My household towels….really?


Yes really.

How often do you use a clean kitchen hand towel? Did you know that kitchen, bath towels, as well as other in-home towels, are often receptacles for Coliform? Coliform is a common bacteria found in water, soil, human and animal waste.  Bacteria grows in wet moist conditions and towels provide one of the most common environments for them to occupy. So every time you use that kitchen towel (over and over) you are probably spreading sometimes-dangerous bacteria which can include salmonella and E.coli. You need to also include bath towels that lock in moisture, hold odors, and can harbor Coliform. Don’t feel bad….most of us use the same bath towel for days. However, try to launder them every three or four uses. If you are presently ill disinfect towels with chlorine bleach, otherwise, use a cup of vinegar in the washing machine. Wash again with regular detergent, give them a double rinse, and dry immediately.
