The cleanliness and hygiene of our house is very important, especially in the case of environments such as the bathroom. Everyone thinks they have their own bathroom always clean and tidy. Some people clean it every day, others clean it with different frequencies, but certainly no one can imagine the amount of bacteria that develop in our bathroom.unlike you might think, the toilet in the bathroom is by no means the only receptacle of germs and bacteria. Unfortunately, these dangerous enemies of our health can easily proliferate in other places of our bathroom.
In which areas of the toilet do bacteria proliferate most?
The toilet flush, washbasin, wipes, door handles, light switch and the seemingly harmless ducks and rubber toys with which we cheer the bath of our children can be a potential refuge for bacteria.
We think about how our toilet can be the cause of infections if it usually contains a million bacteria. Always remember to close the toilet seat after use and sanitize it often.
The washbasin must be sanitized very often if we want to eliminate the large amount of bacteria that settle on its surface. Since soap can also become a receptacle for germs and bacteria, it is advisable to use the soap dispenser and not the classic soap. We try not to share the towels on which the bacteria can survive because the humidity and heat of the wipes present themselves as the ideal environment for their reproduction. Replacing them often could certainly be a good habit as well as the equally important one of washing hands often.
Even toothbrushes that we use about three times a day can be contaminated. Pull the flush and always close the toilet seat can prevent germs and bacteria from spreading quickly in the environment and especially reach our toothbrushes (which however must be covered by the special toothbrush cover). Washing and sanitizing the toothbrush is therefore useful to do very little if then we do not adopt behaviour in the bathroom absolutely simple but necessary.
Pay attention also to the joints of the tiles, where due to the humidity that is normally created in the bathroom, a large amount of mold is created.
Receptacles of germs and bacteria risky for our health can also be the sponge net that we use during the shower or bath. If the sponge remains in the hot, humid environment of the shower or bath, it can easily become the home of bacteria.
Even more dangerous can be the ducks or other rubber toys that we usually use to make the little ones’ bath more pleasant. Some bacteria that develop because of the water that remains inside them and then comes out of the whistle can be harmful as they could cause real infections.
Even if the bathroom seems clean and sanitized we must always remember that unfortunately the bacteria, invisible to us, thrive with great ease.
