Today, we wanted to share our top 5 tips to help kill household germs. When cleaning your home, you might wonder what the best practices are to ensure you’re genuinely disinfecting the surfaces.

Start With Soap And Hot Water

If there’s a lot of dirt and grime on the surface, clean it first with soap and water. The reason for doing this is that it helps to remove the first layer so that the disinfectant can come in contact with the actual surface.

Let Your Disinfectant Sit

Once you wipe the area down with soap and water, the next step is to wipe it down with a disinfectant. Something important to remember, though, is to allow the disinfectant to sit rather than wiping it down right away. Different disinfectants have guidelines on how long they should sit, so check the specific recommendations on your cleaning supplies.

5 Tips to Help Kill Household Germs: Don’t Forget To Clean The Little Things

It can be easy to forget to clean the little areas in your home like the TV remote, light switches, or even your phone, but these things also need regular cleaning. The CDC even recommends cleaning these areas daily, if possible, and even more so when someone in the household is sick.

Always Have Cleaning Materials On Hand

No matter what happens throughout the day, having cleaning supplies on hand allows you to do a quick clean-up throughout the day. This can go a long way in helping to prevent further contamination throughout your home.

Save Cleaning Your Sink For Last

When you’re cleaning your home, you’ll usually dump or rinse washed items, which can result in your sink getting dirty again. Saving your sink for last can help ensure that every home’s surface stays clean.
