Default Testing for harmful bacteria/swabs.

Does anyone know where I can purchase those little swabs that look like cotton buds wherby I can test to see if there is any harmful bacteria around kitchen sinks, toilets, food preparation areas etc.
You run the swab over the surface then put it in a solution that changes colour depending how good/bad the surface area is for harmful bacteria.

Default testing for bacteria

You could contact your local public heath laboratory (usually connected with local hospital laboratory) or your gp if you're concerned re hygiene-

At the risk of being blase, would it not be better to swab the sink/toilet/food prep area with some bleach??
