Three Things You Never Think to Clean, but Should:

You've heard how dirty your keyboard at work is, right? The average work desk has about 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. And that's really gross considering that 83% of Americans eat at their desks. Here are three more things you never think to clean, but probably should.

#1.) Your Phone. Your cell phone or your home phone can make you sick. Cell phones get covered in bacteria because we take them with us everywhere, and use them without washing our hands.  Home phones collect bacteria because usually, more than one person is using it. Work phones are a little safer if you're the only one using it.

#2.) Your Dishwasher. The hot water kills the bacteria INSIDE the dishwasher. But the edges of the DOOR are a breading ground for mold and mildew. And it happens on the rubber cushioning of your refrigerator door too.

#3.) Your Indoor Garbage Cans. Even with a bag, the inside of trash cans can accumulate germs and bacteria. So every few times you take out the trash, scrub the inside of the can too.
