However, the safest place to have it is still in the bathroom because there, it is at a safe distance away from the food preparation. Clothes are normally infested with germs because they make first contact with the dirt as you go about the day's hassle. The dirt would have otherwise got you infected. This is why placing the hamper at a safe distance from food will prevent unnecessary infections.
