I’ve shared a few times here how we’ve been sick for what feels like forever. I know many other families have been experiencing quite a bit of sickness these past few months too; it seems as if these bugs and germs are getting tougher and tougher! Because of this, it’s so important to be sure you take the proper steps to stay well and keep your family healthy.
LYSOL is introducing the concept of Healthing– a new idea centered on keeping families as healthy as possible, by looking beyond just cleaning. We know it’s important to be sure and keep your home clean, but it’s important to have it healthy as well. It’s important to be sure you do some deep cleaning to disinfect and kill the germs and bacteria that may be on the surfaces of your home, and to actively care for those surfaces to avoid the spread of germs. I love LYSOL Disinfectant Spray, LYSOL Disinfecting Wipes, and our new LYSOL No-Touch Hand Soap for these things, since they help avoid the spread of germs and kill germs that are already there, and they make for little to no work on your part; Who doesn’t love that?! The No-Touch Hand Soap we use daily, of course, and the LYSOL Disinfecting Wipes are part of our normal cleaning routine in our bathrooms and kitchen.
LYSOL has some great tips to help you get started making your home a healthy place for your family.
-Know the difference between cleaning and disinfecting! Both are important components of the Healthing process and LYSOL® has products that can help with all related tasks. While cleaning and organizing is certainly important, killing germs on commonly touched surfaces can lower the risk of spreading bacteria and viruses between members of the family.
-Start with the basics – wipe down easy to reach surfaces and then move onto the little nooks and crannies.
-Use a disinfectant product, like LYSOL® Disinfecting Wipes, to help ensure you’re killing germs as you clean, and think beyond the usual places. Be sure to clean even the smallest surfaces, such as light switches.
-Don’t forget to disinfect places that you don’t see or think about often, like the door knobs, cabinet handles or sink drains.
-Remember to practice proper hand washing as well after you clean, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer. Hand washing is the single most important thing you can do to prevent illness, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Stay healthy!! 🙂
