01/29 Pinterest Pin of the Week: Post Cold & Flu Clean-Up

by Pennie on January 29, 2013

This week’s VERY timely Pin comes to us from Clean My Space.  Considering that this is the worst flu season in years, I found this post to be extremely helpful.  Once we’ve been sick, we don’t necessarily consider where the germs were left behind.  This post: Post Cold & Flu Clean-Up has the obvious and, most importantly, the non-obvious places that should be cleaned after someone in your house has been sick.

The “Points of Contact” suggestion was especially enlightening, as well as the ideas about protecting your mattress and pillow!  With a new baby in the house who has a big brother in pre-school, we should probably doing this all the time-even if no one is sick!

Honestly, I never really gave this much thought until I read this post. My son recently got over the flu that he had for 3 weeks! Needless to say his germs are all over the house despite everything we tried during his illness. This is something everyone should read! Thanks!

As much as I like to use natural products around the house, when it comes to flu germs or other illnesses, I definitely don’t fool around. Lysol is number one for all surfaces, even if they’ve been otherwise cleaned. One thing that isn’t mentioned, is constant hand-washing, which will tend to minimize germ transmission to begin with, but will minimize your chances of getting a cold from something that was inadvertently touched. Another item to consider is toys. stick them in the dishwasher, or lysol them.
