BACTERIA IS LURKING IN YOUR GYM BAG
A study by hygiene services provider Initial Washroom Hygiene has revealed that over a third of gym bags are infested with coliform bacteria. The study found leather bags to be the worst for germs, as the spongy texture provides the perfect environment for the bacteria to thrive, compared to canvas and nylon bags. Research also found that 64% of women’s bags were overrun with dangerous bacteria, compared to 61% of men’s bags. As 80% of all infections are passed on by our hands, the risks involved with touching and holding sweaty gym bags is huge – keep your gym bag clean!
