Quarantine quick tips

Hey, mamas! By now I’m sure most of you have already developed some kind of cleaning and disinfecting ritual during these strange times. We’re all working hard to try to disinfect as many things as possible in an effort to keep our families safe and healthy.

I ran across a great reminder list published in the The New York Times recently which outlines a number of “high-touch surfaces” that should be disinfected regularly, since they get more touches than most other things in the house. I added “smartphones” to the list and then turned it into the graphic below which you can easily save as a photo on your smartphone. Use it as a reminder of what should be wiped down. (Get your kids involved and have them help wipe down each of these items.)

Experts say we should wipe down high-touch surfaces daily while threat of the Coronavirus is still ramping up. If possible, use a disinfecting wipe or spray that says “Kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria.” If you don’t have those, try rubbing alcohol or even Purell or Germ-x on a paper towel. Remember to wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds after you clean.

Hope this list helps you remember to disinfect your home’s hot spots each day and stay healthy. If you know of other high-touch surfaces that should be on this list, let us know by posting a comment below!
