CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

You might think your kitchen is pretty clean. After all, you wipe the counter after you cook and you wash the dishes.

The study says that most people think the germiest place is the microwave keypad, but researchers found that the top germ spots were the refrigerator vegetable and meat drawers, the blender gaskets, can openers, and rubber spatulas. Refrigerator water and ice dispensers were also on the list of trouble.
