How to Flu Proof Your Home

remote_control
You can’t really enjoy your house if you’re in bed with the flu. Here are some areas to clean regularly during the sick season:

Remote controls and phones
Door knobs
Keyboards and mouses
Refrigerator handles
Kitchen and bathroom fixtures
Throw away the kitchen sponge-or at least wet it and microwave it for two minutes
If someone is sick, have them dry their hands on disposable towels
Wash hand towels daily in hot water and let them dry for 45 minutes
Your cleaning products should have “disinfect” or “sanitize” on the label. This may not be the time for natural products since they act more slowly and don’t kill as many germs.
