Have you ever given much thought to your cubicle at work? If you’re like most people, the answer is probably “no.” You go to work, do your thing, and then come home.
Well, that desk you sit at and eat at every day is probably one of the germiest, dirtiest things you come into contact with on a regular basis. Think I’m kidding? According to Discovery Health, the average desk contains about 400 times more germs than a toilet seat. And because desktops, keyboards, and phones are so rarely cleaned, germs and bacteria thrive and spread easily (living, on average, three days). When someone shows up to work with a cold or the flu, it’s easy to see how it can make the rounds to everyone in the office.
Here are 2 ways to sanitize your cubicle and keep your working area clean, healthy and germ-free.
1. Kill Those Germs With Disinfecting Wipes
2. Wash Your Hands
Taking simple steps like wiping down surfaces daily, putting in air purifying plants, and washing your hands can go a long way towards keeping you healthy and productive.
