Restaurants are apparently really, really filthy. Seats are the germiest surface in a restaurant, followed closely by menus and lemon wedges, according to an undercover investigation by ABC News.
What’s so gross about lemon wedges, you ask?
Many restaurant and bar workers grab lemons with their bare hands, reaching in again and again without gloves or tongs. If they do not wash their hands thoroughly after using the bathroom, the germs spread.
Before you begin your Thanksgiving cooking and cleaning, consider swapping out your kitchen sponge. Why? For starters, it’s about 200,000x germier than your toilet seat.
Dr. Chuck Gerba, professor of microbiology at the University of Arizona, found that there are about 10 million bacteria per square inch on a sponge. In comparison, the average toilet seat only holds 50 bacteria per square inch, his studies found.

Humping cats, eating puke, and attacking neighbors are just a few ways dogs lash out when you’re not giving them attention. But now there is a new way to get payback: Dogshaming.
