You might not be surprised to hear that the technology we use every day is less than sanitary, but it's much worse than you think. According to a new study by CBT nuggets that exposes the germs in our technology, your laptop keyboard is 20,000 times dirtier than a toilet seat.
The study swabbed office items and recorded how much bacteria was lurking in there, bacteria was measured in colony-forming units (CFU). The dirtiest of all was your office ID pass (4,620,000 CFU per square inch) which had 243 times more bacteria than a dog's chew toy. Seriously. Computer keyboards were next (3,543,000 CFU) then your mobile phone (1,600,082 CFU) and computer mouse (1,370,068 CFU).
To compare, the average toilet seat only has 172 CFU per square inch – and money, only has on average a mere five CFU per square inch.
