You know how a bathtub can look fairly clean, simply because of shampoo and body wash being used in it frequently. Usually, it is a huge buildup of soap scum, or a more obvious sign, such as mildew, that gets us bringing out the cleaning supplies. But how many of us can say we really gave the bathtub a good scrub as opposed to a quick once over?

The Hygiene Council tested family bathtubs and found that the germ that is most commonly responsible for that staph infections was found in over 1/4 of the bathtubs tested… while that same germ was only found in 6% of garbage cans!
And the rest of your bathroom? Well, for starters, the toilet seat has LESS bacteria on it than your bathroom sink and sink faucet.
