Look for Germy Hot Spots
The flu is very easily transmitted through touching, so it is important to sanitize surfaces that are often touched or may have had prolonged exposure to dirt, germs and viruses. These are called “points of contact.” Think of how many items you touch in a single day and how many others touch that same object. For example, door knobs, light switches, keyboards, soap pumps, desks, countertops, phones, railings, and children’s toys all are breading grounds for the pesky flu virus. In order to keep these items clean, make a list of the 10 most commonly touched surfaces in your home and sanitize them daily. In addition, give immediate attention to any surface that is visibly dirty or has been through extra human contact.
