"Kitchen towels won't necessarily make you sick", he said, "but they are a reservoir for these organisms that can sometimes be problematic". Humidity in the household increased the bacterial loads.
Multiple factors contribute to an increase in bacteria found on towels, including family size and the type of food consumed.
What were some of the factors affecting pathogen growth?
Nearly half the towels had bacteria growing on them - and unsurprisingly, towels used repeatedly and those that were damp were more likely to become microbe havens.
"We also found that diet, type of use and moist kitchen towels, could be very important in promoting the growth of potential pathogens responsible for food poisoning".
"Humid towels and multipurpose usage of kitchen towels should be discouraged", Dr. Biranjia-Hurdoyal said.
Specifically, the researchers found that towels used for a variety of tasks - such as wiping utensils, drying hands, holding hot utensils or cleaning surfaces - had more bacteria than towels used for one task. S. aureus is a bacteria found in the respiratory tract.
Of those, 49 tested positive for bacterial growth, with 36 per cent contaminated with E.coli, 36 per cent contaminated with Enterococcus spp and 14 per cent with Staphylococcus aureus. Specifically, S. aureus was more likely to be found on towels from larger families and those of lower socioeconomic status, while the intestinal bacteria were more likely to be found in families that ate meat.
Humid towels had higher chances of harboring coliforms than the dried ones. The presence of Escherichia coli was said to indicate a possible fecal contamination and lack of hygiene practices such as washing hands. While it's true that a new study did find that kitchen towels aren't exactly bastions of cleanliness, you don't necessarily need to forever banish them to the deepest, darkest pits of hell.
