Nelson Laboratories recently conducted tests on women’s handbags. Almost all handbags examined contained high amounts of dangerous bacteria including salmonella, E. coli. Keep these 5 things in mind to minimize exposure*:
- Use hooks to hang your purse in a restroom.
- Place your purse on the back of your chair in a restaurant or use a purse table hanger.
- Place a plastic vegetable bag from the produce department under your bag in the shopping cart.
- To sanitize your bags, periodically wipe down or wash the interior, exterior, and straps or handles.
