Toilet seat covers are not thaaat bad

Filed under: Links — rakhesh @ 1:51 pm

A University of Arizona microbiology team tested a dozen office surfaces including the bathroom. The scientists found that phone receivers had 25,000 bacteria per square inch, while toilet seats had only 49 bacteria per square inch. § (via Orange)

I’ve always been fussy about toilet seats myself. But for me, it hasn’t  been much about hygiene per se. It just gives me a mental satisfaction to know the toilet seat is clean and wiped and hence not ewww-ey. :) And its for similar reasons that I keep washing my hands whenever possible — I just like them smelling neat and nice. :)
