Mental Floss Cleans Up a Series of Common Misconceptions About Germs and Hygiene

In a recent episode of the Mental Floss series Misconceptions, host Elliott Morgan cleans up a series of common misconceptions about germs and hygiene. Morgan shares a 2013 study by Michigan State University that says ten percent of people don’t wash their hands at all after using a public restroom, and also shares the more frightening fact that even more people are washing their hands incorrectly. To combat this, the episode includes a hand washing demonstration by Morgan.
