Ok, this is the sort of article which makes me steaming mad (and since I'm in that sort of mood today....):
Household BACTERIA paranoia
Seriously, I am NOT going to catch meningitis from my phone. And as for the suggestion to wash my clothes in bleach....!?! I don't even keep bleach in the house, never use it.
When will people learn that a reasonable amount of dirt builds up immunity? all this constant cleaning and disinfecting is unhealthy.
I will continue to pick up the dropped knife from the floor, pick off the stray dog hairs and carry on eating. And I will be fine.
