now that's ridiculous. you might prefer how clean it looks when cleaned
under brighter light, but you're not going to get sick. in the avg
australian excessively clean, sterilised house you're far more likely to
get sick from an under-exercised immune system attacking your own body
than you are from catching some bug from a slightly dirty kitchen.
people today are paranoid about even minimal levels of dirt - due, no
doubt, to decades worth of advertising instilling a sense of fear and
loathing about dirt and bacteria...way out of all proportion to the
actual risk. so people poison their homes with toxic chemicals.

it. The intent is not to tell the truth but to satisfy the questioner.
