When your out and about and have to use restroom, do you hang your purse on the hook or

quickly place on the floor because you have to go so bad? I watched Dr. Oz awhile ago and he said that's the worst place for germs is the bottom of your purse!!! EWWWWWW

  • I hang it or hold it. I never put it on the floor. the bathroom floor is the dirtiest place in the world and breeds lots of germs.

    Everytime a toilet flushes, it sprays fecal matter so what do you think is on the floor?

  • I always hang my purse.

  • Hook or hold! NEVER the floor. Have you looked at public bathroom floors? I've NEVER put my purse on a bathroom floor. And I don't need overpaid-made-by-Oprah doctors to tell me how bad it is!!!!

  • Always the hook!! I've seen women put their babies on the floor, nothing underneath them, to change their diaper!!! Unbelievable!!

  • I either put it on the hook, or hold it on my shoulder/in my lap while I squat and pee, lol. I will no put it on the floor, especially in hospitals! I can't imagine the germs on the floor there! I forgot once and rubbed sanitizer all over the bottom of my purse. :)

  • If there are two hooks, I always use the one beneath. I heard years ago that opportunists will reach over a door and try grabbing a purse off the top hook.

    Never the floor unless there is absolutely nowhere else to put it.
