And you thought your bathroom was filled with germs.  Silly, silly you! Turns out your kitchen is just as bad. After reading up on the topgerm-ridden spots in the kitchen, I’m ready to arm myself with cleaning gloves and bleach and go to town.

The average kitchen has enough germs to turn your stomach. Literally. Refrigerator water dispensers were found to be the number-one grossest thing in the kitchen, thanks to levels of mold and bacteria experts called “concerning.”

Appliances and tools like blenders, spatulas and can openers, as well as refrigerator drawers and freezer ice makers, were found to have traces of E. coli, salmonella and listeria.  These bugs can cause diarrhea (oh fun), urinary tract infections, fever and even more serious illness in some people.
