Easy Ways To Keep Your Home Free From Bugs And Baby Friendly

Section: Shopping Ideas

We all may want a clean, germfree house, but add in a baby and the chance of you having that is pretty small. The good news is you don't need to waste valuable family time scrubbing the house with these quick and easy tricks to keeping your house clean and germ free.

Wash your hands
People suffering from viruses, colds and flu can unwittingly infect many people by touching door handles and computer keyboards, where the germs will continue to live for up to several days. Wash your hands regularly throughout the day and ensure you dry them fully as damp hands spread 1,000 times more germs than dry hands.

Shower power
Did you know one single bacteria cell can become more than three million cells in less than 24 hours? Bathrooms can be hotspots for hidden bacteria - after using the toilet, the number of germs on your hands doubles.

Chopping boards
Wash your chopping boards in warm soapy water, rinse and wipe over with an antibacterial wipe to destroy strong smells and to disinfect the surface to avoid cross contamination of foods.

Regularly wipe over food storage areas with antibacterial wipes
Regularly use an antibacterial wipe to clean out your fridge and cupboards where fresh foods have been stored.
