Toilet habitually widely perceived as something very dirty. And rightly so. Even very clean in appearance (and smell) toilet is actually a haven gargantuan amounts of all sorts of bacteria and viruses, which together with all the other stand out from the human body, and get rid of which can only be conducted full-scale and very expensive special antibacterial and antiviral treatment.
But bacteria, viruses and parasites different eggs, which represent the most dangerous and, unfortunately, almost invisible to the naked eye dirt can accumulate not only in the toilet. Here are 20 common things that often even dirtier toilets, if you look at them under a microscope.
Ice – it’s the same water. And if the water is dirty, then the ice will be the same.Unfortunately, many of the restaurants did not attach importance to this fact. U.S. study showed that 70% served in the restaurants of ice contains more bacteria than the water in the toilet bowl. Very sad situation, as most viruses and bacteria very bad moves a little frost.
2. Tables in public institutions
The number of bacteria on the surface of conventional office desks almost 400 times more than in the toilet.
Constant contact with your fingers and porous material leads to the fact that all kinds of buttons very quickly accumulates and is always present in almost 200 times more bacteria than a toilet seat.
4. Mobile Phones
About the same problem and with the surfaces of mobile phones. Here, the bacteria accumulates up to 10 times greater than the toilet. Makes only that if the phone is used one person, the whole flora growing on his mobile phone, more or less synchronized with the bacteria that live on the skin of the host. Attach a phone to his ear someone else – it’s like that snuggle face – will not say what.
5. Restaurant menu
Card menu constantly passes from hand to hand, and, of course, no one washes. So very quickly it acquires a load of bacteria, which is 100 times higher than the dressing.
6. Chopping boards
Board contact with vegetables and raw meat, which is always a lot of bacteria. In addition the material from which they are made, with more difficult to clean. The only way to “put hygiene” – often change the very board.
Fleecy surface of any carpet – just the perfect storage of all kinds of bacteria, dust mites and dead skin particles. Conventional carpet square centimeter, usually carries a 4000 fold more bacteria than the same area of the toilet.
8. Reusable Shopping Bags
As shown by the microscope, these items many times dirtier than the dirtiest laundry.
9. Bullets remote control
This thing is often even dirtier than a mobile phone, which in turn is 10 times dirtier than a toilet.
Of course, it’s just a hotbed of bacteria, because the handles are all constantly taken arms, thus adding all the new portions of the bacteria, as well as particles of sebum, the skin itself, and all that can only be in the hands wound purity.
Most of them are much dirtier than a toilet.
Conditions for the accumulation and proliferation of bacteria is common, so it is only slightly gape as their number rapidly higher than in the toilet.
The dirtiest place in the bathroom – it is the area around the drain. Here resides and accumulates a huge amount of bacteria.
Abundance of loose material, and even the constant “feeding” of dead skin cells, sweat, fat, and bacteria that live on the skin leads to the fact that the pillows very quickly divorced not only hordes of bacteria, but also microscopic dust mites and mold.
The same is true for the mattress. If it does not change for several years, then it will inevitably zavedutsya dust mites. The naked eye can not see them, nor look like, real people are not interested in them – they eat only dead skin particles accumulated in the mattress. But the result of their life can be not only prolonged sneezing, but also asthma attacks and more severe allergic reactions.
16. Plastic bowls
After a few months of use under the rims of bowls accumulate more bacteria than the lid of the toilet.
Money, as we know, does not smell. But bacteria on them can be even greater than what they do not smell.
It would seem that this should be one of the cleanest places in the bathroom. But no. The inside of the shower head very quickly turns into an incubator for a variety of microorganisms.
Of course, handbags, where are such leaders in pollution as money, cell phones, keys and other little thing that constantly moves from pyr in hand, simply can not maintain its purity.
20. Kitchen sponges
Porous surface bacteria sponges provides good conditions so that their population does not even affect cleaners that from time to time applied to the surface of the sponge. As a result, the sponge is fast becoming a much dirtier than a toilet.
21. After reading all these terrible results of microbiological studies, many wonder: what does it wish to be saved from all these necessary things in life that are really dirty toilet bowl? The answer, oddly enough, is very simple – just follow the basic rules of hygiene.After a clean and healthy human skin itself very successfully “maintain order”, and reserves the right exactly as certain bacteria, as is necessary in order to continue to be healthy.
