The Germiest Place in Your Bathroom Isn’t Your Toilet

Have you hovered over a toilet seat in a public restroom, desperate not to touch it?

There is a good chance that you have. Americans are so grossed out by the thought of touching things in public bathrooms that 64% of people who use them flush the toilet with their feet, according to a 2013 survey, and 60% use paper towels to open bathroom doors. Several studies over the years have revealed that scary-sounding bacteria and viruses cover the surfaces of bathrooms.

Even drying your hands can spread bacteria

Several studies indicate that bacteria spread when using automatic hand dryers. A study published in 2018 found that hot-air hand dryers collect bacteria from the air and then spread those germs onto freshly washed hands, and a 2015 study concluded that jet-air dryers spread 60 times more bacteria than warm dryers and 1,300 times more than paper towels.
