'Dirty Money' fears are founded ...
Research has shown that money and credit cards can often contain some very unpleasant 'hidden extras'... including potentially harmful germs and even faecal matter !

"People may tell us they wash their hands but the research shows us different, and highlights just how easily transferable these pathogens - surviving on our money and cards."
