Just How Dirty is Your Purse
Just How Dirty is Your Purse

Ladies, when was the last time you cleaned your purse? A new study finds that you may be carrying around a lot more in your purse than just lipstick. Researchers found that one in five purses had sufficient bacteria to pose a risk to human health, and that the dirtiest item found inside the average purse were bottles of hand moisturizer, which were found to house more bacteria than an average toilet seat! Eck! Lipstick and mascara containers were also found to contain high levels of bacteria. Researchers suggest wiping down purses with antibacterial wipes or gel to prevent cross-contamination.
