67% of office workers have admitted to coming into the office while sick. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cleaning with soap and water removes dirt and most germs, however, using a disinfectant cleaner kills germs giving even better protection. The average desk harbors 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. On average, workplace absenteeism due to personal illness annually costs businesses in the U.S. $230 per person. To prevent the spread of germs wash your hands with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds. A helpful tip is to hum "Happy Birthday" to yourself twice. Vaccination, according to experts, it's the best way to prevent getting the flu. Over 35% of office workers clean their inbox at least once a day.
