8 Everyday Items Dirtier Than Your Toilet

Toilets have always been thought to be the dirtiest place in our entire homes, but new evidence would suggest that is actually false. Supposedly, there are a lot of items within our homes, offices, and everyday locations that are far worse for catching bacteria and germs. Now, we wouldn’t suggest you eat off the toilet or hang around longer than you truly need to, but you’re probably safe when it comes to catching any form of a sickness. Here are ten things dirtier than your toilet.

8. Ice

Ice is absolutely wonderful on a hot summer day in a cold drink, but when you get it from a fast food restaurant, over 70 percent of the ice served has had bacteria greater than that found in toilet water.

7. Restroom Floors
All floors are quite dirty, but a public restroom floor has around 2 million bacteria per square inch. The average toilet has no more than 50 per square inch.

6. Office Desk
The average office desk has around 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat or the water within your toilet. That means you’re more likely to get sick by going to work than you are to visit the bathroom.

5. Cellphones
Cellphones, an item most people use daily, has 10 times more bacteria on them than the average toilet seat. Unfortunately, a cellphone is also one item we tend to put to our faces regularly.

4. Showerheads
Water coming out of a shower head should clean it, right? Wrong, these are actually warm, dark areas for bacteria to thrive and breed every time you use it. That means you’re pouring the bacteria over your body.

3. Handbag
A woman’s handbag has been known to contain a cellphone, money, and plenty of other everyday items within. All of said items are quite nasty and carry a lot of bacteria on them, which means they move to the handbag itself.

2. Pillow
Your pillow is a haven for dead skin cells, dust mites, fungal spores, pollen, and other secretions from the body. These stick to the pillow and grow quickly.

1. Kitchen Sponges
A kitchen sponge is easily one of the most dirty items in your household, with over 10 million bacteria per square inch. That means the sponge is a quarter million times dirtier than the seat of your toilet.
