A messy desk certainly says a lot about a person but sometimes you just can’t help it when you’re sitting there on an average 40 hours a week.

To some people, a messy desk looks harmless, just a few pieces of paper piled up chaotically and a few empty food packaging scattered about but we hate to horrify you, the average desk is harbouring more germs than you might think.

Check out our infographic on all the facts and figures of how disgusting your office desk actually is…

Thu January 28 2016
The worst part of a tidy work area, especially if you share it, is someone always comes along and messes it up! I always keep my area clean. But as soon as someone sees a nice, clean, opens space, they have to fill it!! It`s so annoying!
Thu January 28 2016
Try as much as I can before I leave to tidy up but I work with a lot of paper work & have to process corrections for people every day concerning vehicles.

I hate being a swine too, but sometimes you just do not have a choice to make your life better in the office. I am referring to the times when you are a temp employee / possibly future perm stay. The employers do not provide you with more post-its, file accordions, folders, other filing shelves/cabinets/supplies. And you just have to stack the papers on top of each other (sideways), next to each stock with a piece of paper on top to remember what's there. Some of the stacks even go on the floor as there is no other way to organize. And hey, imagine using your tongue to moisten the finger and go through the papers in search of something and the stock is the one from the floor :-P Yuck? Yeah! No man would want to be around you no matter how attractive you may look. You are a swine for life! lol :-(((

We have a clear desk policy at work with only the files relating to the work we are doing being allowed. However we nearly always eat lunch at our desk. It's scary to think how many germs are lurking.

I walk with a cane and wipes are great to keep the hand grip clean. I keep a baggy of several wipes in my purse and can use them where ever I go. You would be surprised how much dirt and grim comes off . I use antiseptic wipes to kill germs too, especially going shopping and to the doctor's office. Door handles and shopping carts have been proven to transfer a lot of germs and I do not want to transfer them to my cane handle where I am touching them all the time. I have found that I do not get as many colds as I use to before using the wipes this way.
Tue May 6 2014
