7 Dirtiest Places in Indian Homes

Mum, you just served me about a billion microbes!!! No, you won’t hear your child say this. At least not until they are 10 or older, when they have attended a biology class about microorganisms, or probably seen a science show on the Discovery channel. Which means we may be inadvertently serving our children a regular supply of disease causing microbes, without either party ever discovering it for a very long time.

Thanks Neetu for such a useful information. The knife part is true, we generally ignore the knives most and also the remote. will take care of the same.

Thank you Kamala. My son is 12 and even then I have to keep reminding him to move the remote away from his face... :)

Some more places to be cleaned frequently include: Door Handles, car steering wheels, computer keyboard and mouse, and most stationery items.

Hi Sujana, absolutely agree with the mixer cleaning bit. The water turns surprisingly dirty. Another thing that bothers me is how we tend to not thoroughly clean the sandwich makers and the toasters, plus, electric appliances can be cleaned only so much. I try my best and am still learning, while also trying not to get obsessive about it :)

Hey Praveen! Glad that you liked what you read. Its interesting how we tend to stop noticing the small dirty spaces and focus on overall cleaning instead. I myself was ignorant for a very long time :)

useful info Neetu... As you said the first thing which comes into mind is the toilet when we talk about the cleanliness. When we go next, there are many places which gives a big shelter to these bacteria. things like toys especially soft toys, tooth brush stand, the shoe rack. As per my notice the washers of mixer jars are gr8 places for them. I really bend hard to clean up these rubber washers. I was educated by a mechanic when I take my mixer jar to him for some problem. He explained me how a jar can contaminate the food and how dangerous it is. After every use one should clean the jar by loading it with some warm water for about 1/2 a minute(at least with cold water when u r in hurry), and I was shocked to see the color of water, 'coz my jar was neatly cleaned and sun dries well. After trying it at home, I never stopped following the cleaning process even in my hectic times. Thanks for the useful info Neetu.

Nice one! The places where we actually think most germs survive and the cleanest-our toilets. Even things like the cloth or paper bags in which we bring our groceries home in, are full of germs! Reading this article makes me want to go and scrub the sink and then throw the sponge into the bin! Great blog Neetu. We need to create awareness of this kind.

That a good piece of information neetu.. True that we know in certain areas where we can find these microbes and pathogens few of them are generally unknown and ignored.. thanks for the info...
