These Are The Germiest Public Places
This is the time of year that I feel a little squeamish when it comes to spreading germs, especially since we're inside a lot more during winter. And if you are wondering what the definition of a 'germaphobe' is, it's 'a person with an extreme fear of germs and an obsession with cleanliness'. Not exactly me, but I still get a little nervous about getting infected with a cold or flu virus.
That being said, I do carry a travel size can of Lysol when I'm on the road, and yes, I actually use it. The folks at the Weather Channel have a list of the germiest public places, so I wanted to pass it along to you. And lets be honest, warn you, as well. Now excuse me while I go wash my hands.
- Grocery Store Cart Handles
- Table Surfaces and Condiments in Restaurants
- Public Restrooms (duh)
- Gas Pump Handles
- Children's Playgrounds / Sandboxes
- Office Desktop Computer. More germs than a public toilet, and women's are worse than men's!
- Remote Control
- Cutting Boards
- Kitchen Sink
- Cell Phones
- Electronic Stores. Lot's of touching going on here!
