GermsBacteria 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.

What other things do you do to keep your home relatively clear of germs?
