Would you ever eat a breath mint that you dropped on a toilet seat? How about using mascara or lip gloss that had been dangled over the bowl while being flushed?

As putrefying as that sounds, most of us are doing pretty much just that every time we dip into our purses.

Eek!  How often do you wipe down your handbag?

That's gross! I'm going to get a disinfectant wipe out right now to clean mine. I only wipe it out on occasion, how disgusting!

Oh, good thing I use Vera Bradley bags then--I can wash them! I don't really use the bathroom when I'm out. And I never, ever put my bag on the floor. :/

Gross. Purse hooks are your friend. I was given one for my birthday about a year ago, and it's come in pretty handy.

Ewww... how enlightening... More reason to rush to the grocery and buy some hand sanitizer
