Raise your hand if you’ve visited an urgent care or telemedicine this flu season.
I am determined that this year we will not fall into the after-hours urgent care visit cycle over and over again.
Tricks for How to Prevent Getting Sick This Flu Season
Once I have the sheets in the washer, I like to lightly spray the mattress with Microban 24 Sanitizing Spray. You can use the disinfectant spray on both hard and soft surfaces! The spray goes on without any offensive odors and dries quickly.
It dried so quickly that I could make the bed shortly (post-dinner) after spraying it!
- TV Remotes
- Stair Railings
- Door Handles
- Dresser Knobs/Pulls
Once you have your sheets in the wash, it’s time to spray all of the “touchpoints” around your home. Think about the bedrooms, living rooms, entryways, and hallways. What areas in your home get touched the most and are likely to have a lot of bacteria?
I prefer to use Microban 24’s Multi-Purpose Cleaner.
Here is why I like it, with many disinfectants, bacteria can be reintroduced after the first touch. The unique Microban 24 technology kills the bacteria after it is introduced and provides continuous surface protection against bacteria.
In a busy house, we touch all the things repeatedly. The Microban 24 technology provides 24 hours of protection from bacteria growth on your surfaces even after multiple touches.
- Light Switches
- Charging Cables (I dampen the towel and wipe off the cords)
- Dresser Handles
Once you’ve covered off on the light switches and charging cables, it’s time to tackle the bathroom. Just like the Microban 24 Multi-Purpose Cleaner, the Microban 24 Bathroom Cleaner also protects surfaces from bacteria for 24 hours when used as directed as a 24-hour sanitizer. It also prevents the spread of mold and mildew for 7 DAYS!
- Bathtubs/Shower Area (if necessary)
