Run your dishwasher on the highest temperature with a cup of vinegar on the top shelf. Afterwards, sprinkle some baking soda on the bottom and run it again. Now, your dishwasher is immaculately clean!

3. Mattress

Pour some vodka into an empty spray bottle, spritz lightly across your mattress and then leave it to air-dry. The alcohol content of the vodka will precisely kill the odor causing bacteria.

4. Sponge

Sanitize your sponge by microwaving it while it’s wet for 2 minutes to kill 99% of its germs. You may also opt to run it in a dishwasher.
