Three reusable bags ...

... tucked neatly in my purse! This is the only way I remember my bags and boy have they saved me from using hundreds of plastic bags at the grocery store and even when I'm out clothes shopping.

This post isn't about the joys of using your bag but a reminder via Simple Organic about why you should wash your bag.

Some of the highlights:

  • use a separate bag for raw meats and poultry
  • wash every time if you can
  • dry in the sun to kill bacteria

  1. Thanks Shannon. I am guilty of placing the bags back in my car once I unload them. I really do need to clean them.
