A Germaphobe's Greatest Nightmare

Those who know me well know that I am a germaphobe, which is why I couldn't pass up the chance to share eight of the germiest places, as reported by Healing Lifestyles & Spas in 8 Germiest Places:

1. Soap Dispensers

2. Bathroom Door Handles

3. Restaurant Menus

4. Condiment Dispensers

5. Grocery Carts

6. Airplane Bathrooms

7. Doctor's Offices

8. Lemon Wedges

I must say, the only item on the list to really surprise me was the lemon wedges. However, this list certainly got me thinking of other places germs lurk. Hydrotherapy areas always come to my mind. Spas certainly have their work cut out for them in keeping both public and private areas germ-free. What are some of the ways you keep your spa sanitized without introducing toxic cleaning chemicals to the mix?
