I have heard this before, but I guess it depends how clean your kitchen is.

Horrific isn't it? Imagine if we could actually see all these teeming bacteria all around us...
That innocent looking kitchen sponge looks so clean, who'd have guessed it was supplying free housing to thousands of happy little bacteria.

Scare tactics. We are surrounded by germs all the time, but if your immune system is healthy, you won't be affected by them. And don't use anti-bacterial soap - it will destroy the natural defences on your skin. Soap and water is fine.

We have long put our chopping boards in the dishwasher and bleach once a week. Also it is debatable how hot your washing machine water is so we feel washing dishclothes in there is a bit daft. Instead we put that and any other kitchen clean cloth/sponge and brush into the dishwasher which uses far more caustic cleaners and hotter temperatures. If you pre-rinse your crockery then there is no debris which can attach.

I'm a little curious about meat-free, dairy-free and egg-free kitchens who's inhabitants wash their hands after going to the toilet
