After all, if we thought about those germy surfaces all the time, we might drive ourselves crazy, right? Well, without obsessing over it, there are some items we use all the time that should really be disinfected often. It doesn’t have to take a lot of time, and it could save you from getting sick. Here are 8 germ-laden items you should be disinfecting regularly.
1. Hand Towels
Whether in your kitchen or bathroom, hand towels are a fabulous source for germs. If your towel doesn’t dry completely in short order, it will breed bacteria. Add to that the fact that not everyone washes their hands properly before using the towel. It all results in a quick build-up of germs. While you’re unlikely to need a fresh towel every day, you should change them out for clean ones a couple of times per week.
