Let's face it - the bathroom is a bevy of bacteria. Germs and bacteria such as streptococcus, E. coli, hepatitis A, and common colds thrive in this moldy, damp atmosphere. It's gross. You'd think the toilet seat would be public enemy number one when it comes to germs and contamination, but actually, you'd be wrong. This list of common everyday objects features all kinds of things that are actually dirtier than your toilet, and are covered in all kinds of nasty and gross germs.

Not only are there other objects in your bathroom itself that have more cooties than your porcelain throne, but there are tons of household items and every day tools that carry more germs than a toilet seat. From ATM and elevator buttons to kitchen sponges and faucet handles, there are germs lurking everywhere in your home, office, and most frequented public places!

So, which of these germ-ridden objects surprised you the most? Vote up the nastiest objects that you had no idea were covered in bacteria. Then go wash your hands, replace your pillows, and get rid of the biofilm in your shower. It's just as gross as it sounds.
