Bacteria is everywhere—and most people talk about it in terms of making sure your bathroom is kept germ free (if that’s ever possible).
However, there are other places in the home to consider.
Door Knobs and Light Switches – Use disinfecting wipes.
Kitchen Sponges – Soak those in water with some lemon juice and then microwave for about 1 minute. Replace your sponges every month or so.
Kitchen Drains/Kitchen Faucet Handles – Pour baking soda and white vinegar down the drain. Wait 5 minutes and then flush with boiling water. Wipe down handles with disinfecting wipes.
Cutting Boards – Scrub with baking soda and rinse with hot water.
Computer Keyboards – Disconnect the keyboard and spray with compressed air. Then wipe down keys and spaces in between with rubbing alcohol.
Pet Bowls – Wash pet food and water bowls at least every week – every day would be ideal.
