3 Everyday Home Objects That Are Dirtier Than Your Toilet

When most homeowners think they need to clean out their home, one of the first things they focus on is the toilet. After all, with the amount of waste passing through the toilet, it has to be one of the dirtiest items in any home — right?

While cleaning your toilet should be an essential part of your home maintenance routine, the truth is that there are plenty of other areas in your home that are harboring bacteria as well. Here are three common household items and objects that house cleaning companies in Bucks County know carry just as many (if not more!) germs than your toilet due to a lack of regular sanitization.

  • Your cellphone. Every time you touch something and then touch your cellphone, the bacteria from what you touch transfers to your phone screen. Wipe your phone down with a microfiber cloth throughout the day to keep bacteria away.
  • Your remote control. How often do you clean your remote control? If you’re like most people, you probably only clean your remote control when you spill something on it. This allows bacteria to propagate, causing you to get sick. To clean your remote, look for a disinfectant wipe made for electronics. Wipe it down every week to prevent germs from building up on this common electronic.
  • Your doorknobs. That’s right — if you don’t make a point to clean your bathroom doorknob, it could be dirtier than your toilet! Thankfully, a quick wipe down with a disinfectant wipe will be enough to kill any lingering bacteria. Remember to use a different wipe for each doorknob — one wipe isn’t enough to thoroughly clean all the knobs in your household.
