[Alert] DEADLY Infection Threat Lurking in Your Home!
Household Appliance SPREADS Bacteria [SHOCKING]
Your home is supposed to be your safe place right?
You do your best to keep up with updates, home improvements…
Even day-to-day cleaning.
Sure it might not be tip-top shape…but it’s relatively clean. Right?
As much as you may strive to keep a clean home, there’s one household appliance that SPREADS antibiotic-resistant BACTERIA.
Can you guess which one it is?
Researchers at the University of Bonn found, in a recent study, that your washing machine is a breeding ground for antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
And from there it can spread… to your clothes, towels, bedsheets.
And then ultimately to you.
The discovery was made at a local children’s hospital, where a dangerous pathogen called klebsiella oxytoca, was being passed along to newborns.
After a detailed investigation, they found that pathogen was traveling via the washing machine used to supposedly “clean” the babies’ clothes.
These “clean clothes” became a transmitter for this pathogen, allowing it to spread to more and more children.
And if this type of bacteria can spread there, that means it can also spread in residential homes.
To help prevent this from occurring, make sure you have a washing machine that reaches a temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
Your home washing machine washes at a lower temperature because your hot water heater is set to about 120 degrees to save money and to avoid burns.
But if there are young children, elderly adults, or sick folks in your household, it might be time to consider a higher temperature on your water heater.
If you go this route, be sure to also install anti-scaled valves in your sinks and showers.
You can also prevent the spread of germs and pathogens by cleaning the washing machine itself.
At least once a week run an empty cycle with a cup of bleach or vinegar.
Also, after washing, keep the door open to allow it to air out. Also, regularly wipe down the ring around the plastic door with some antibacterial cleaner.
Try some of the above tips to cut back on the germs and ensure your laundry is clean.
