Winning the War on Germs
Well, it’s that time of year again. Flu season. The two words most dreaded by parents everywhere. The flu can single-handedly bring a family to its knees. It tends to start with one family member and then spread to all the rest. There are many ways to pick up the flue but also a few ways to prevent it. Here are some ideas.
Surface disinfectant wipes may be the ultimate weapon in the war against bacteria. They are safe to use in the home and also effective in the eradication of germs. Surface disinfectant wipes can be found in virtually any pharmacy or grocery store. They can be used on tables, counters, car interiors, and children’s toys. Teachers may also consider providing surface disinfectant wipes or disinfectant spray to their students and having them wipe down their desks each day to avoid transmission of germs.
Beyond surface disinfectant wipes, there are other basic ways to prevent the spread of germs are things that don’t cost any money. For instance, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water multiple times every day. Just get into the habit. Cover your mouth when you sneeze and then use hand disinfectant to rid your palms of your germs. Don’t leave used tissues laying around. It’s gross and a surefire way to get someone else ill.
