PREVENTING THE SPREAD OF GERMS DURING COLD AND FLU SEASON
With a new year comes a new flu season. With the impending flu season amidst this frigid cold, it can be a seemingly impossible task to keep your home clean and germ free.
It is important to keep not only your personal spaces clean, but any shared spaces around the home. But how do you do that effectively?
Here are some simple tips to ensure your home, and everyone in it, remains clean and healthy:
KEEP YOUR HANDS CLEAN
Make sure you wash your hands and keep them as squeaky clean as possible. Hands can transmit a lot of germs. This is especially important when you handle things that many people use, like a television remote. No one wants to get someone else’s germs when they simply wanted to watch last night’s hockey highlights.
When you wash your hands, be sure to wash them thoroughly with warm soapy water and scrub them good. It is also important to keep a bottle of that amazing smelling hand soap you got for Christmas, along with fresh towels, in the kitchen and bathrooms so people can always wash their hands. Not only will this help prevent the spread of germs, but you can’t complain when your hands have that fresh minty scent.
REGULARLY DISINFECT ANYTHING HANDLED BY PEOPLE
It is also important to consistently disinfect anything that multiple people handle. This applies to anything people use with their hands. Light switches, doorknobs, anything that people get their germy hands on should be regularly disinfected to help prevent the spread of germs this cold and flu season.
KEEP ANYTHING SHARED CLEAN
It is also important to ensure your bathrooms stay clean during the cold and flu season. Keep the sink taps sparkling clean, wash the cup that holds everyone’s toothbrushes, and ensure that your towels are always clean. You can do this by washing the towels in hot water.
