Is your handbag making you Sick!

Handbag Hook are Available in Nairobi from 1000 shillings.

Women rarely go anywhere without a handbag, which means that if a woman enters a place full of germs, so does her bag. That could mean she ends up carrying microbes around all day long that could make her sick. Then taking those germs home, and exposing the whole family to potential illness.

Have you ever noticed ladies who sit their handbags on public restroom floors - then go directly to their dining tables and set their handbag on the table?
You may think twice about where you put your handbag.

Laboratory tests found Pseudomonas, Stafflococcus Aruis, Salmonella & E-Coli on women's purses. In one sampling, four or five purses tested positive for Salmonella.

Women carry handbags everywhere. From the office to public restrooms to the floor of their car. Most women won't be caught without their handbags, but did you ever stop to think about where your handbag goes during the day?

"I put my handbag in grocery shopping carts, on the floor of bathroom stalls while changing a nappy," says one woman "and of course in my home which should be clean."

Most women told us they didn't stop to think about what was on the bottom of their handbag. Most said at home they usually set their handbags on top of kitchen tables and counters where food is prepared.

Experts say you should think of your handbag the same way you would a pair of shoes...
"If you think about putting a pair of shoes onto your countertops, that's the same thing you're doing when you put your handbag on the countertops"

Your handbag has gone where individuals before you have sneezed, coughed, spat, urinated, emptied bowels, etc! Do you really want to bring that home with you?

After testing the average woman's handbag, it turns out handbags are so surprisingly dirty, even the microbiologist who tested them was shocked. Nearly all of the handbags tested were not only high in bacteria, but high in harmful kinds of bacteria.

Pseudomonas can cause eye infections, staphylococcus aurous can cause serious skin infections, and salmonella and e-coli found on the handbags could make people very sick. In one sampling, four of five handbags tested positive for salmonella, and that's not the worst of it. "There is fecal contamination on the handbags," says the microbiologist.

Leather or vinyl handbags tended to be cleaner than cloth handbags, and lifestyle seemed to play a role. People with kids tended to have dirtier handbags than those without, with one exception. The handbag of one single woman who frequented nightclubs had one of the worst contaminations of all. "Some type of feces, or possibly vomit" says the microbiologist.

The conclusion to this story is that your handbag won't kill you, but it does have the potential to make you & your family very sick.
