Some Americans need to give their dishwashers a serious scrubbing. A new survey found that 20% of Americans never clean their dishwasher! 26% said they rarely cleaned theirs.

For those who don't clean their dishwashers, consider this; a 2019 microbiology experiment tested 30 household dishwashers and found 632 types of bacteria from 74 different bacterial series.

15% of Americans surveyed said they didn't clean their fridges, either, while 8% said they never cleaned their ovens. [EatThis]
