Antimicrobial Home Treatment

Do you have a clean home? We all know that our bathrooms are germ hotbeds, but did you know that many germs that will make you sick are lurking around your home in places you may never have considered?

 

Bacteria, fungus and germs can live in places you would normally consider clean. Our Antimicrobial Home Treatment can eliminate the germs.

 

A CLEAN KITCHEN SINK?

 

If you dropped a grape in your kitchen sink while rinsing it, would you think twice about popping it in your mouth? What if you dropped it in the toilet?

 

Although the thought of retrieving anything from your toilet bowl may be enough to make you sick, your toilet may be cleaner than your kitchen sink, says Eileen Abruzzo, director of infection control at Long Island College Hospital of Brooklyn, New York. Food particles from plates left to soak or rinsed from dishes on their way to the dishwasher can serve as a breeding ground for illness-causing bacteria, including E. coli and salmonella. They can get on your hands or spread to foods.

 

Although most people take steps to disinfect their toilet bowls, few give their kitchen sink the same consideration.  Many people will rinse their sinks, or wash them with soap and water. While they are clean, they are not sanitized.

 

YOUR SOFA MAY BE A HOTBED OF GERMS

 

A FAMILY sofa harbor’s more nasty bacteria than the average lavatory seat, a new study has found. Chair and sofa arms harbor 19,200 germs per 100 square centimeters – 12 times the amount on a lavatory seat, says the study carried out by Domestos and UNICEF

 

HIDDEN DANGERS IN YOUR BATHTUB

 

The place where you clean yourself is not so clean itself. According to WebMD, A recent study found staphylococcus bacteria in 26% of the tubs tested.

 

THE OBVIOUS PLACES OF GERMS

 

Then there are the obvious places where germs like to live – bathrooms, toilets, floors, door handles and others. These are the places that most people are already trying to keep clean.

 

Unfortunately, when using traditional cleaners, surfaces can get re-contaminated within minutes of being disinfected.
