USA Today Confirms Toilets are Cleaner Than Your Kitchen Sponge…

Click here for the original article link, but here’s the main takeaways:

  • The kitchen sink is oftentimes dirtier than your toilet – No thanks!
  • Most kitchen sponges are “germ bombs”
  • Wet kitchen sinks providing “damp playgrounds for fecal bacteria” — their words (insert grossed out emoji)
  • A 2017 study shows sinks and sponges harbor fecal bacteria in 44% of homes.
  • The same study shows 15% of homes tested positive for E. coli — mainly in..yes..KITCHEN SINKS.
  • “Most people disinfect their toilets far more than their sinks, where leftover food particles can mingle with bugs from raw meat and our own poorly washed hands. Sponges soaking in that environment hardly stand a chance.”
  • USA Today provides a handful of solutions to clean sponges and maintain them to limit the amount of bacteria build up, but then it says to throw them out after a week  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ .
