Having a baby in the middle of cold and flu season can be a little unsettling. We're already doing a little extra this year to prevent the spread of germs around our house. As much as I love almost every aspect of Emmie going to preschool, the sickness she inevitably carries home is definitely not one of those. Plus, we live in our house...it is not always pristine, just like most family homes out there. There's no way around bringing in and spreading common cold and flu viruses just by living our everyday lives.
Luckily, with a little bit of insight (and a few cleaning supplies), you can do your part to ward off those seasonal cold and flu germs! I've listed 20 of the most germ-ridden places in your house below...a few of these you might not think to clean, but it's so important that they are regularly disinfected to keep your family safe!
- Faucet Handles
- Remote Control
- Garbage Can Lid
- Oven Knobs
- Light Switches
- Toilet Lids & Handles
- Washing Machine
- Car Keys
- Toilet Roll Holder
- Office Supplies (Pens, Pencils, Scissors)
- Phone Receiver
- Entrance Floors (including door mats)
- Laundry Baskets
- Steering Wheel
- Countertop Storage Lids
- Kitchen Counters
