Hidden Nasties

According to the Mythbusters TV show our computer keyboards are covered with nasty germs. If you have ever watched the show, and I admit I am a fan, you know that Mythbusters isn’t exatly science. But it is a close approximation. In fact if you follow the link and read the procedures in this case they did seem to do a pretty good anaylsis.

If, as Mythbusters claims, our home computer keyboards are nastier than our toilet seats what about the keyboards in your treatment rooms?

…the top five dirtiest surfaces.

  1. kitchen sponge (most dirty)
  2. money
  3. computer keyboard
  4. toilet seat
  5. light switch (least dirty)
