Germs In Our Homes

We clean our home often, and almost every day. Although that may make our home look clean, but how do we know that our home is really clean without germs? The truth is, even after cleaning there are still many germs which we cannot detect with our naked eye. An independent study1 found that our home is in fact a hotspot for germs. Move your mouse over the pictures below and you will be surprised to see the number of germs found on each of the areas.
