You wash your dishes, scrub the toilets and bathtub. Clean the sinks, mop the floors, and dust the furniture and wipe down bathroom and kitchen counters. You think your home is clean. But do you have hidden mold?
But there are lots of places that can harbor germs, bacteria, and viruses that you might not think about cleaning. Because you don’t think about them, the germs can build up and mold can hide.
Hidden Mold in the Bathroom
When is the last time you cleaned your showerhead? Bacteria and molds can grow on the showerhead. You can inhale these hidden mold spores each time you turn on the water to take a shower. If you spash up a bit of nutrient-rich shampoo or body wash, you feed that hidden mold a little more.
Once a month or so, disinfect and clean your showerhead with a bit of Vital Oxide. This antimicrobial disinfectant spray is highly effective at low concentrations over a wide pH range. Plus, this disinfectant spray contains no VOC’s and is biodegradable.
While you have the bottle of Vital Oxide out, either spray it on the shower curtain or toss the shower curtain in the washing machine with this disinfectant to kill mold spores. Mold can hide in your shower curtain.
Hidden Bacteria in the Kitchen
Don’t forget the door handle, seal, and front of your refrigerator when you clean. Much of the food that comes into our homes is sporting microbial contamination. As we handle the food to put it away, we spread the microbes to the door handle and front of the fridge. Wipe these surfaces down on a regular basis with Vital Oxide Disinfectant to kill these molds, germs, and viruses. This disinfectant is safe to use in the kitchen. The active ingredient is chlorine dioxide and its primary by-product is chlorite, both break down into soddium chloride (which is simple salt…something that is probably already in your kitchen). You can even spray down the kitchen sink that you thought was clean!
