Think your home is squeaky clean? Think again. Find out what is making your home dirty, and how you can clean it up post-haste.
Did you know that the air inside your home can be up to five times more polluted than the air outside? Pretty gross, hey. But getting an air purifier is really going to help clean up the air inside your home.
The Dyson Pure Hot+Cool™ purifying fan heater captures 99.95 percent of the allergens and pollutants that make it inside your home. It has tonnes of great features too, including powerful heating and fan cooling, and an ultra-quiet night mode that keeps your bedroom temperate and virtually free of airborne nasties.
The suburb you live in can have a drastic impact on how polluted your home is. In a report published last year entitled Australia’s Most Polluted Postcodes, Sydney’s Botany was shown to have the worst pollution in the city, followed by Altona in Melbourne, Port of Brisbane in Brisbane, Parmelia in Perth, and Port Adelaide in Adelaide in fifth place.
Fancy sitting out in the garden taking in the sunrise in one of these suburbs? Yeah, maybe skip that one and watch from inside instead (with your windows closed and your purifier switched on!).
Turns out, the state you live in affects how clean your house is too. New South Wales is officially Australia’s dirtiest state, with 19 percent of polled participants saying they have left their homes uncleaned for a month or more.
In Victoria, South Australia and the Northern Territory that number was 15 percent, with Western Australia and Queensland at 13 percent. Time for a move?
You know what’s also really, really filthy? Your toothbrush-holder (it’s always the quiet ones…).
Soaking your toothbrush holder in a solution of vinegar and water, before giving it a good scrub will fix it right up though, and as for that chopping board, scrub it well with hot, soapy water after every use, and you should be right.
You know what else a sponge is? Full of germs — don’t forget, it absorbs whatever liquid it touches.
It is most likely the dirtiest item in your house. Popping used sponges in the microwave for one minute will kill any bugs, but changing them regularly is your best bet overall.
