Wash Reusable Bags
My friend recently told me reusable bags are a breeding ground for bacteria and even E. coli. I did a quick search and found this article that talks about how 50% of bags in a study contained traces of E. coli and salmonella, bacteria that can cause food poisoning in humans. I usually wash mine once a month but in cold water. I just finished washing mine in hot water and will do that weekly from now on. I also am no longer going to put meat in a reusable bag. I'll use a store paper bag for that.
