Does the thought of eating off a public toilet seat gross you out? Well, you may be surprised to find out that there are more harmful germs in an item that most people use every day then a public toilet seat. The answer: Your computer keyboard and mouse (or a track pad on a laptop).
We all have heard the old saying, to keep from getting sick, wash your hands. What do our dirty little fingers touch all day long? Our keyboards and mouse. What makes it worse is that many people eat at their computers (guilty!!!). The food residue from out fingers gets transferred to the keyboard and this allows harmful bacteria to grow.
I keep a small spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol near my computer. Once-a-week I try to remember to lightly spray and wipe it down. This takes care of killing those little buggers.
