Flu-proof your home

 

Show winter colds the door by keeping a germ-free house with these tips: 

  • Keep an eye out for germ hot spots in the home.​ Germs love to linger on the most popular surfaces like the remote controls, phones, door handles and keys. Clean these daily to avoid spreading germs between family members. It is as simple as wiping them down with a disinfectant.
  • Make hand washing second nature.​ Remind your kids to wash their hands when they get home from school before they run rampant in the house. All those kids they played with are coming home with them. Wash hands in warm, soapy water when you get home and before you eat!
  • Humidify the home. ​ Believe it or not, flu viruses love cool, dry environments. Keeping the air in your home at a higher humidity level will not only help your chapped lips, but will help you stay healthy.
  • Clean house. ​ It’s probably obvious by now that germs love to live in less-than-clean environments. They love dirty countertops, dusty floors and messy bathrooms. By spending the time to tidy-up and clean these messy areas, you save yourself a week out of work because of the flu — or worse yet, because your kids have the flu.

Cleaning doesn’t have to be tradition

Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day: Arguably the greatest holidays of the year bringing people from all over the world together.

You may be having family or friends over you haven’t seen since last year because they either live far away or just because life itself get’s in the way. Regardless, you are probably experiencing a ray of emotions. First you start out being stressed, panicking about cleaning your house and buying supplies to cook. Then once all is said and done and they arrive, you will be excited to see them and those feeling of stress will suddenly disappear — until you must clean up.

Wouldn’t life be so much easier if you could host get-togethers and not have to worry about cleaning up after or before?

Even though you know your loved ones would (hopefully) not care if you have a messy home, you feel much better having them see a clean space.

So how can you make all of this happen without having to actually do the work?
