Most germ-infested objects

Forget toilet seats and the cooker - the most germ-infested objects in your home are your TOWELS  

Scientists analysed tea towels; and found 90% of towels contained sickness causing bacteria and 26% even had E. coli.

Hygiene experts explained that the main problem is that towels retain moisture, allowing bacteria to breed 

It's not just your kitchen towels though... bacteria can also transfer from bathroom towels. Diseases like athlete's foot can be passed on to different family members.

Doctors advise that washing at 90c is the best way to get rid of the germs.
