How Germy is Your Desk?

According to this infographic posted on, pretty darn germy and gross -- 100 x germier than most kitchen tables. The biggest contributor to the germiness -- eating at our desks. Only 1 in 5 of us takes an actual lunch break and only 1 in 5 of us cleans our desks before eating. Maybe we'd all benefit from treating our desks a little more like our kitchen table and wiping them down after lunch. 

Many thanks to Erin Mantz for sharing this with me. I'm going to grab some Lysol wipes right now.

And, if we are going to eat at our desks, we may as well eat something healthy. Check out these ideas from Deb Dixon.
