Three things you should probably clean more often

According to scientists, you should wash your bed sheets at least once a week. And what about other things you use daily -- like your cell phone and coffee maker? You should probably be cleaning those more often, too.

Why you should clean your stuff more often...

Research shows that after just one night, your bed sheets can accumulate a horrifying amount of dead skin, bacteria, fungus, mites, and even feces. 

And think about how often you use your cell phone -- it can accumulate a lot of bacteria throughout the day. And  your coffee maker? Well, if you aren't cleaning it very often, it can also be a breeding ground for things you don't want in your morning cup of Joe.
