Right now, the U.S. is smack-dab in the middle of flu season. If you’ve ever had the flu before, you know that it’s much more than a nasty cold. It’s a week-long stay at Hotel Horrible – splitting headaches, raging fevers and an upset stomach….you get the picture. Bottom line: it’s not something you want to experience.
There are a number of ways to prevent germs from spreading around your house, but one of the most effective (and often forgotten) strategies is consistent door-handle disinfecting! Since these areas come in contact with so many hands during the day – door handles become little germ factories pretty quickly.
So, protect yourself and your family this flu season by disinfecting your doors a few times a week. Any knob or handle (including your fridge!) is fair game.
Tip: Even when it’s not flu season, it’s worth paying extra attention to the handles in your kitchen to help prevent the spread of foodborne illnesses.
If you want to make your own non-toxic disinfectant spray, it’s really easy! All you need is hydrogen peroxide and white vinegar. For details, read: Create Homemade Disinfectant Spray.
