Top Hot Spots for Germs

8 of 11

The ATM


ATMs are frequently touched, but aren't frequently cleaned, which means the buttons on these machines house more germs than a public restroom doorknob. ATMs aren't the only culprit, either. Shopping carts, drinking fountains, and anything else used by the general public are all hot spots for germs to breed.

Try to get in the habit of carrying an alcohol-based sanitizer with you. This can be as effective as soap and water to rid your hands of any harmful germs you may have picked up during your daily activities.
