In this post we will talk about how to properly clean your underwear, some parts of your body, and some stuff in your house. Hopefully, this information will be helpful for you.



Underwear

“Every pair of dirty underwear has traces of feces,” says Kelly Reynolds, PhD, environmental microbiologist at the University of Arizona—and that includes E. coli and other bacteria are in there as well.

In order to kill germs and keep them from spreading to other clothes, be sure to wash your underwear separately from the rest of your laundry on the highest temperature possible, because many germs survive in cold water, Reynolds says. Dry until the load is fully dry, this is really important, because damp laundry is a perfect environment for bacteria growth.



Bras

When it comes to washing your bras, you can do it every two or three wears before laundering, says Gwen Whiting, co-founder of The Laundress, a line of delicate detergents and soaps. But if you have been working out or just sweating a lot, it is necessary to wash your bra – letting it air out won`t be enough.

If you want to fight all those microbes, you can follow the same steps Reynolds advises for underwear. But if fragile lacy is important for you, and you want your bra lasted longer, the best thing to do would be hand wash it with a mild detergent and let air dry.



Yoga mat

Just like your handbag, your yoga mat is a natural magnet for germs and crud on the floor beneath it. Add here all those bacteria from your feet, hands, and sweat as you strike those poses.

First thing you can do to make it better is to make sure that you always put the same side of the mat down on the floor, Schmidt says; to do so you should choose a mat with different colors or patterns on top and bottom so it would be easy to remember which side to use. And to clean it right, you can use a dish soap and hot water, you can do it after every couple of uses, says Linda Cobb, author of Talking Dirty With the Queen of Clean.



Sponges and scrub brushes

“If you let your sponge sit out wet all night, it’ll have all sorts of bacteria growing on it,” Dr. Weiss says. Perhaps, not everyone knows that sponges and brushes that are supposed to help clean something, can be the most contaminated sites for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, mold, and general bacteria in your entire home, Reynolds says.

To make it right, it is preferable to clean them on the top rack of the dishwasher for the full cycle every time you run it. Or you can microwave a slightly damp sponge (saturate it with white vinegar or lemon juice, then rinse and wring out) on high for two to three minutes and allow to air dry, Cobb says.

Face

Every time you touch your face, you transfer all the germs you’ve encountered in your day to it, says Miami-based dermatologist Heather Woolery-Lloyd, MD. But this fact shouldn`t make you that paranoid cleaner – excess washing and scrubbing you face skin can cause irritation and inflammation, and even break down your skin’s natural barriers, making it easier for germs to get in, Dr. Woolery-Lloyd says.

The best way to clean your face would be cleansing it once daily (unless your skin is especially oily). Apply the cleanser in a circular motion with your fingertips, then rinse with warm, not hot, water. And, finally, you can rinse it with lukewarm water.

Nails

We all wash our hands, cause we know how important that is, but germs like staphylococcus and streptococcus can lurk under your nails too, as well as bacteria that can end up giving you diarrhea. These are the facts found in a recent research from Aston University in Birmingham, England.

To keep your nails really clean, use a special nailbrush or toothbrush and antibacterial soap daily, says celebrity nail stylist Jenna Hipp.



To gently brighten nails, mix 1 tablespoon hydrogen peroxide (a natural germ-killer) with 3 tablespoons baking soda, and apply this mixture underneath and on top of nails as needed with a cotton swab, and leave three to five minutes. Rinse with warm water, and smooth on hand lotion and cuticle oil to moisturize. Then you can apply your favorite hand cream as well.
