Working with hygiene and cleaning issues in order to research and analyze the causes that endanger consumers' health, the Hygiene Council has announced 10 dirty objects that pose a danger to health. With the aim of warning the public and consumers, the council has announced 10 objects that people often use, thanks to the work of "hygiene hunters," which was carried out in 2014. Described as "dirtier than a toilet," the products announced as "the dirty top 10" are as follows: the external surface of beverage cans, banisters of hospitals and public buildings, hand dryer machines, green vegetables soaked in water at fast food and çiğköfte stores, bus handrails, sports equipment in gyms where towels are not used, banknotes and coins, restaurant menu covers, light switches in common areas and towels and tools in beauty salons and hairdressers. "These products are used in almost every region of Turkey and may contain pathogenic microorganisms. Considering the study on these objects, we would like to warn people about them... These tools, machines or products might cause many diseases since they are not cleaned enough." Remarking that this list is only valid when hygiene rules are not properly implemented, council officials stated that they observed that hygiene hunters do not generally follow the hygiene rules of those products on the list. Officials emphasized that the aforementioned list is not valid when hygiene rules are followed. Being independent from any authorities and established in order to work on hygiene, cleaning and health issues related to hygiene, the Hygiene Council consists of food engineers, veterinary surgeons, lawyers, academics, people in the health sector and members of food and consumer associations.
