I just wash it when I wash my hands in the bathroom. That way I do not have to put it down and suffer phone detachment anxiety.

What bothers me to no end, are people who put their baby sitting in a cart. I have seen babies put their mouth on the handles. No telling what they are ingesting. I would love to say something. but In this day and age, I don`t want to get my head shot off.

Los Angeles, Denver, it must be a western thing. Not in any Target I've been in on the east coast. Do you wipe everything you put in the cart that you'll be taking home or just the cart itself?

Just the cart handle. I like to live dangerously when it comes to the actual items. In reality, people aren't wrapping their hands around the shopping items the same way they do with a shopping cart handle. And yes, I guess it it more of a Western thing. I lived in Boston for about 25 years before moving to Denver a dozen years ago, and it wasn't something I was accustomed to in Boston.

False. I had mine checked, and it is only 5.8 times dirtier than my toilet seat. Beware of vague generalizations based on small sample sizes that don't catch the outliers.

The only time I turn into a germaphobe is during norovirus season.

Anybody wonder why we all don't all get sick all the time? Read about the immune system and how we keep it working.

I didn't use these wipes until I saw a bunch of baby poop on the shopping cart seat. Now I use them to clean the crap off, not necessarily the germs.
