According to the article, some of the germiest places your kids will encounter include:

• The playground: The playground is a breeding ground for every kind of illness imaginable because every child puts their hands, clean or dirty, all over everything.

• Public restrooms: The changing tables in public restrooms are rarely wiped down with antibacterial, unless you do it yourself.
