Is your bag clean ladies?

I know that is a strange title but its a serious question!  This is the season where people are always ill and you gotta try really hard not to get smited with a random bug!

'But your bag?!'  I hear you ask!   Yes!!  Think about where you put your bag...  You sit it down in the office toilet, sit it down on the train, you might put it on the floor once you arrive at work...  Think about how many bugs it could pick up in a day...  Or a week...  Or over a few months!

Did you know your keyboard at work / at home normally has more germs on it than the average toilet seat?!  Yes, true.  And disgusting.  So think about how manky your bag might be.

I know this is a little a little OCD of me but I give my bag a wipe down every so often with an antibacterial wipe, using these or something similar:


I empty my bad and if there is any crumbs or debris, I pour it out then wipe the inside.  I then get a fresh wipe and give the outside a good rub down.  Not all bags can be washed, so I think this is a good alternative to washing.

Does anyone else do this?!  Or am I completely mental?  Some of my friends think I am a bit mental when it comes to cleaning things....

  3. I always give my bag a clean out every couple of weeks to get rid of those receipts and wrappers at the bottom of my bag. I'm buying myself some antibacterial wipes tomorrow.

  6. You are perfectly sane sweetie :) I do this too... it is really gross to think that the keyboard generally has more germs on it than a toilet seat :O My goodness gracious :O
    I never ever put my bag on the floor... when I am at home I hang it on a door or something like that and when I am at work I always put it on a chair or whatever I find :)
    hugs
