Your purse is dirtier than the average toilet seat. According to a study conducted in the United Kingdom, most women place their purses on the floor (like, public bathroom floors) when no hanging hooks are available. So say hello to fecal bacteria! And the inside of your bag isn’t much better, thanks to used tissues, dirty cash and pocket change, and well-handled receipts. So clean out your bag’s clutter on the regular and wipe down everything, including that bottle of hand cream. Yep, it’s super dirty, too. [Swirled]

Check out our other happy hour faves. [Swirled]

Recipe Of The Day: It’s Pi(e) Day — yay! — and a surprisingly simple pie recipe is the only way to celebrate.
