Carts Carry More Than Your Groceries

With the flu vaccine in short supply this season, the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta is urging people to use common sense measures to help prevent the spread of the virus. Many parents don't realize that one of the most germ-infested surfaces a child comes in contact with is the shopping cart. In order to help combat this problem, Bilby Products LLC has introduced the soft and colorful Bilby Shopping Cart Liner. The all-fabric liner eliminates contact between children and the potentially infected surfaces by completely covering the basket area of the shopping cart.

Most carts are less sanitary than the average public bathroom, with germs from the cold and flu viruses routinely found on the carts in research testing. Babies are particularly at risk for infection as their immune systems are not fully developed and they put everything in their mouth, including the shopping cart.

Developed by a mom, who was concerned about the unsanitary conditions of most grocery carts, the Bilby Shopping Cartliner is machine washable, durable and easy to use. It slides on the cart in a matter of seconds, and also fits restaurant high chairs. “Every time my son put the handle of the cart in his mouth, I worried that someone had sneezed on it, or worse,” says Jennifer Sampson, President of Bilby Products LLC. With a retail price of $29.95, it is also cheaper than one visit to the doctor.

Available at retailers across the country, the Bilby Shopping Cartliner can also be ordered on-line at their websight or by calling toll free 888-882-7707.
