Odds are you have one in your kitchen right now.
Perhaps you purchased it recently, after the 2015 ban of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a former Teflon additive that’s been linked to cancer and birth defects (and that’s detectable in the blood of nearly all of Americans). Or maybe it’s the one you bought for your dorm in the ’90s and still hold onto for cooking eggs or pancakes.
Believe it or not, the filthiest, most germ-infected surface on earth isn’t a pig sty, restaurant dumpster or public gas-station toilet seat. It’s right inside your house, and everything you think you know about cleaning it is wrong.
