Here are a few germ hotbeds in your home that need daily cleaning.

Toothbrush Holder

While cleaning your bathroom the most important thing you need to clean is your toothbrush holder. Many germs that reside on the toothbrush seep down the toothbrush holder. The toothbrush holder is mostly ignored while cleaning, therefore it becomes a hotbed for bacteria and viruses overtime. You should clean your toothbrush holder daily in order to keep yourself and your family safe from germs.

Light Switches

Take a moment and think about all the people who have touched the light switches in your home. Now think about the last time you cleaned them. Light switches are the most common thing used by everyone in any household but are not cleaned regularly. A lot of germs sit on them, so you should clean the light switches with a damp cloth soaked in cleaning chemicals to get rid of those germs. Make sure that the washcloth is not dripping so that the water does not seep into the sockets.


The faucets and sink handles need to be cleaned diligently. These areas are a breeding ground for bacteria. Use hot water and an all-purpose cleaner to clean these areas regularly. If you wash a lot of raw meat, the faucets and sink handles need to be disinfected daily.


Door knobs are another place that holds on to a lot of germs as everyone handles them to open and close the door. They are the most used yet the least cleaned part of your home. If not cleaned properly they can become a hotspot of germs and bacteria. So, it is important that you clean your doorknobs with a washcloth and disinfectant.
