1. Kitchen

Soap bars have long been used in a household. Yet one thing is that soap is not meant to, and does not, kill germs. 'So,' says Dr. Reynolds, 'they can end up collecting germs...it's not a sanitizing or disinfecting product, it's a cleaning product.'

On the other hand, make use of liquid soaps and shower gels. However, in the latter case, we must remember to disinfect the bottle's pump regularly too.

Your kitchen sink probably contains 100,000 bacteria per square centimeter. Much of this bacteria comes from food, including bugs like E. coli and salmonella. The food is also eaten by the germs and they grow as a result.

2. Washing machine.

Rather like your bar of soap, the washing machine is a used for cleaning, not disinfecting. Therefore clothes fresh from the washer are in fact caked in germs that are not killed in the washing machine, but in the hot dryer.

3. Public toilets.

Public toilets are obvious places for large numbers of germs to congregate. The worst places are the sinks, stall doors, tissue dispensers and entrance doors. However, research has shown that using the toilet seat is not dangerous, which is a little surprising to me!
