Six Things You Think Are Filthy That Really Aren’t

Some of the things you think are just full of germs and completely filthy really are not all that filthy.

According to Yahoo Shine, here are six things that are really not as bad as you thought they were:

  1. Coins.  Coins are made of metal, but copper, nickel, and silver don’t support germ life, they poison it.  Germs actually can not live on coins.
  2. Toilets.  Scientists say there is 200 times more fecal matter on cutting boards than on toilets.  They say it’s because people are more likely to keep the toilet clean.
  3. Dog Slobber.  Human saliva is far worse than dogs.  Dog slobber actually has antibacterial stuff in it.
  4. Doorknobs.  People get more worried about germs from doorknobs in public, especially the ones in the restroom. But the knobs on the way in are way worse than the ones on the way out.
  5. Trash cans.  If you line your trash can with plastic and keep it dry, its not all that dirty.  Germs need moisture to survive.
  6. Dirt.  Unless there is a lot of poop in it, the dirt in your backyard is perfectly safe.

So there are six things that are not quite as germ filled and filthy as you once thought.
