Where has your purse been? The floor? On a table? At a checkout counter? In a bathroom stall? Tossed in a shopping cart? On the seat of the car?
Once you get home, where do you place that purse? On your counter? The floor by the door? The Kitchen table? Chair in the family room?
That small habitual act brings with it ALL that dirt, and germs and yuckiness from every place you’ve been and deposits them in your home. PLEASE, keep dirty purses, briefcases and bags away from places you eat and prepare food.
