Eco friendly is germ friendly too. Oh goodie.
So...when was the last time you washed your reusable grocery bags? if you're like most of us... um, never. Hopefully this will change that.
In a recent study... 90% of shoppers admitting to never washing them. And of those surveryed all but ONE bag had high levels of bacteria in the bags. ...Which touches your food. It gets even worse... 12% of those bags tested positive for E Coli. Yum.
Good news is... you can keep them bacteria free by washing them in your washing machine once a week. Use warm soapy water... and enjoy being germ free.
