7 Day to Day Dirtiest Things
Countless people die because of bacterial infections each year. Although you can’t see them with your naked eye, that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. In fact, they’re on everything you touch and eat and some even live inside you. Read on to find out the 7 day to day dirtiest things.
7 | Door Knob
Even if technology nowadays has modern door knobs improve and designed as bacteria resistant, this doesn’t mean it’s 100% effective. Moreover, older door knobs are non-resistant and are twice as worse. Just a friendly reminder next time you are trying to escape a public bathroom.
6 | Fridge Handle
Always consider cleaning your refrigerator’s handle because they are often infested with the same bacteria that live on poultry and pork. Some of your family members usually takes a meat from the fridge and reopen it without washing their hands.
5 | Remote Control
Your remote control’s cleanliness at home often depends upon your hygiene and how well you clean it. The cracks and spaces in between the buttons are ideal for spores, microbes and other bacteria to hide. Studies have found semen, urine and SARS on public remotes like the ones used in hotels and hospitals.
4 | Toilet Seat
Even if the toilet isn’t the dirtiest thing you can come in contact with on a regular basis, statistics show that 295 bacteria surrounds it per square inch.
3 | Cellphones
Cellphones are way dirtier than toilet seats because they are generally warmer and unlike TV remote controls, they have more spots for bacteria and germs to hide in and later becomes their ultimate breeding grounds. They are the leading causes of skin infections and meningitis.

1 | Your Mouth
