We have a few helpful tips to keep your house clean and germ free. You would be surprised how bacteria can spread. Sometimes they can be in places you least expect. 
Lots of germs are harmless, many are even good for your health. But you can help protect yourself from those that aren’t by keeping your hands clean. Your hands transfer bacteria and viruses to your eyes, nose, and mouth. They can also transfer germs to others.

Although the mere thought of retrieving anything from your toilet bowl may be enough to make you sick, your toilet may be cleaner than your kitchen sink. 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.

Door handles and the t.v. remote are also breeding grounds for germs. The remote gets dropped on the floor, stuffed between the sofa cushions, coughed on and sneezed on. And everyone in the house handles it.

The bath tub where you clean yourself is not so clean itself. A recent study found staphylococcus bacteria in 26% of the tubs tested. A separate study had even worse findings for whirlpool tubs. After a study of 43 whirlpool tubs, it was found that all 43 had mild to dangerous bacterial growth. Almost all showed bacteria from fecal matter; 81% had fungi, and 34% contained staph bacteria.
