Playground Equipment Harbors More Germs than Port-o-Potties

November 22, 2005

Sixty-four percent of the public mistakenly believes that a public restroom doorknob has more germs than an ATM, according to a telephone survey of 1000 people by Gojo Industries, Akron, OH. Also, only 9% of survey respondents correctly identified playground equipment as more germ-packed than port-o-potties, picnic tables, shopping cart handles and escalator handles. Most were also not aware that office desks, computer keyboards and elevator buttons carry more germs than office toilet seats. Executives added that 80% of infections are spread through hand contact.
