"We don't want to put it down. It goes into the bathroom with some people -- not a good idea," you really need to wipe it down." Dr. Sorana Segal-Maurer, an infectious disease specialist with New York Hospital-Queens
Suede, Leather & Patent Leather Is Harder To Clean
Purses made of suede, leathers and patent leather can't be easily cleaned to prevent bringing Covid-19 into our homes. You can lower your exposure to you and your family by ensuring you are wiping down your purse or tossing it in the washing machine.
Researchers with the hygiene and washroom services company swabbed handbags to find the dirtiest parts. Twenty percent of handbags swabbed had levels of bacteria-related contamination which could potentially cross-contaminate other surfaces -- and contained more germs than the average toilet flush, CBS New York reported.

Once these germs are on the bags, they can easily be transferred via hands onto other surfaces. Regular hand sanitization is essential to prevent the presence of bacteria in the first place and thorough cleaning of bags is recommended to prevent the build up of contamination." - Dr. Sorana Segal-Maurer, an infectious disease specialist with New York Hospital-Queens
Tips For Women
- Wipe down your purse with Lysol cleaners before getting into your car.
- Wipe your purse down before entering your home.
- Consider tossing your purse in the wash to clean both inside and out.
- Consider a crossbody bag or fannie pack
To prevent setting your purse down on high touch surfaces, consider wearing a fanny pack. This will prevent you from setting it down on counters or in grocery carts.
Consider A Crossbody Purse
Crossbody purses can be put on when you leave the home and taken off when you get home. Less need to set in shopping carts or put down. They keep your belongings right at your side and less contact with high touch surfaces.
All purses from OLovesM can be wiped down inside and out with Lysol or simply tossed in the wash.
