According to the CDC, 80% of all infections are spread by hand to hand contact with contaminated surfaces. What are those contaminated surfaces? You can probably guess a few, but there may be a few of these that you did not think of.
1. Phones. According to a report issued by Verizon Wireless 9 out of every 10 people use their phone in the bathroom! To make matters worse, it is not a surface we often think about cleaning regularly - if ever! Phones were even reported to be a contributing factor with the norovirus outbreak in 2007.
2. Computer keyboards. Or as we like to call it, toilet seat at your fingertips. It’s true! Your keyboard is one of those items that is dirtier than a toilet seat. Keyboards can be up to 200 times dirtier than your toilet seat. This can be especially hazardous if you let those lovely little hands work on them from time to time.
3. Bathrooms. Not surprisingly, this is about the most germ riddled place in your home. E. coli and toxins related to fecal matter have been found on every surface in the bathroom, including door handles and water faucets. Even cleaning with bleach only provides moments of protection only to be contaminated once again when someone touches it.
