One of my favorite things about warm weather is wearing flip flops! I have a pair in almost every color! So I was shocked today when I read an article on MSN about the germs Flip Flops can pick up and if you aren't careful can make you extremely ill!
"TODAY, with the help of the University of Miami emergency mobile flip flop lab, tested some footwear and found that there were more than 18,000 bacteria on just one pair of flip-flops. Even more shocking than the number of germs were the types represented- bacteria from fecal matter, skin and respiratory germs. One pair of 6-year-old flip-flops had germs that cause yeast infections and diaper rash."
