We think about spring as time for "deep" cleaning -- and it's also the time for a wardrobe change.
Our winter handbags are swapped out for lighter purses but many women don't realize just how germy our handbags are. We put food in them, toss in used tissues and carry our cell phone which has been in and out of our hands constantly, even in the bathroom -- yuck!!
Our purses can turn into a bottomless pit with bacteria other ridden items like: money, makeup, skincare, hair products and clothes. Your hands touch about 300 surfaces every 30 minutes, which means there is a lot of bacteria that is traveling with you.
Research finds that your handbag may be contaminated with a lot of bacteria, even MORE than the average toilet seat, according to a new study from Initial Washroom Hygiene, a hygiene and washroom services company in the U.K.
