No wonder kids love to get sick! These 3 things most commonly used at home are dirtier than you think

Can you believe that you are sick after bathing your child? I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, but it's the truth. Of course, the protagonist is not CC or DD, it is impossible to think about it. Don't talk about me, Dad C, who can be called "cleanliness" alone, will not allow this kind of thing to happen in my house. The reason why I say that I saw it with my own eyes is the scene where Dad C and I were called by my best friend's "serial deadly call". It turned out that the baby of my "big injustice" best friend's family once again had numerous small bumps after taking a bath. I looked like it was bitten by a mosquito and bitten by an ant. As a result, his girlfriend denied it, saying: "As early as when the baby first got pimples, the bathroom was often sterilized and insecticided." Dad C also came over to take a look and agreed with her opinion. Ugh, what's going on here? Dad C walked around the bathroom, and suddenly asked, "How long have you used your water heater, have you taken it apart and cleaned it?" The words awakened the dreamer, and the disassembly was, uh, unsightly dirty. It's no wonder that Dad C likes to "bath" the home appliances when he is free. It turns out that the inside is so dirty. Fortunately, it was discovered early this time, otherwise the child would still be sick. Every day we say "love clean, pay attention to hygiene". As everyone knows, there are many sanitary corners in the home that are not in the corners, but in the most commonly used things. Especially these three things in the house, I don't know if I don't see it, I'm shocked when I see it, it's so dirty! 1. Water heaters To say that the most easily overlooked sanitary corner in the home, the water heater definitely bears the brunt. About the safety hazards of water heaters, I believe we have heard a lot. For this reason, I spent a lot of thought on purchasing a qualified water heater of a regular brand. However, do you think you can sit back and relax just by buying a water heater? It's not that simple! When we take a bath, we feel that the water is clean, maybe the inner tank of the water heater is already dirty. Many times this problem is ignored, in fact, you can understand it when you think about it. Everyone knows that water is rich in minerals, and heating will definitely produce precipitation. These precipitates in the water heater do not have a special discharge channel. Over time, they will naturally become scale and adhere to the inner tank, slowly turning the water dirty, and even breeding mites and bacteria. CCTV has a program called "Is it true?" In order to explore this issue, the water heaters that had been used for 2 years and 6 years were dismantled. As expected, scale was attached to the electric heating rod, and the water in the inner tank was also very dirty. The difference is that the water heater that has been used for 6 years is more serious. Such water heaters can be dangerous to children. First, children may develop skin diseases. When bathing, the child's skin is in a state of dilated pores. If the water contains bacteria and other unclean things, the most vulnerable to injury is the child's skin. What eczema, prickly heat, dermatitis... are all possible. The baby of our best friend's family that we mentioned at the beginning was obviously caught. Second, the child may infect private parts. When bathing, your child's private parts are inevitably exposed to the water. Some mothers who pay attention to the hygiene of private parts even focus on cleaning their children's private parts. Once there is a problem with the water, the child's urinary system is easily infected, and the consequences are disastrous. Therefore, it is really necessary to clean the water heater regularly. Clean it up at least once every 1-2 years! The cleaning steps of most water heaters are similar, but considering that the internal structure of water heaters of different brands is slightly different, and it is difficult to clean. I still recommend that you hire a professional to come to your door. Second, the water dispenser has a place on the list of "dirtiest things in the house". We usually come into contact with old-fashioned water dispensers like this. Come on, raise a claw~ Although there are more and more water purifiers and tea bar machines, I believe this kind of water dispenser is relatively common. You may not think that this water dispenser makes many people drink "dirty water". Because every time we pick up a glass of water, air will enter the drinking bucket, and all kinds of dust and microorganisms floating in the air will naturally have the opportunity to enter. Moreover, the inner tank of the water dispenser, the water outlet of the faucet, etc. are actually dead corners of hygiene. If you do not pay attention to cleaning, it is likely to deposit dust and bacteria. We usually don't look dirty, maybe all kinds of bacteria have exceeded the standard. It's not that I'm exaggerating, the Shanghai CDC has also tested bacteria at the water outlet of the water dispenser. The results showed that only 29.17% of the 336 water dispensers met the hygienic standard for the number of colonies contained in purified water. Don't think it's enough to drink the hot water on the side of the boil. Because, the water in most water dispensers cannot be boiled to 100 ° C, which means that the bacteria in the water cannot be killed at all. Just imagine, if children drink such water for a long time, it is easy to cause diarrhea, abdominal pain and other problems, and may even lead to communicable diseases. In addition to the old-fashioned water dispenser, the same is true for other water dispensers, where bacteria can easily take root and multiply. Therefore, it is recommended that you clean the water dispenser at least once a month. When I used this old-fashioned water dispenser at home, Dad C started it directly, cleaned it with the kind of chlorine-containing disinfectant or effervescent tablet, and then used citric acid to descale, and finally soaked in water, released water, and repeated several times. . However, to be honest, the entry should be more cautious. Since learning about the safety hazards of this old-fashioned water dispenser, my family has stopped using it. I switched to this water purifier, and the purified water filtered out is more secure to drink. 3. Washing machine When it comes to the sanitary corners of the home, the washing machine is also a "fish that slips through the net". Take my family as an example, raising two babies directly leads to a very high frequency of use of the washing machine. You think that every time you wash clothes, the washing machine tank you see looks like this: after using it for a while, you will find that the washing machine looks like this: you see, on the surface, the inner tub is still very clean, but I didn’t expect that the space between the inner and outer tubs has long been Dirt is all over. How did that happen? In fact, this is the dirt from our usual dirty clothes. A small part is discharged with the sewage, and the rest of the dirt is here. You know, there is an interlayer between the inner and outer barrels of the washing machine. When we wash clothes, the water flows back and forth here. After a long time, scale, dust, bacteria, mold will be attached to it. "Bacteria nests" are 1,000 times dirtier than clothes. In a humid environment, dirt can easily multiply and ferment, and it will be repeatedly carried into the water the next time you wash your clothes. In light cases, it will cause secondary pollution to clothes, and in serious cases, it may cause children's skin itching, allergies, and even a series of gynecological diseases. Therefore, usually a new washing machine should be cleaned almost every 1-2 months after 5 months of use. There are also many cleaning agents for washing machine slots, and you can choose a reliable brand for cleaning. This is the kind of cleaning agent that is commonly used in my home. Pour it into the washing machine and start the standard washing for 1 hour, and it can do a deep cleaning. Of course, if you have used a lot of washing machines that have never been cleaned, and you want to go through it thoroughly, you can also ask someone to disassemble and clean the machine. Hygiene issues should never be taken lightly. Even if we don't think it will hinder us, it is another matter for children with insufficient immunity. Water heaters, water dispensers, and washing machines that are not cleaned for a long time are as dirty and harmful to children as possible. If this is the case at home, wash it quickly to avoid making your child sick. If you have enough time, let's see if there are any dead spots in hygiene, and it is better to do a thorough cleaning.
