I was watching The Today Show this morning, and heard an interesting segment on shopping carts. There was a study done, and it turns out that shopping carts are more dirty than toilets. I guess when you think about it, that makes perfect sense. I mean, hundreds of people touch the handle a day. A butt load of kids sit in the seats, and some might slobber, spit up, poop, or pee on them. Then there are the groceries that actually go into the cart! What if the uncooked chicken has a hole in the packaging? All of that, and grocery carts are not washed regularly... if ever. Gross.
So I guess it wasn't to far fetched for someone to come up with this product:
A washing machine for shopping carts. How smart is that? It has a 5 minuet cycle and over 300 washes per gallon! I guess I will be wiping down my grocery cart handle from now on... at least until I see one of these here in town. :)
