When it comes to dirtiest place of a house, the toilets earns the dubious distinction of being one. Of course the toilets are meant to be dirty right? That’s why TV anchors in white shirt and a cap come knocking at our doors begging to clean our toilet right?
Let me ask you a question: when was the last time you cleaned your keyboard? Yes, keyboard! You might wonder what keyboard has to do with dirt or toilet. Well there is a relation. Both are breeding ground for bacteria and other fucked up microbes.
But why keyboard of all places? Well there are number of places where bacteria breed: the kitchen sink, the famed toilet, even on door knobs! Keyboard and mobile keypads are the least suspected spots. Leftover food particle ensures that the bacteria gets a balanced diet in the kitchen. The poo-poo and pee-pee are just too much for microbes to resist. But why do they find our keyboards so interesting?
Many of us munch on snacks and food while operating lappies or PCs( operate here means surfing net and watching movies). The tit-bits get trapped easily on keyboard. Congratulations! You have just donated harmful microbes food and shelter. Since we hardly wash hands after using computer they end up in our body easily. Research has shown that keyboards may breed bacteria like E- Coli, which is responsible for diarrhea.
When it comes to offices, keyboards fare worse than the toilet when it comes to germ count! Imagine yourself working up your fingers on a shit filled piece of plastic buttons; nightmare! Further we don’t care to wash our hands.
So what should be done now? Yes, clean up your keyboard on a regular basis. Use a clean piece of cloth, a mild disinfectant or alcohol and wipe it out thoroughly. Always remember to wash hands after using one. Keep Calm and read my articles!
