806 Health Tip: Bring Hand Sanitizer When You’re Grocery Shopping
They do a great job at the grocery store to keep things clean. I mean I know Market Street United does. That is where I do the majority of my shopping. I see them wiping stuff down all the time.
In this day and age that is very important. Just know that it wouldn't hurt to keep some hand sanitizer with you anyway. There are just some areas that will be full of germs anyway because I mean there are a lot of people shopping in the store.
Here are some areas you should just know that you may want to wipe down yourself for hand sanitize after touching. You can never be too safe.
I know they wipe down those credit card pin pads down a lot. I mean they even started covering the number pad with plastic so that they don't ruin the electronics with their constant wipe downs. This is the hardest to keep clean anyway so wash up after you pay.
We know the stores are doing a great job wiping down the shopping carts. I love this and hope they continue way past the covid issue. Do they wash down the shopping baskets as often too? Maybe so but maybe not. So if you grab one you may grab a wipe too and clean it yourself, just to be on the safe side.
I think of this often and maybe it's because I am a germ freak anyway. How about those handles to the freezer doors. You know you grab for some frozen veggies or a frozen pizza. Do they get wiped down as much? Maybe not so again use the hand sanitizer as you are leaving the freezer section. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
We know that the shopping cart handles get wiped down. How about the rest of the cart? Maybe not as much as we would hope. So if you are someone who grabs the cart anywhere other than the handle be prepared to clean up as well. It's just smarter right now.
I know the stores are doing a great job at keeping us safe. I applaud them for that. It has just gotten a little tougher here in 2020.
