This tip might be a no-brainer, but it took me a while before I had an "ah ha!" moment.
Most stores have "cart wipes" in the front of the store, but they are located behind the carts. So, most people grab a cart and then wipe it down. Doesn't make much sense, does it? You've already made contact with any icky germs hangin' out on your cart handle.
My mommy machine secret: Walk past the carts, grab a wipe, then wipe your cart handle down before you touch it.
Am I the only one who has made this mistake?
If so, I feel like a complete idiot for sharing this discovery.
If not, I'm happy I saved you from that toddler's booger on the underside of your cart handle.
