It is common to think of the everyday personal items we use as clean. We are the only people that use them, right? So why should we worry about germs if that is the case? Germs can collect from elsewhere and spread remarkably fast. Here are three everyday items you probably would not think to clean:
Cell phones are one the more common items for people to use and are a meeting point for your hands and your mouth. This allows germs on your hands to be transferred to your phone and then to you, which increases your risk to be infected by any harmful bacteria you touch. Cell phones also pose a risk in a reverse fashion. The saliva on the mouthpiece can come into contact with your hands and then spread to anything that you touch.
TV Remotes and Game Controllers
It is common to hear that hotel TV remotes are not the cleanest item to touch, but even your personal remote can pose a risk. People rarely think to clean their TV remotes or game controllers, yet they are held in your hands for extended periods of time and are exposed to any bacteria present on your hands.
It may be obvious that the bottom of your shoe is quite dirty as it is constantly in contact with the ground. The top of the shoe, including shoe laces, is frequently exposed to spills of everything from food to garbage. A lesser known residue to frequently be found on a shoe lace: urine. Disgusting? You bet.
