Here's some good news.


I know everyone is carrying around wipes and spraying everything kill some germs. So I bet you're cleaning a lot more and  you're cleaning different things than you normally would.

There's a bunch of stuff you've always considered to be cesspools of FILTH that actually don't have very many germs at all.

1. Coins.

Coins are made of metal. But copper, nickel, and silver don't support germ life - they POISON it. Germs actually DIE if they try to live on coins.

2. Toilets.

Get this: Scientists say there's 200 times more fecal matter on CUTTING BOARDS than on toilets. Apparently that's because people are more likely to clean their toilet. I don't know how's not washing their cutting board after using it, though.

3. Your dog's slobber.

Humans are way dirtier than dogs. And dog slobber has antibacterial stuff in it.

4. Doorknobs.

People are so freaked out about picking up germs from doorknobs in public restrooms, they don't touch them that much. The knobs on the way IN are way worse than the ones on the way out.

5. Trashcans.

Basically, if you line your trashcan with plastic and keep it dry, it's not all that dirty. Germs need moisture to survive.

6. Actual DIRT.

Unless there's a bunch of POOP in it, the dirt in your backyard is perfectly safe. So if the kids come in from the back with dirt all over their hands, they're fine.


What's something you've cleaned lately that's changed? Are you cleaning more often, more areas?

Cleanly yours,
