Today we are talking all about cold hard cash…and how germy it really is.
We're going to get down to the nitty-gritty here. Paper money can reportedly carry more germs than a household toilet. And bills are a house party for nasty microbes. Viruses and bacteria can live on most surfaces for about 48 hours, but paper money can reportedly transport a live flu virus for up to 17 days. And surprise, fecal matter has been found on our money.
The change in your wallet has been passed around by hundreds and thousands of people transferring bacteria and germs. There isn’t a lot that you can do besides washing your hands and your spare change to rid of the germs. But then you still have your cash and cards to worry about.
PhoneSoap, believe it or not, is not just for phones. It will literally disinfect anything you can fit inside without causing damage. Yes, even your credit cards. It’s as simple as tossing your money in the unit, which isn’t saying much since we toss our money at stuff all day.
