Germ Facts

The average office desk is home to 20,000 germs per square inch. It harbours 400 times more germs than the toilet, which gets cleaned and disinfected regularly. 

 The average desk harbors 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat. With more than 25,000 microbes per square inch, remember to clean your phone with antibacterial wipes at least once a day.

 Bathroom faucets can be more harmful to your health than a toilet seat, and a bathtub may have 100 times more bacteria than the trash can.

In one study, diarrhea-inducing E.coli was found on 10 percent of coffee mugs.

Between 7 and 42 percent of all paper money contained "revolting bacteria."

The dirtiest spots in the kitchen are dishcloths, cutting boards, sponges, and sink handles. Surprisingly, the floor is often cleaner than the sink!

 Germs can live for up to a month!

I'm going to wash my hands now ewwwwwwwwww!:)
