    Default Great Handbag Care Product: Lovin My Bags Antibacterial Leather Cleaner

    Great Handbag Care Product: Lovin My Bags Antibacterial Leather Cleaner




    The other day, I came across this interesting article over at Health Desk. The article was about the bottoms of our handbags and how they can threaten our health. Yep, turns out our handbags are very dirty... dirtier than we could probably ever imagine. Now I am not one of those people that sits my handbag on the floor next to the toilet in a public restroom, but I have seen many women that do. Yuck! I get queasy just thinking about it. However, I have been known to set my bag down on a chair in a restaurant (or, if a chair wasn’t available, the floor of a restaurant). Well, according to this article, nearly every handbag selected for the study tested high in some sort of bacteria. The types of bacteria they found included salmonella, e. coli, pseudomonas, and staphylococcus. The researchers said that lifestyle did play a role, with people who frequented night-clubs being the dirtiest. Apparently there are a lot of gross things like vomit that a bag could unwittingly come into contact with when inside a nightclub.

    So what’s a girl to do? No matter how careful we thing we are being, there is no way of knowing what our handbag is coming in contact with. Yep, for all you know some lady changed her kid’s diaper on the waiting room couch! I guess whatever you do, don’t place your handbag on your kitchen counter when you get home from a long day of shopping!

    Plus, experts say it’s a good idea to wipe down your handbag on a regular basis. But why on Earth would we want to do that? After all, water is public enemy number one when it comes to us handbag fanatics!

    The solution? Lovin My Bags Antibacterial Leather Lotion! It’s a non-darkening, pH-balanced leather cleaner with the added benefit of a germ fighting anti-microbial ingredient!

    ...types of bacteria they found included salmonella, e. coli, pseudomonas, and staphylococcus...

    omg, this is crazy. i never put my bags on the bathroom floor (usually hooks on the door -- if not i put toilet seat covers down ), but like you, if at a restaurant and a chair wasn’t available, I may set it on the floor. (same at the hair salon).. gosh, I cant believe I never thought about germs and bacteria.

    > thanks for the awareness and posting

    Yes and the worst part is, that bacteria that they found doesn't necessarily get picked up from a bathroom floor. It can be anywhere! ::shudder::
