Grocery stores have tried very hard to sanitize everything from carts to anything you might touch in the time you reach the checkout, but here’s a list of the things you should avoid touching during the pandemic.
The list of germiest things in a grocery store…
4) the baby seat in the shopping cart
3) tie….the freezer door handle and the front end of the shopping cart (opposite of the handle)
2) the shopping basket handle
#1 is the pin pad at the check stand
Even though you might think it’s the shopping cart handle, it was actually the cleanest thing tested in stores due to efforts by stores and providing wipes so you can also clean it yourself.
The survey was done in 24 grocery stores where highly touched surfaces were swabbed to see if all the cleaning and disinfecting was working in high traffic areas.
