Did you know that less than 12% of people wash their hands properly after using the toilet… that puts you at risk!

According to a study by the University of Arizona, a desk is capable of supporting 10 million microbes and the average office contains 20,961 microbes per square inch. The key offenders are telephones, which harbour up to 25,127 microbes per square inch, keyboards (3,295) and computer mice (1,676). By contrast, the average toilet seat contains 49 microbes per square inch.
