My Random Tuesday is about one random thing this week instead of several different things because I don't want you guys to be distracted. I need your full attention on this one subject because I really need some feedback. If you are just itching for some more randomness, then head on over to Keely's.
The other night D Hubs and I caught an episode of MythBusters that was really kind of disturbing. They tested the cleanliness of 8 objects that people touch everyday. The results are quite shocking and really got me freaking out a little.
The results go from most dirty to least dirty.
1. Kitchen Sponge
3. Light Switch
4. Computer Keyboard
5. Toilet Seat
6. Cell Phone
7. Shopping Cart
8. Hotel Remote
I've seen some gnarly bills working at a bank before, so I thought that the money would be #1 by far! They said that the amount of microorganism colonies found on the sponge were so much that it was impossible to even count!
Enter me, freaking out! I knew that those suckers were bacteria hoarders, but to have a sponge be dirtier than all of those things on the list has really got me rattled. They didn't specify how old that sponge was that they tested. I really wish they would have so I can know if changing them out weekly like I do is enough. I'm tempted to go to Costco and by a gazillion sponges so I can change them out everyday.
I want to know what you guys use. Do you use a sponge or a scrubbing brush to clean your pots and pans and things that aren't dishwasher safe? How often do you replace them? Or do you use some other kind of gadget that I don't know about?! Please enlighten me and tell me what the cleanest option is!
