Before turning off the kitchen light until tomorrow, one last consideration for your cloths. Fill the sink with some hot water and a splash of bleach, or even vinegar, soak the cloths overnight, and rinse them the next morning. It is the best way to keep germs at bay.

Although it may seem incredible, the dishcloths and tea towels may contain more bacteria than your toilet. Using a single cloth to clean everything, or drying with the same cloth, can be counterproductive. It is best to use a cloth or cloth for each thing and wash them often, depending on their use. Put them in the washing machine, along with towels, for example and hang them to dry well.
