To assist you in keeping your home germ-free this winter, we’ve outlined 10 easy ways to do so below.
1. Clean your upholstery
Take a vacuum to your pillows and furniture to suck up any germs on the surface.
2. Wash your guest towels
The bathroom is a prime target for germs, so wash your hand and bath towels in hot water weekly to kill any germs residing on them.
3. Cleanse uncommon surfaces
Use a disinfectant (preferably vinegar or Young Living’s Thieves Household Cleaner) on light switches, TV remotes, doorknobs, and refrigerator doors to kill off germs that can easily spread.
4. Replace or clean your washrags & sponges
Wash your sponges and cloths on hot in the washing machine to prevent the spread of germs. Be sure to add some disinfectant to make sure you really zap those nasties.
5. Clean or replace toothbrushes
Toothbrushes need to be replaced on a regular basis (roughly every two months), and cleaned on a regular basis to eliminate surface bacteria. Make sure yours are clean and dried prior to being put up.
6. Clean your laptop or desktop keyboard
Use a disinfectant to clean your keyboard as well as your mouse to prevent the transfer of germs from surface to surface.
7. Don’t forget about soap dispensers
Despite holding germ-fighting liquid, soap dispensers are constantly touched by dirty hands. To eliminate any germs on the surface, simply use a cloth with a germ-fighting cleanser and go over the surface.
8. Wash your bedding
Sheets and even mattresses need regular cleaning to maintain a fresh and germ-free surface. Vacuum your mattress and wash fabric according to the manufacturers instructions.
9. Don’t forget to clean your rubbish bin
Rubbish bins are fully of nastiness, so use a bit of cleaner inside with warm water to restore them to their former glory.
10. Keep hand sanitiser within reach
After you’ve cleaned your home, place hand sanitiser near the front door to prevent the spread of germs.
Enjoy your germ-free Winter!
