Most households have an x-second rule for food that falls on the floor. Science has done us the favor (not) of explaining how to tailor the criteria to define how long is too long based on a few factors. Floor type: did it fall on a hard floor or a carpeted germ hotel? Food type: was it a cracker or a juicy piece of fruit? Time down: Less is more, always. How long was it on the floor? Bacteria has a different shot clock that humans. They transport a lot like ticks, which is called questing. They lie ready to adhere to anything that brushes past them. With this is mind, sometimes a doggie isn’t the worst idea to keep your floors clean.
