Purses Have Bacterial growth, E. Coli, and Microbes Like Hepatitis and Mononucleosis

Swabs from randomly selected purses, sent to a reputable lab, showed evidence of bacterial growth, E. coli, microbes like hepatitis and mononucleosis, and other NASTY STUFF.


Yes, Snopes even confirmed this story —

And stop gloating, guys – men are NOT immune!

We ALL have briefcases, clutches, backpacks, laptop carriers, camera bags, baby bags, and other assorted carry-bags that we set down EVERYWHERE!

So back to the NASTY STUFF on our bags…

None of this should come as a shock when you think of where we tend to put our bags!  (No… I won’t go into detail — just recall where you typically go in a day… and where you place your bag!)

We put those bags on surfaces that we usually WALK!

(Yet we don’t put our shoes on our bed… or on our kitchen counter… or on our TABLE! — but we put our carry bags on those surfaces REGULARLY!!)

The good news?

There are things you can do to prevent this NASTY STUFF from becoming a health issue.

At the risk of stating the obvious, you COULD periodically wash your bags with antimicrobial, anti bacterial, or anti fungal solutions.

I know.  I know.

Some bags are simply not washable.

And who has that kind of time anyway???

So NOW what?

How about PREVENTIVE thinking!

Yeah.  We at Next Wave tend to like THE PREVENTIVE approach!
