As you know, the bathroom is filled with germs and bacteria. It’s a fact of life you learn young. But apparently your bathroom isn’t as dirty as other rooms in your life.According to a new study, not only is your phone at the office dirtier than the toilet there but EVERYTHING at the office is dirtier than the toilet. That’s right everything!

The reason behind it makes sense. Does anybody ever clean or disinfects the office phone? Researchers also found that coffee pots, sink faucets, refrigerator handles and microwave handles in the office break room are also literally crawling with germs. On average, these things have at least four times the bacteria levels of the average toilet seat.

But the real mystery is the bathroom at your office safer than at home? The world will never know.
