Here’s an “Ooooh Ick”—Your Coffee Mug At Work Is A Germ-Maker!!!
We all know that bathroom door handles and kitchen sponges are covered in germs, but a new study has found that the coffee mug on your desk is also a germ machine. Me? When I do have a little cup of coffee at the Cool 98.7 Breakfast Table, it's in a disposable cup.....and now I am sooooooooo thankful that is the case, now Linea on the other hand....she drinks her coffee out of her same mug most every morning....
Researchers suggest that when you’re drinking a mug of coffee at the office, make sure not to nurse the cup for longer than an hour or so.
The germs in your cup are multiplying like crazy, especially if you’re washing it with sponges or scrub brushes in the break room.
Your best bet is to take your mug home daily to be washed in the dishwasher. (UPI)
