Microbes are everywhere! On your nose, on your face and everything you touch. You can also find microbes deep under the ground, while others prefer to live in boiling water! Microbes are everywhere. Fortunately, they can do many amazing things for you. In fact, our whole life relies on microbes, so we are happy and lucky to have them around.
