It's that time of the year - Spring cleaning. But before you go grab that bucket and mop and set out to "do damage," you first need to read up on where to find the germy hot spots in your house. You may be surprised where those nasty germs like to hang out.

According to a recent article published in The Sun, germs and "ickies" are not just found in the bathroom - but they're EVERYWHERE. All you need to do is look at those areas where you and your family spend the majority of your time - they're the dirtiest.
