Which is dirtier, your kitchen sink or your bathroom?

Posted January 17th, 2013 @ 6:27am

Because flu season is raging across the country, many people are paying more attention to germs than ever before.

While bathrooms get most of the attention from the public, health officials say you’d be better off keeping your kitchen sink clean as it has 500,000 bacteria per square inch in the drain alone.

Other things that are spreading big time germs include loads of wet laundry, public drinking fountains, shopping cart handles, ATM buttons and your bathtub.

To protect your family from illness, wash your hands early and often – even after bath time.
