Safe tea first…

Scientists have discovered that office teabags can contain 17 times more germs than the average toilet seat.

In a survey sure to send everyone to the coffee jar, company Initial Washroom Hygiene claims the average bacterial reading of an office teabag was 3,785, compared with just 220 for a toilet seat.

And the survey showed that 80 per cent of people working in an office wouldn’t think to wash their hands before making drinks for colleagues.

All of a sudden the Thermos flask in the van seems a lot more appealing.
