It was reported in the papers recently that in many households, dishclothes are more contaminated than toilet handles. When I think of it I realise this is very true. Many people use the dishclothes for the whole day before washing it, usually in soap and water only. After every wipe the dishcloth collects bacteria which is then transferred to other surfaces when you wipe with the same dishcloth.
I have a microwave oven in my kitchen which I hardly use. I believe that cooking must be done on the stove for health purpose. However it is very useful when comes to sterilizing the dishcloth. I wash it with soap and water first. Then squeeze dry it before putting it into the microwave for 2 minutes. Then I take it out to dry it. You can sterilize kitchen sponges in the same way too. That’s it - very easy, simple and effective.
It is very important to keep learning about all the various health hazards around to protect your health. When you are healthy you can be happy. Do add and comment.
Thought of the day……
Of all the “attitudes” we can acquire, surely the attitude of gratitude is the most important and by far the most life-changing.
