INFOGRAPHIC : Tech Germs – Remember To Wipe… (Your Keyboard)

Ads by Google

This infographic made me take a good long hard look at my own keyboard. Especially after I read that a keyboard has about 60 times more germs than a toilet seat. Excuse me while I go and disinfect my hands thoroughly several times as well as go out and buy a replacement keyboard and a new toilet seat.

OK I’m back. It seems the germs are everywhere and are running rampant around all our houses. I am definitely never touching another lightswitch again and as for the remote control….well I am going to start getting off my lazy butt in future and changing the channel manually! And 16% of cellphones had poop on them? Up to now, I thought I had heard it all. But that statistic is right up there with 90% of US banknotes having cocaine on them. Suddenly I’m not hungry anymore for my dinner.

Let us know what you think of the infographic, brought to us today by Do the stats sound right to you?  What does your keyboard look like?  Do you have the leftovers of dinner from two weeks ago hiding under the space bar? Or are you very OCD and rubber gloves when it comes to cleaning your keyboard?  Let us know in the comments.
