I was in the market and this kid put her mouth on shopping cart bar. It kind of made me cringe. I go to the market all the time and I knew shopping carts were dirty, but I didn't know how dirty, til I saw this article.
Think about it, the carts rarely get washed (maybe hosed down now and then) and how many strangers a day touch the bar? In the cart people put raw meat, household cleaning chemicals, and don't even get me started on people who sneeze into their hands and then keep on pushing! But don't forget, moms put their babies in the seats too, and they have even found fecal matter - hello - leaky diapers...
So I bought this shopping cart cover from www.kozycoach.com. It's one of the more expensive ones, but it's padded (good for little ones) and has loops for toys. My kids needs his toys...constantly! It has a safety belt so it's secure, and the colors are too cute.
After reading that there is fecal matter in the carts - now I want a shopping cart cover for my poor little veggies too!!
