The 5 Second Rule

I'm going to hold my hand up and say that on a few occasions I've adhered to the 5 second rule. I remember once buying an expensive donut and it falling out my hand, face down on the kitchen floor, an absolute tragedy! The 5 second rule came into force and 5 seconds later I'd wolfed it down! Hassle.com the company that connects busy people with trusted cleaners recently created this fun info graphic, The 5 Second Rule Breakdown which made me giggle a few times!
Do you agree with the 5 second rule or does it go straight in the bin once you've dropped it?

  1. Haha - this did make me laugh as I have this arguement with the kids quite often!

  2. Ha, I don't even follow the 5 second rule, I sometimes eat it 30 seconds after it's fallen!

  3. I don't follow the 5 second rule because my dog has a 3 second rule and she always gets there before 3 seconds is up haha x

  4. I love this! Abide by it unless it's in a puddle!
