Kimberly Clark Germ Study Finds Germiest Spots
A Kimberly-Clark study has found ATMs, mailbox handles, parking meters and gas station pumps are top breeding grounds for harmful bacteria and viruses because they are rarely cleaned. When company hygienists swabbed hundreds of surfaces in six U.S. cities, they found viruses, like ones that cause the common cold and flu, all over gas pumps. They also found bacteria that causes staph infections, which can be spread person to person. The best defense? Keep hand sanitizer or wipes in your car or wash your hands if possible. And if you’re using that gas station bathroom, a Clipa handbag hanger can be keep your purse off the floor in nearly a dozen places.
