Germs are everywhere, whether it’s on your hands, keyboards, kitchen sinks or other places. Which makes it even more important to be mindful of your own hygiene during this pandemic outbreak, here are three germiest items you bring home that will potentially threaten your health:
Cash is one of the most dangerous transmitters of the current global pandemic. From a study, experts found that most of the cash notes are covered in 3,000 types of bacterias! Therefore, be sure you wash your hands frequently and thoroughly after touching cash notes.
Instead, you can avoid notes by going cashless, online bank transfers, e-wallets and many more while grocery shopping in order to reduce the risk of infections.
According to a researcher, your phone is an ideal place for breeding harmful germs as the coronaviruses can survive on surfaces like glass, metal or plastic for up to nine days. Without sanitizing your phones often, the viruses can be easily transmitted to your countertops, remote control, doorknobs or other high-touched surfaces by your germy hands.
You can wipe your phones or high-touched surfaces by using an alcohol-based product to get rid of the unwanted germs or viruses during this pandemic outbreak.
Reusable shopping bags
Well, using reusable shopping bags for grocery shopping is a great way to cut down on plastic waste and protect our environment. However, your reusable shopping bags can develop harmful bacterias such as E.coli and Salmonella when you place raw meat, poultry or any other pre-cooked foods into the same bag.
These harmful bacterias can negatively impact your health as they can lead to food poisoning, diarrhea or vomiting. A quick hack to clean reusable shopping bags is tossing them in the washing machines on the hottest setting at least once a week to kill the bacterias effectively.
