Subsequently, one may also ask, can germs live in playdough?
In short, germs live outside the body anywhere from a few seconds to 48 hours. Flus tend to live longer on surfaces than colds. I would like to reassure you that colds and flus live longer on hard surfaces than they do on porous surfaces such as playdoh. I hope they are not putting the playdoh in their mouth.
