Handbag Hygiene 101

Handbags are a girls best friend and tend to go everywhere and anywhere with us. We often forget the health risk of having a handbag.

  1. Wipe it down regularly with sanitiser wipes
  2. When out and about refrain from placing your handbag on the floor rather place it on a able or chair
  3. Cleaning out the inside of your bag remembering to wipe down the inside as well as the items inside
  4. Wash the inner material with a detergent
  5. Use a bag organiser

With these 5 tips you will no longer be carrying around a health hazard!

    Oh God this article is talking to me😅😅. I try to be organised as much as I can but always find my bag full of receipts and toys of my baby😅. The following should always be in my bag. Earphones, powerbank, charger cable, sanitiser, wet wipes, lipstick, cardholder, a pen because now I cannot be sharing a pen with people due to COVID, pocket tissues. I know its a lot but I can’t leave my house without these😅
