WARNING!!!! ush: I just read the worst article online, I'm sorry, but I had to share.......... A study was performed on women's purses which found one in four purses (tested at a local mall) showed the presence of E Coli. The Health Report also showed where women place their purses: public rest-rooms (on the floor beside the toilet), kitchen counters , kitchen tables, on tables & chairs in restaurants, et cetera. The horror: germs and food. I NEVER put my bags on the floor! Where do you place your bag in a public restroom? (I hang it on the coat hook) In a restaurant? (in an empty chair) Where do you place your bag when your shopping in a store that has carts, like a grocery store? And where do you keep the bag your using when your home?
