From the time you wake up until the time you go to sleep, you encounter a lot of germs. Many places in your kitchen, bathroom, office, as well as items you use every day, can carry bacterium like salmonella and listeria. Find out where these germs are hiding so you can arm yourself with the knowledge and the disinfectant to fight them off.
While it’s a no-brainer that places where people use the bathroom are loaded in the bacteria department, that knowledge is mostly associated with the toilet. However, the inside lock on a bathroom stall should be what you’re worried about. Every time the toilet flushes, toilet water and excess fecal matter can spray all over the stall — especially on the lock. Plus, people touch the lock to get out of the stall before washing their hands. Make sure to thoroughly wash your hands before leaving the bathroom to avoid taking any bacteria with you.
