1. 85-87% of the average person’s time is spent indoors at home. This means that keeping our home cleans should be one of our priorities.

2. By cleaning for two hours, you burn 200 worth of calories. In fact, different cleaning chores burns varying amount of calories in the body. Mopping for an hour, for example, can burn about 153 calories and scrubbing the tub for 15 minutes lets you shed 90 calories.

3. Every year about 300,000 cases of reported illnesses are foodborne. Making it a habit to wash your hands after handling food is the best way to avoid falling victim to such illnesses.

4. You need to leave antibacterial cleaners on dirty surfaces for 30 to 60 before wiping them away. It allows enough time for the cleaner to absorb dirty and kill bacteria and germs.

6. Iceland, according to researchers at Columbia and Yale Universities, is the cleanest country in the world having a score of 93.5. While Sierra Leone ranks the lowest having only a score of 32.1.

The scores were based on several factors such as water and air quality; greenhouse emissions; environmental public health; and the diversity of the ecosystem.

7. Your kitchen sink is dirtier than your toilet seat! That is because people focus on cleaning and disinfecting the toilet more than they do on the sink thinking that the former is dirtier than the latter. In fact, E.coli thrives more on a wet and moist sink.
