A new health study has found that your kitchen sink may be dirtier than most bathrooms. With flu season raging across the country, many people are paying more attention to germs than ever before. Bathrooms usually get most of the attention from the public but health officials are saying you would be better off by keeping your kitchen sink clean because it has 500,000 bacteria per square inch in the drain alone. Other big spreaders of germs included, drinking fountains, ATM buttons and shopping cart handles. While there is no way to avoid coming into contact with germs altogether, it is smart to wash your hands regularly. (That's just common sense)
