GERMS live everywhere in the home.
No matter how much we think we’ve washed and scrubbed, there are always a few areas that we fail to get to.
The bathroom is one space that we should pay extra attention to when performing our deep cleaning routine, as it gets used multiple times a day, usually by multiple people.
And according to the team at Care.com, there are certain spots in the bathroom that often need an extra scrub.
Speaking to Care, Debra Johnson from Merry Maids said we should clean our bathrooms every single day to avoid a daunting disaster down the road.
“Tackle a small chore before it becomes a big one,” she explained.

“I’m talking the toilet, the shower and tub, and the floors. Especially behind the toilet. It’s one of the most germ-ridden areas, so you really should be cleaning it once or twice per week.”
Johnson gave a rather unappealing explanation for why the toilet deserves so much time:
“Just think, every time you flush, the toilet water and waste mix together, sending plumes of microbes into the air and, in turn, all over the toilet.”
If it seems unrealistic to wipe down your shower or toilet every day, aim to do so at least twice a week.
