New Jersey is Top 10 on This Dirty, Filthy and Disgusting List
Anytime we here in New Jersey finish in the top twenty percent or top ten of any national list, study or survey it’s a good thing. It gives me a great feeling of pride when we’re leading the pack in any category or competition.
This one not only gives me a feeling of pride, but I also get a feeling of relief. This is not a good list to be on the bottom of. That would be embarrassing and, quite frankly, inexplicable.
GlassDoctor set out to learn which states in America are the most hygienic and which ones are the least hygienic.
Let’s start with what can be called the most disgusting state when it comes to hygiene. Nebraska received the lowest hygiene score out of all at 34.6 out of 100. Those who live in Nebraska change their sheets an average of once a month. They also shower less than 6 times a week. It should be noted that they have an excuse for both because the state is urged to conserve water during their drought conditions.
Rhode Island didn’t fare much better with 37.6 out of 100. Ohio scored 38.7, and Maryland and North Carolina at 41.9 to round out the bottom five.
Let’s check out some of the top ten to see where New Jersey landed. We scored 61 out of 100 to land at the eighth spot when it comes to the most hygienic.
The top five from fifth to first were Texas (62.1 out of 100), Mississippi (64.1 out of 100), Florida (77.1 out of 100), Louisiana (80.1 out of 100), and Georgia (81.9 out of 100).
Here’s the most disturbing fun (or not so fun) fact that the survey uncovered. “On average, Americans wash their hands seventy-nine percent of the time after going number one, and ninety percent of the time after going number two.”
I’m sure you’ll be thinking about that the next time you shake someone else’s hand, I know I will!
