No Shortage of Germs at Home

hand-washingObjects in your home may not be as clean as they appear. In fact, germs that cause disease are found all over household items. Here are the items found to have the highest germ counts (from least to most dirty):

10. Cutting boards
9. Stove knobs
8. Kitchen counters
7. Pet toys
6. Bathroom faucet handles
5. Coffee makers
4. Pet bowls
3. Toothbrush holders
2. Kitchen sinks
1. Dish sponges and dishcloths

The kitchen is the biggest area of concern because of dirty crevices and the fact that many foods can hold highly contagious germs. But, bathrooms should still be paid attention to. Using over-the-counter cleaning products that contain bleach can be most effective and should be used multiple times per week.
