Forgetting to Wash Your Sheets

Nobody likes to admit this one, but it happens to everyone at some point. You crawl into bed one night and smell something slightly off. Then it hits you: you haven’t washed those sheets in a month. Along with sweat and dirt, who knows what’s lurking in your bed.

Not Washing Your Pillows

Even when people do wash their sheets, very few even think about washing their pillows. Even when you cover them with cases, pillows eventually collect germs, mites, and other yucky stuff. You also need to wash them once a month. This will rid them of those nasty things that make their way inside to the stuffing.

Not Cleaning Your Keyboard

More germs live on a frequently used keyboard than on a toilet. Just think about how you type that email and then chew on your nails. Now those germs are in your mouth. While most people do not even think about cleaning their keyboards, they should probably start.

Not Using a Sheet or Pillowcase

Pillowcases and sheets are not just for style, as they add comfort and an extra layer of protection to beds. Sheets and pillowcases are a whole lot easier to clean and maintain than pillows and mattresses. Unless you plan on steam-cleaning your mattress on a regular basis, use a sheet to protect your bed from dead skin cells, sweat, and nighttime accidents if you have kids.

Using Lemon Wedges in Your Water

Lemons may help that plain water taste better, but unless you washed them thoroughly before placing them on your glass, just skip it. If you ask for a lemon wedge in restaurants, there is no way you can make sure the staff washed the lemon and that the server used a gloved hand or tong to place it in your glass.

Biting Your Nails

This is a common habit, especially with kids. While it may not seem so harmful, just imagine all of the dirt and bacteria that live on the ends of your fingers and under the nails. People who bite their nails end up ingesting all of those gross microscopic things. This is especially true if they don’t regularly wash their hands.

Not Washing Pot Holders

Pot holders touch so many different surfaces in your kitchen, including food, so it’s vital to throw them in the wash on occasion. Not washing them allows germs and bacteria to build up. They’ll transfer to food, your hands or mouth, and other food-preparation surfaces in your kitchen.

Picking Food Out of Your Teeth with Your Nails

Sleeping in Your Contacts

While sleeping in your contacts may seem more convenient, especially after a long and tiring day, it can cause eye infections. Sleeping in contacts exposes your eyes to bacteria, as it means you’re not cleaning the lenses as frequently as you should. Although taking them out is a hassle, it goes a long way in ensuring eye health.

Sleeping in Makeup

This one’s another habit that is hard to kick once you start because it’s so convenient, but can cause serious issues. Along with clogging your pores and wreaking havoc on your skin, that makeup you sleep in rubs off on the pillows and sheets, which makes them collect more dirt and germs more than they already do.
