For those times when your fingers are less than fresh, stash some antibacterial hand gel to wipe them clean. I keep Bath and Body Works' handy 3-ounce bottles ($4) in my apartment, in North's car seat, and in my purse. Because I like to bring North on adventures around the city, there are times when I don't want my pet-touching and cleaning up after hands to also be my cupcake eating hands, for example. After trips to the park or when strangers are petting your dog at cafés, it's nice to keep everyone's hands germ-free!
