The bathroom is the place you go to get yourself clean, but that is a difficult task if your bathroom is full of germs, or is dirty itself. The bathroom should be the room in your house you put the most effort into making germ free. The following are some tips for dealing with germs in the bathroom:
Tip one: Start with the tub or shower area. You use this to clean your body, and so spreading germs through the tub can be a big deal. So, the thing you want to do is first realize that the tub and shower are far less clean than most people want to think. People pee in the shower, they blow their nose, they wash away all kinds of things. They don’t all go down the drain, some stick to the surface of your tub and shower, and can be spread. So, clean the tub and shower regularly with a disinfectant cleanser. If you can, do it once a week.
Tip two: Close the toilet seat before you flush it. Fecal matter is full of bacteria and other germs. It is the nature of the poop. So, make sure that you close the toilet seat before you flush. While flushing helps take a lot of those germs down the drain, they can become airborne on small water particles, so help keep them controlled by always flushing the toilet.
Tip three: Clean handles. People clean the toilet bowl, the sink bowl, and the shower, but forget that they carry germs on their hands, and spread them on faucets, handles, etc. So, when cleaning your bathroom, take the time to disinfect the handles of the toilet, sink, and shower or tub.
Tip four: Disinfect your trash can. The garbage in the bathroom has a lot of germs in it. The bathroom is a warm, moist place, which means germs grow and spread, and the waste receptacle is a prime place for this. So, make sure you empty it, and disinfect it between each bag of trash. Use a liner, as this will help contain the germs, and wash it thoroughly.
Tip five: Clean your countertop. Your countertop may come in contact with your toothbrushes, your hands, your hair brushes, and so on. There are a lot of things that touch your countertop, and because your sink is in your countertop, you probably get spit, and other things all over it. It can be a germ catcher if it is not cleaned regularly. Use a strong disinfectant and clean the counter and sink in your bathroom regularly.
If you are trying to deal with germs in the bathroom, the best thing you can do for yourself is be consistent. If you regularly keep things clean, and then deep clean once a week or so, you can rest assured that the room you are using to clean yourself is not actually a place spreading germs.
