But this time, rather than sharing a top cleaning hack she has revealed one of the most commonly used home items that is full of germs.

Alongside remote controls and door handles, this clean queen has said that light switches are one of the most touched items in a home.

Jemma, from Glasgow, posted a snap on Instagram showing a chrome light switch covered in smudged fingerprints.

Next to it showed it gleaming after a good clean.

“One of the most touched things in your house hold with germs on them!”

She’s not the only one who has highlighted the importance of cleaning commonly used household items.

People have taken to social media to encourage others to make sure they were keeping themselves safe during the coronavirus pandemic.

One user mentioned toys, keyboards and mobile phones beside light switches in a list of items that should be cleaned regularly.

While another pointed out: “Light switches are a high-touch surface that is often forgotten when cleaning.”

It comes after a cleaning pro revealed the places people always forget to clean in their kitchen that’ll silently be breeding germs.
