From an ABC 20/20 report a few years ago, the 2 most feared parts of a public mall bathroom are the toilet seats and the door handles. Because people fear touching these so much, they’re actually the cleanest in the bathroom. The report revealed a test on the restroom in ABC News showing only 1,000 bacteria per square inch on the toilet seat vs. 2 million bacteria per square inch on the floor (I’m still not going to sit on that toilet seat or touch those handles!).
Thus MyMommyology’s holiday shopping tip is perfect:
So people, don’t bring your shopping bags into the washroom because you’ll end up putting them on the floor and transferring whatever they picked up into your car and onto your hall table at home.
