    Hello Jello
    I don't drink out of soda cans anymore, haha. I don't get soda at all unless someone comes home with a small bottle of it from the store for me.

    Well, I've heard about the rat thing and everything but I imagine that at the factory, when the soda is canned and then plopped into a carton, there's not much time for anything to get on it. Think about it...the soda is sealed in the can shortly after the can is even made, and then it drops into a box and the box is sealed. Not many hands should touch the cans except for maybe where the carrying holes are, but that's normally the sides of the cans, not the top. Anyway, if I see something on it I'll wash it off in the sink but if not I'm not too worried about it.

    Seems to me that we've been drinking out of cans for years and no one has died (please don't try to prove me wrong, I'm sure it'll be easy) so I'm content with drinking straight from the can.

    Almost always. I also wash my socks twice, once normal and the second time inside out. Socks are like little bags and the inside collects stuff.

    But my friend will do it if there aren't no straws around.
    She claims it has something to do with rats or rat poison...

    I worked in a grocery store as a teen and we used cases of sodas for a lot of things....like; step ladders, work benches, stools and seats. I have rinsed my cans ever since.

    I very rarely drink anything out of a can but if I did I would absolutely rinse the top. Back in high school we did this science thing where we took swabs off the tops of cans and grew the bacteria so ever since then I hate drinking out of cans and will rinse them.

    But only to quiet the demons chanting in chorus in my head "cleanliness is godliness==cleanliness is godliness". It usually works.

    Or I drink my soda with a straw. I don't know if this is true or not... but I once heard that rats run across the top of the can, and if you drink it without a straw it can do something to your neck.

    I have wiped it off if I buy it single out of a case, unless there is visible gunk (like an exploded soda shared with the other cans) then I wash it off. Figure there are alot more germs in the air then in a heat treated aluminum can from a carton.
