Taking preventative steps to eliminate bacteria is very important this season.
These are 4 things we sometimes take for granted and overlook, as it pertains to where bacteria is found. Take a look below and take the proper steps to keep your surroundings disinfected… which may help keep you and your family from getting sick this season!
#1. Door Knobs
Door knobs are a hotspot for germs and viruses.
It’s so common to open a door, without thinking about how many people touch door knobs. Just think about it, how many people go in and out of a gas station, resturant, restrooms, clothing store, your place of employment. Yeah, are you thinking what I am thinking, “yuck!” Ok well, let’s not stop there, another item we take for granted and most of us simply can’t go without.
#2 Smartphone device
Can you remember when was the last time, you cleaned your smart phone device? Some studies have found that individuals type, click and swipe over 2,600 times a day. So this means your smartphone is a breeding ground for bacteria. Cleaning your smart phone device is worth taking the time out to sanitize it. I personal clean my smart phone device with a Clorox wipe. That’s just me, before you sanitize your smart phone device, check your manufacturers instructions on the proper way to clean it.
#3 Remote Control
Well, if you have a tv, there is a remote near. Guess what, I will be the first to say I AM GULITY !
Yes, I have been guilty of being one of the many people who eats while watching T.V. and in doing that, it comes with pressing remote control keys. Well guess what, your fingers are potentially transferring germs onto the food you eat as well as the remote control. This gives bacteria a field day! Here is a solution to prevent becoming vulnerable to sickness. You can do this by simply keeping Clorox wipes close by and wiping the remote control on a regular basis.
#4 Steering Wheel
Lastly, if you drive any type of vehicle and you are not, I repeat, you are not wiping your steering wheel, this will make you reconsider. You are potentially opening yourself up to about 700 types of bacteria. It’s so habit forming to just jump in the car and drive without thinking twice. Now that you are aware of the potential bacteria, you can do your do diligence with the proper ways to sanitize .
The two main things that I keep on hand with me to Eliminate Bacteria: hand sanitizers and Clorox wipes.
Until next time can I get you to say three times SANITIZE, SANITIZE, SANITIZE
