2. The Paper Towel Barrier
Researchers from the University of Florida say that if you believe the toilet is the dirtiest area of your bathroom—think again! Germ samples taken from public restrooms show that door handles, faucets, and soap dispensers in bathrooms contain the mother load of bacteria.
According to researchers, the contamination occurs each time a washroom visitor neglects to wash their hands thoroughly. Each time germy hands grab the soap dispenser, faucet, and door handle, they leave behind a trail of germs and bacteria. So use paper towel as a barrier and wash your hands thoroughly before exiting the washroom so you don’t take germs with you.
