RE: How sanitary is an unwashed soda can lid?
I think as with most things in life,it's a matter of common sense and moderation.
If you see a can with an obviously contaminated top,you are not going to put it to your mouth.Anything like dried piss or shit should be visibly obvious.Moreover,if you adopt the spit and wipe method on what appears to be a clean can,you will probably not significantly reduce the microbial count and in fact may actually add to it by way of your dirty shirt tail or whatever.As for a cursory wipe with a grubby finger,almost certainly you will bring more bugs to the party.To make an effective difference,you would need to swab the top with alcohol,medical style.
