Egemba Chinonso Fidelis, also known as Aproko Doctor, has recently shed light on an unsettling fact about kitchen sponges.
According to him, these seemingly harmless cleaning tools might actually harbor more germs than a toilet seat.
This revelation serves as a wake-up call for many individuals who have never considered the potential hygiene hazards lurking in their own kitchens.
Aproko Doctor goes on to explain that kitchen sponges accumulate a staggering amount of germs over time, mainly because they are rarely replaced.
He highlights the fact that these sponges have tiny pores that easily trap food particles, creating an ideal environment for bacteria to thrive.
Consequently, they become breeding grounds for various harmful germs.
In his plea to the public, Aproko Doctor underscores the importance of regularly changing kitchen sponges, especially for those who may have been using the same sponge for years.
Simply replacing your sponge on a regular basis can significantly contribute to a cleaner and healthier kitchen environment, ultimately reducing the risk of contamination and illness.
He also added that people who could not change their sponges because they don’t have the money for it should use bleach on it to disinfect it.
He stated that they could also use their microwave which will help kill the microbes.
