8 Germ Hotspots in your Home and Office
We are always hearing about germs and bacteria, of using soap, sanitiser, and spraying things into the air and onto our possessions to get rid of microscopic germs and bacteria.
No matter how diligent you are there are always places germs are hiding and multiplying. Be sure to add these areas to your cleaning list every day, week, and month to help lessen the germs around your home or office.
Here is a list of the 8 most common areas we think are a haven for bacteria and should be wiped or washed regularly with hospital strength disinfectant.
- DOOR KNOBS
- LIGHT SWITCHES
- TV CONTROLS
- HANDLES – ESPECIALLY KITCHEN
- TAPS - KITCHEN / BATHROOMS
- TOILET SEATS
- KITCHEN CLOTH / SPONGE
If you really think about what your hands go through every day and what they touch, I think you might start sanitising them more often.
Even if you were to just look at the 10 minutes leading into lunch where you work - and we can see how many items appear on our list inside of 10 minutes:
You go to the toilet (I won’t mention the toilet seat), you then flush the toilet without washing your hands – just like many people have done before you without washing their hands, you then open the door knob or latch – just like many people have done before you without washing their hands, you then switch the light off – just like many people have done before you without washing their hands, you then turn the tap on – just like many people have done before you without washing their hands, you then pump the soap – just like many people have done before you without washing your hands and then you wash your hands so they are nice and clean and germ free, leaving behind you a path of germs and bacteria that seems to be neglected on cleaning day. You then decide to have lunch, you know your hands are clean so you just go into the fridge to get your sandwich but 5 mins before you J. decides to have lunch and unlike you, he doesn’t wash his hands after he goes to the toilet so he’s just left germs all over the fridge handles that you’ve just touched with your clean hands and are now eating your sandwich.
It goes on and on... and if you don’t want to wear gloves all day every day then you just need to be aware these areas should be cleaned more regularly and keep some hand sanitiser where its easily accessible like on your desk, in the kitchen, in the car, in the bathroom, in your handbag...
