These days there are dispensers of hand sanitizer pretty much everywhere you turn—and for good reason. Germs lurk on surfaces you normally wouldn’t think twice about, including the five most germ-infested places outlined below. Note that some of these might just surprise you!
1. Your Desk
2. Your Kitchen Sponge
3. Your Cell Phone: Much like your desk, you cell phone is used frequently but rarely disinfected. Additionally, it’s often carried in the hand or stuck in a pocket, where it stays nice and warm—just what bacteria needs to flourish. A recent set of tests by Dr. Charles Gerba, professor of environmental microbiology at the University of Arizona in Tucson, showed cell phones frequently carry staph bacteria, which can cause everything from skin infections to meningitis! Give your cell a good wipe with a disinfecting cloth or get your hands on a nifty cell sanitizer
4. Your Makeup
5. Your Handbag
