The combination of garbage + humidity is a breeding ground for bacteria because of all the food waste generated in the kitchen every day, plus all the washing and brushing and water everywhere.

2. Bedroom

Bedroom sheets cover pillows, must be diligently washed and changed to remove mites, the weather is good, we will sun a quilt.

But if the bedroom air circulation is poor, the lighting is not very good, living for a long time will produce odors, and even closet may be damp, when you want to run the whole room, it is a bit of a problem. I wish there was a little sun in the room! UV bacteria removal lamp to also, sterilization and mite removal, so convenient, wow!
