Need A Hand?
While guests can bring great company into your home, they could also bring germs they encountered during the day. As the door handle is one of the first surfaces they touch, it can act as a gateway for germs to latch onto people who touch it!
- TIP: Regularly Clean door handles with antibacterial wipes.
As you dig into a hearty family dinner, be aware that germs could be lingering on your table surface. Even a dirty hand placed on the table could result in germs spreading.
- TIP: Make sure everyone washes their hands before meal times and disinfect the table before and after every meal.
The Issue with Tissues
Tissues can help prevent germs from becoming airborne. But if tissues aren’t disposed of correctly they can transfer germs on to other items in your house - including you!
- TIP: Immediately toss used tissues in the trash and wash your hands.
Play time between young children can be a prime opportunity for germs to spread around the classroom. This could result in them bringing more than just their homework home!
- TIP: Make hand washing a habit whenever your children come home.
Inviting guests over for dinner is more popular in winter months as everyone tries to avoid the cold and bring the warmth of family and friends into their homes. Unfortunately, the germs they could bring with them can linger in your home much longer than your guests!
- TIP: Disinfect the food preparation area before and after every meal.
