The start of the year also is an ideal time to embrace fresh starts. So why not take that approach to the office, too—specifically to your desk?

Not only can the span of a year build up clutter at your desk, but it may also bring along plenty of germs. In fact, one study found that desk surfaces average a whopping 100 times more bacteria than a kitchen table and 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. Now that’s scary.

These cleaning tips and organization tactics can help:

– First, purge.

Use this general rule of thumb: If you haven’t used something since the begin this year, it’s time to pitch it (or donate it). That means saying goodbye to the miscellaneous brochures and knickknacks you compiled from conferences throughout the year. Don’t worry, a less cluttered desk can actually lead to a more motivating and productive day.

– Next, clean.

Wipe down your workstation—computer screen, keyboard, and mouse included!—using a disinfecting handy wipe. Keep the container nearby so you can quickly clean future messes. And remember, the best way to avoid crumbs at your workstation is to avoid eating at your desk. You’ll keep your area clean while bonding with your coworkers and sneaking in some recharge time while you’re at it.

Developing a routine to keep the space clean will keep it looking its best and your productivity at a high level all year round. Most people find 5 Minutes at the end of every day to quickly clear their desk, manageable and helpful in setting a good tone for the following day.
