E. Coli Superbug: Best Way To Stop It From Spreading
According to new research, E. coli is more commonly spread by failing to wash hands rather than eating uncooked food.Humans and animals actually carry some strains in their gut that are usually harmless. When it becomes dangerous, however, it can easily cause food poisoning (believed to be caused by consuming food and meat that is undercooked or isn’t prepared properly), and is easily the most dangerous that leads to infections in the bloodstream.
A cleaning business has wowed with a simple trick for making your bathroom smell beautiful and getting rid of any nasty toilet smells - and all you need is a bottle of fabric softener.
Posting on, Sadie's Professional Cleaning Services revealed how the cleaning product will banish nasty scents with every flush - without causing any damage to your toilet system.
'Just another exclusive cleaning tip from the Pros at Sadie's Professional Cleaning Services LLC,' the business posted.
21 Ways Smartphones Completely Changed Our Way of Life
Can you believe how we used to look up directions?!
'Pour a cup of laundry detergent/fabric softener in the tank of the toilet.'
Their cleaners said that the detergent will 'sink to the bottom and remain in the tank'.
'Each time you flush, a sweet aroma will be released in the tank, and the whole bathroom will smell amazing,' they said.
The experts added that neither your toilet nor your septic system will be damaged by the trick, meaning it's safe to try straight away.
People online were hugely impressed with the trick, with many saying they couldn't wait to give it a try.
'I'm giving it a go! They’re experts and I'm sure they know what they're talking about!' one person posted.
Afraid of catching the flu? 7 cleaning tips to keep it from spreading
Keep the flu from taking over your home with these easy steps.The flu spreads when the sick person coughs, sneezes or even talks, affecting people as far as 6 feet away! Flu germs are also spread by touching a surface that has flu viruses on it. That’s why Roberts recommends keeping the sick person confined to one room and one bathroom. It reduces exposure to the rest of the family, and limits the number of rooms you have to disinfect.
Others said they already swear by the trick and their toilets are fine.
But while many were on board with the idea, not everyone was impressed.
'Why on earth would you want your look smelling of fabric soggier? It's horrible!' one said.
Another added: 'Softener leaves a slimy film so will most likely in the long run clog up your cistern with gunk'.
Rachael Hallett, who owns a plumbing company, was also less than impressed:
'This can definitely damage your cistern. You shouldn't put anything in there. The seals etc aren't made for anything but water,' she said.
'I own a plumbing company and don't recommend them at all. Sometimes parts can't even be replaced and a whole new cistern is required. Depends on the brand you have.'

How To Clean Your Phone If You’re Worried About Coronavirus .
Statistically speaking, your phone is probably very dirty. Apple recently updated its online instructions to reflect that you can, in fact, use disinfectant wipes to clean your Apple devices. According to Apple’s support website, you can use Clorox Disinfecting Wipes or 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipes to wipe the display, keyboard, and other exterior surfaces of your Apple devices as long as you avoid getting moisture in any of the device’s openings. Don’t submerge your device in a cleaning liquid, and don’t use bleach, aerosol sprays, or abrasives, as they can wear down your phone’s oil resistant coating.
