Dirty Dishwater common source of infection around the home
The water in which you wash your dishes may also be a common source of infection around the home. The same is true in public eating places. For instance, a public health officer examined the dishwater in one large restaurant and found no less than 400,000
Germs in every teaspoonful of that dishwater in which cups and plates were being washed! No soap was being used. To make matters worse, the water was not hot enough. Those germs were just having a nice tepid bath, and this encouraged them to grow all the more vigorously! Such dishwashing is useless, and even dangerous. It only spreads germs around and results in more trouble and more illnesses.
