You think it’s the bathroom don’t you? I mean, come on, when is the last time you actually sang all of Happy Birthday To You? The soap dispenser is empty and you usually end up drying your hands on your jeans.
But in comparison, the bathroom is a LOT cleaner than the rest of the shared spaces at your workplace.
The five most germ infested places in the office are:
Water Fountain Faucets. Have you ever seen anyone actually clean this thing? Yeah, kind of makes you wanna rethink that drink.
The fridge. The door handle to be exact. Never mind that Sarah’s potato salad is growing a garden in the back of that baby, just opening the fridge in the office will get you covered in grime. Ew.
Keyboards. Ever munch on some Cheetos while replying all to the memo? It’s not just the crumbs and coffee spills that cause problems, it’s all those dirty little fingers tapping like a drum. The mouse needs a cleaning too.
The Microwave. No, not talking about the macaroni still plastered to the inside roof of this thing – like the fridge, it’s the handle that is disgusting.
And the dirtiest space at the workplace?
Break room faucet handles. If your plan was to bypass the fountain for the faucet, you’ll need a new one. It’s not just the hand caress that turns them on and off all day long, but they’re often wiped with a sponge just crawling with those microscopic critters that end up getting transferred to your newly rinsed coffee mug.
Kind of makes you wanna eat your lunch in the bathroom. The one space in the office that gets loads and loads of disinfectant love.
