Don’t forget the bathmat…

I’ll never forget the state of some of the bathmats I encountered during my days of working on How Clean Is Your House?

Although they often looked a bit grubby, I was always amazed to discover how much faecal matter would be lurking in the fibres (we used to take swabs, send off to a lab and get the results back soon afterwards).

Just a little nudge to bear that in mind and to stick your mat in the hottest wash that it can bear – say once a week.
