Am I A Dirty Pig: How Clean Should My Home Be?

Love it or loathe it, cleaning our homes is something we all have to do, or at the very least outsource to a professional, but how clean should the place where we've been spending a lot more time recently be?

For many people, the pandemic has sparked new enthusiasm for disinfectant products and sanitisers, but is it possible that we could be doing damage to our health by being too squeaky clean?

The Quicky speaks to a 'cleanfluencer' and an expert in infection control to find out the best ways to keep you and your family safe, and your home looking great, without going overboard.
