Germs alert: TV remote control is the dirtiest item in your house

Control where you sneeze!

Keeping It Kleen released a new infographic on how dirty our tech gadgets around the house can be. There’s some genuinely alarming stuff in there, like the keyboard you’re using right now probably has 60 times more germs than your toilet seat! Or how’s about your beloved smartphone, which if you use in the loo, will most likely have some remains of poop.

No need to get paranoid, though, there are still many easy ways to remain germ free. Washing your hands regularly is obviously one easy solution, but you will also have to use additional things such as sanitary wipes, microfiber cloths, etc. for cleaning things.


From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
