How to Reduce Bacteria in Your Bathroom

How to Reduce Bacteria in Your Bathroom

Keep germs at bay in your bathroom with these bacteria-fighting products.

1. A touch-free faucet makes avoiding germs easy. 

Oft-touched surfaces are hotbeds of germ activity. Use a touch free faucet and avoid picking up unwanted visitors. Proximity-sensing technology allows the faucet to detect your presence, so it doesn’t waste battery power or water. And it can operate by single touch, too.

2. Next time you’re cleaning the bathroom, switch out toxic chemicals for more natural ingredients.

Lactic acid helps dissolve soap scum and citric acid is a toilet-cleaning powerhouse.

3. Don’t keep your toothbrush in a cup where it can pick up bacteria.

Store it in a UV toothbrush sanitizer, which zaps bristles with a course of UV light strong enough to kill 99.9 per cent of H1N1, salmonella and E. coli.

4. Banish damp towels, which can harbor mold and mildew, in favor of a quick dry option. 

Organic cotton bath towels are medium-weight (550 grams per square meter), so they’re plush and cozy, but dry quickly.
