I saw a link to this story posted in the forums the other day and nearly did a post, but instead spent some time cleaning and disinfecting my computer work areas, keyboards, and mice. I hadn't done so for a while, and man, the prospects are disgusting:
A desk is capable of supporting 10 million microbes and the average office contains 20,961 microbes per square inch, according to research.Time to clean the desk?
The key offenders are telephones, which harbour up to 25,127 microbes per square inch, keyboards 3,295 and computer mice 1,676.
By contrast, the average toilet seat contains 49 microbes per square inch, the survey showed.
