The Most Common Dirtiest Things You'll Touch Today!

In this post, I will share the top 5 possible dirtiest things that you may be touching today. These may not be encountered by some, but I believe, the most will, don't you think?

Unwashed fruits and veggies which are being handled and squeezed by people before you go to the grocery store. Take note as well, that mists in the grocery store, which keeps fresh produce from wilting will provide a breeding ground for germs!
A good sanitary wash for your fruits and veggies would be a mix of 2 tablespoons of distilled white vinegar with a pint of water. Spritz mix on fruits and veggies, then let it soak in a few minutes and rinse it off.

Soap Dispenser. True, that dispenser has an antibacterial soap in it which can help you protect from the dirtiest parts of the restroom, - the door, toilet handle and stall latch which can be possibly infected with fecal matter.
But watch out for that soap button of the soap dispenser! It may just be the germiest thing you can touch too. So, don't skip a full 20-second hand wash afterward (sing Happy Birthday twice). Then use a paper towel to open the door on your way out.

Elevator buttons. It has been touched by people with cough, colds, or any other ones with infected hands. Use your knuckle a tissue or your sleeve to push the button instead. Then use antibacterial gel (at least a full teaspoon amount) or wash your hands before touching your face or eating lunch.

ATM keyboards. Use your nondominant hand when using touch will less likely to absentmindedly touch your face with it. But always be sure to clean your hands as soon as you can.

Microwave Touch Pads at the office. Shared microwave gets overlooked which can end up encrusted and dirty. Washing it with soap and water aren't enough, so wash it with bleach to remove all the food particle-based germs and body oils.
