Shopping cart handles are dirty, bacteria ridden devices; evidenced by “anti-bacterial wipes” near store entrances
MSNBC, FOX 13, and the TODAY SHOW have all reported: - "50% of all Shopping carts have E.Coli on them."; "There is more bacteria on a shopping cart handle than a public restroom toilet seat."; "Fecal matter, salmonella, and staph are found on over 44% of all shopping carts."
Additionally, a major anti-bacterial wipes manufacturer states right on their packaging, “To disinfect hard, non-porous surfaces, wipe surface to be disinfected. Use enough wipes for treated surface to remain visibly wet for 4 minutes. Let surface dry.”
You simply push the cart over the handle and secure it in place with straps. Any bacteria on the shopping cart handle are inside, which you can throw in the washer with the rest of your laundry at home, making it ready for your next shopping trip.
