Germs are everywhere. You may be surprised to know they are even lurking in your home. Where are the germiest places in the home? How can you protect your family from germs and bacteria? Here is a list of germ-laden places all around your home: Kitchen Sink Even the kitchen sink is germ laden. Think about all the food and dirt that goes down the drain. Believe it or not kitchen sinks are actually germier than toilet seats. The best way to keep your kitchen sink germ free is to use a bleach-based cleaner. You can also scrub your sink with a mild soap. White vinegar can be used to sanitize the sink and remove any stubborn stains or spots. Kitchen Sponge Not far from your kitchen sink is the kitchen sponge. Sponges are used to wipe up spills and messes and make a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and germs. Make sure to disinfect your sponge by tossing it in the dishwasher, or microwave a wet sponge for 1-2 minutes. Bed sheets This may give you the creepy crawlies but all the germs you come in contact with all day long end up in your bed. Your bed sheets are covered in sweat, skin, and bacteria from your body.  Wash your sheets about once a week in warm or hot water with a regular detergent. Wall-to-wall carpet Wall-to-wall carpet can be a trap for millions of germs and allergens.  Wall-to-wall carpets are full of pet dander, germs from dirty shoes, and mold.  The best way to clean Wall-to-wall carpeting is to use a vacuum with a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter.
