Dirtiest Places in Your Home

20 items ranked

The places you forget to clean, or don't clean often enough are full of germs and grime. Fortunately, most of these germs are easily handled by our immune system and a little germ exposure can actually be a good thing since it builds up the immune system. Still, it would probably be good to clean these up a bit more regularly.

Kitchen Sink Report Abuse
Food particles are a perfect environment for growing bacteria, add to that the moist nature of sinks and bacteria are set. Toilets are much much cleaner than sinks. Every time you wash your dishes also be sure to clean the sink with something stronger than water and bleach or disinfect it regularly.

Makeup Applicators Report Abuse
It is recommended that you replace powders and eye shadows every 2 years and mascara every 3 months. Also, don’t share mascara. That is one of the fastest ways to get eye infections.

Women's Purse Report Abuse
These bags travel everywhere with us and are placed on a variety of surfaces that may not be the cleanest. Plus they are constantly being touched and riffled through, without being regularly cleaned.
