The last several weeks or so, it seems like everyone I know has had the flu or a cold. My husband and I keep passing a cold back and forth, and since I'm pregnant, this is definitely not fun at all and I feel like I'm doing everything in my power to try to disinfect myself and my home. I could buy stock in Purell and Kleenex at this point, y'all. I decided to see what else I could do to keep my home as germ free as possible, and found 11 surface areas in your home you're forgetting to sanitize. Though I've done some of these, a few I didn't think about, and it may be why our house is like the plague these days. Time to go buy some more Purell and some Lysol wipes.
Flu and cold season has been bad everywhere, and according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this has been the most widespread and terrible flu researchers have seen in years, reaching almost all 50 states. That's some scary stuff, and we are still just in the month of January. Before feeling like you should be either quarantined to your home, go out in a bubble, or sanitize guests and your babysitter before they enter, check out some of these areas to disinfect around the house — you might be forgetting a couple.
