D., co-director of the Center for Hygiene and Health in Home and Community at Simmons College in Boston, compared the bacteria she found in tubs to trash cans.
You might regularly wash your linens, but what about your mattress? Carolyn Forte of the Good Housekeeping Institute says mattress pads need to be washed every two months and that you get bonus points for cleaning your mattress while the protector is in the wash.
We hate to break it to you, but vacuuming doesn’t count as carpet cleaning. If you don’t regularly steam your floors, research suggests that it could be harming your health. “Indoor air quality can be eight to 10 times worse than outdoor air quality if you don’t clean your flooring, clean your drapes, and let air inside regularly.
As you see, you need take care about home and every space where you and your family are living.
