Little kids and babies are messy, but just how dirty are they? Well the results are in, and we don’t want to freak you out and turn you into a germaphobe or anything BUT you might be surprised at just what items your kids are exposed to on the daily that are sporting the most germs.
Study dishes up the dirt
If you’re a little bit OCD when it comes to cleaning then you’ll be stoked with ASecureLife who did some swab tests on ten of the most common items found in the homes of children aged from newborn to four years old. They were trying to find out which things that kids touched were the worst germ culprits (haven’t we all wondered this?!).
Well, wonder no more because here are all the results ranked from most to least germy. And guess which sex and age group was the worst? You betcha, it was the boys and the 3-4 year-olds – turns out babies aren’t so dirty after all!
That’s right, your kid’s pram or stroller has taken out the number one spot for being a germ infested playground. The reason for this is that most people store prams in the garage which is humid and full of dust, bugs and exhaust fumes – the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, yeast and mould. Eww! Quick get those antibacterial wipes ready!
