Fall is in full swing now, and that means kids are back to school. Unfortunately, classrooms are breeding grounds for germs and your children will inevitably be exposed to them. Here are some tips on how to keep germs away during school season.
Disinfecting is key.
Where are your main points of contact in your home? These are areas that are frequently touched by multiple people each day. They could include bathroom doorknobs, fridge handles, stair railing, toilet handles, and light switches. Clean these surfaces every day with disinfectants, then wipe to remove any leftover residue. Waiting to disinfect until someone is sick is not the best way to keep germs at bay. The best method is to stay on top of the disinfecting daily.
Keep cleaning supplies clean.
Your sponges, cleaning rags, mops, and other cleaning items need to be washed regularly, especially if someone is sick in the home. Not keeping your cleaning tools clean will inevitably spread more germs and cause more harm than good.
Don’t share blankets or towels.
Keep your blankets, hand towels, and bath towels to yourself, and wash them regularly with hot water. This is especially important if someone in the home has come down with a virus, as sharing these can easily spread the germs around.
