Do you believe in the 5 second rule?
What Girls Said 5
Yes, but only at home. I trust my floors are clean enough to lick. Why? Because I do all the cleaning myself and know I sweep and mop every other day.
yes! but not if I drop it somewhere outside or really dirty.
No if my food falls down it's next house is the garbage not my stomach.
I never eat food that falls on the floor.

No. I pick stuff off the floor after more than 5 seconds. Scientifically it takes about 0.0005 seconds for food to get bacteria on it, so saying 5 seconds is some magic limit is pretty silly. Eat it. A bit of crap cleans the stomach, we say in Sweden.
Nope. It's been scientifically shown that transmission of bacteria and viruses is instantaneous. Sadly, there is no 5 second rule. I will on occasion, but it's a risk. Never from the floor though.
A bit of dirt does you no harm. I'm happy to leave it more than five seconds.
I never eat food that falls on the floor. It’s just gross. 🤢🤮
No. As soon as it hits the floor, bacteria are all over it.
it's a scientif ic fact, not something one chooses to believe in or not.
Nope. I'm all set
