    I typically use the dishwasher, and always on high temp, but you can also add a small amount of bleach to you dishwater if hand washing.

    I've also heard that you shouldn't towel dry dishes because it can spread bacteria from one dish to another. Also be sure to wipe off phones, door handles, light switches, keyboards, etc. One of the offices that I worked in, half the agents got the flu because of a shared keyboard and phone. I took sanitary wipes and left them at the desk to help stop the spread.

    I agree. We had a big flu outbreak once, and after that every desk had the wipes. Clean off the phones and keyboards before using someone else's, and use another one to clean your hands while you're at it. Door knobs are another big one.

    When I first moved to Manhattan and took subways everywhere I couldn't believe how people nonchalantly would hold the handrails all the way down and up. I can't even imagine all the bacteria on those surfaces and doors. Well, they say the hand is the filthiest human body part, and that's saying something. That's also why I stopped cultivating long painted nails, although I only ever had small projections and just got a French manicure. My pediatrician told me once not to do it because there's tons of bacteria under there, and it's not good when you're handling a newborn, or feeding him etc.

    There was some segment on a news show about the bottom of women's handbags too. Now I never put mine anywhere near the kitchen counters.

    Remember the "Soup Nazi"? :) My kids used to call me the "Clean Nazi". :) From the time they were toddlers, the mantra was always: Shoes off, wash your hands. I have to say, they're good about it, at least at my house. I don't have to grit my teeth and bear it because I don't want to be accused of still trying to tell them what to do. :)
