There is something about a clean house, it does wonders for the psyche.
Importance of Home Sanitation
The overall purposes of sanitation are to provide a healthy living environment for everyone, to protect the natural resources (such as surface water, groundwater, soil), and to provide safety, security and dignity for people when they defecate or urinate. Sanitation is important for all, helping to maintain health and increase life-spans. However, it is especially important for children. Around the world, over 800 children under age five die every day from preventable diarrhea-related diseases caused by lack of access to water, sanitation and hygiene.
The economic benefits of improved sanitation include lower health system costs, fewer days lost at work or at school through illness or through caring for an ill relative, and convenience time savings.
SANITATION AND KITCHEN
Good sanitation is one of the most important priorities in a home kitchen. A clean kitchen reduces harmful bacteria. Most food-related illnesses are the result of unsanitary food handling practices. Having just one case of food poisoning linked to your poor kitchen is enough to destroy your health.
