Do you ever think about how dirty your fellow grocery goers’ hands are?

Well, now you are.

I consider myself a pretty serious hand washer. Mainly because I stock pile Christmas-scented Bath and Body Works hand soaps so all year-round my hands smell like a gingerbread latte, but no matter the motive, they’re clean.

It hit me as I was reaching for some jalapenos the other day. How many grubby mitts have touched these petite peppers? I halted in the aisle and began to watch my peers. I wouldn’t say I ~judged~ anyone necessarily, I’m sure they’re all perfectly nice, but I did find myself questioning their hygiene habits. Then, questioning the entire grocery establishment! Where are these avocados sourced from? Is this spinach ~really~ washed and ready to use? Can I even trust this place?

Would like to grow all of my own produce to control these variables, but alas dirt freaks me out.
