Coronavirus Alert: Find Out The Top 7 Dirtiest Spots in Your Home

Coronavirus has taught us the importance of cleanliness! Although everyone cleans their house on normal days, these days experts from all over the world are suggesting that special attention should be paid to cleanliness. The only way to defeat the coronavirus is to take special care of cleanliness. According to experts, you should wash your hands frequently to avoid the coronavirus. But you must also know that germs and viruses are not only found in your hands but also many places of your home. Therefore, it is very important to clean the hands as well as the places where the virus is most likely to reach. Let us tell you the 7 dirtiest places in your house, which is very important to clean daily.

Door handles, knobs and electric switches 

After entering the house, people first touch the gate handle, knob and switchboard. After this, you can wash your hands and get rid of the virus. But when children or other members present in the house touch these places, then viruses and bacteria can enter their body through their hands. Therefore, clean knobs, handle and switches twice daily with the disinfectant chemical.



You love your pets as a member of your family and clean them regularly. But many germs and viruses do not affect humans but can make animals sick and reach other members of your house.


If you go out of the house to get the essentials, then even after returning, clean the hands thoroughly. But some experts believe that the coronavirus can enter the house through your clothes. Recently, scientists have also discovered how long the coronavirus can remain alive on clothes and how to wash clothes to avoid it.
