    Bacteria can also thrive in sponges and dish rags.  Make sure you launder rags often, and change out your sponges.  If you use a sponge, you can clean it by microwaving it for one minute so you don’t have to throw it away. You also want to make sure that you clean the things people touch often, faucet handles and door knobs.  Bacteria can live on surfaces for quite a long time provided there is at least 10% humidity.

    Bacteria can also thrive in refrigerators…. the cool, moist temperatures provide good breeding conditions.  Clean out the fridge often and be sure to clean up any spills… Eww!
