WebMD Reveals 6 Dirtiest Places in Your Home

E. Coli
Your home is your safe place. It's also the place where you get to kick back and relax. However, it also needs to be maintained and cleaned or else you may find yourself in a dirty unhealthy place. Health and medicine website WebMD has posted a story which goes over the 6 dirtiest, most germ ridden places in your home. Most of them make sense, but a few may surprise you.

The Kitchen Sink (and Dishwasher)
Wet food particles in your sink can form harmful bacteria and viruses including E. coli and salmonella. Your kitchen in general can become a breeding ground for sickness if not cleaned very regularly.

Your Toothbrush (The Bathroom)
Your mouth is full germs. When you're done brushing your teeth, your damp toothbrush is like a mad scientist's petri dish. If that's not bad enough, your toilet also spews all sorts of bacteria and viruses all over the bathroom. Including on your toothbrush.

Your Salt and Pepper Shaker (and condiments) 
Food particles combined with dirty hands make your seasonings a prime place for germs to grow. Other candidates include condiment bottles like salad dressing and ketchup.

Your TV Remote Control
Every one in the house touches this one. More than likely, they've also coughed, sneezed, and touched it right after going to the bathroom.

Your Computer Keyboard
This one could also include your workplace... your computer keyboard. Food, bodily fluids, skin flakes, and so much more make this commonly handled item a breeding ground for germs.

Your Bathtub
You clean your body here, but maybe you don't clean this place as much as you should. Bacteria such as staphylococcus is often found in bathroom tubs along with fecal matter and fungus. Studies have also shown that whirlpool tubs are among the worst when it comes to bad stuff growing in your bathing place.
