Breaking! Shopping Carts Are Covered In Germs

The fact that shopping carts are covered in germs and all kinds of disgusting microscopic organisms should come as a surprise to absolutely no one. Last week, reported that shopping carts are covered in fecal matter and E. coli, which is no doubt scary and gross, but I’m honestly surprised that’s all.

So because a half-hearted wipe down with a wipe probably isn’t enough to wipe away all that bacteria, we suggest you invest in one of these Itzy Ritzy shopping cart covers before your next trip to the grocery store. They’re not cheap, but knowing your baby isn’t putting someone else’s fecal matter in his/her mouth makes it well worth it.

Itzy Ritzy Shopping Cart Cover in Avocado ($68)

Itzy Ritzy Shopping Cart Cover in Bamboo ($68)

Itzy Ritzy Shopping Cart Cover in Licorice ($68)
