You may already have your home’s sanitation plan up and running, but if not, here are some easy tips to help keep your home spic and span during cold and flu season.
Clean Common Touch Points Often!
- Some of the most commonly touched places in your home may be ones that aren’t on your cleaning list. Make sure door handles, stair railings, light switches, faucet handles, and drawer pulls are being cleaned at least as often as your tables and countertops.
- Sharing doesn’t always mean caring. Make sure everyone in the household is using their own cups and utensils for eating and drinking. Also, make sure no one’s toothbrushes are touching to prevent the spread of germs.
Wash Overlooked Items
- Purses, backpacks, shoes, and other items that make frequent trips outside your home should be washed or sanitized to ensure they aren’t harboring germs, viruses, or bacteria. Other overlooked items that could use some sanitizing include your phone, tablet, keyboard, remotes, and other electronic devices. Just remember to use an electronic safe cleaning pad to wipe down those surfaces to avoid damaging your devices.
