You should wash your hands after touching these 10 harmless things

6. Phone screen

We can pick up our phone any time of the day. Go on – admit it – even when we go to the toilet for a number one or two. The small screen carries a lot of dirt. Therefore, wash your hands regularly and polish your phone screen with special cleaning wipes.

7. Kitchen

There are more bacteria in the kitchen than you would think. The primary reason? Raw meat! Do you regularly cook meat? Then chances are you handle the meat when you cut it on a cutting board before cooking it. And while doing this, you touch things like pans, knives, dish towels and the counter. Bacteria loves moisture, so don’t let it spread. Wash those hands extra well!

8. Pens

The average pen in an office contains about as much bacteria as a toilet seat. Did you wash your hands after using a colleague’s pen? We certainly do.

9. Soap dispensers

Do you wash your hands with soap? Then you are doing it well. However, think about the pump on the soap dispenser you use. Refillable soap dispensers in particular are a source of bacteria. It is therefore not a bad idea to regularly clean your soap dispenser.

10. Airport

An airport can be compared to any other form of public transport. Thousands of people walk around an airport every day, effectively spreading bacteria and viruses. Have you put your hand luggage in a tray and have you checked in? Then wash your hands well. The trays in which other people’s things are placed can contain a lot of bacteria.
