Tea towels cause food poisoning and the larger the family the higher the RISK

Have you ever looked at your tea towel and thought “I’ll just leave it one more day and then wash”?

You may want to change that habit as it has been reported that using your tea towel multiple times BETWEEN washing can cause food poisoning. Ahhhh!

The Sun reported that new research has been found that bugs can lay dormant on the towels that aren’t regularly washed and dryed like E.coli and staph bacteria.

Experts from the University of Mauritius examined 100 tea towels after a months use in a family home.
