|How I have spent most of the weekend looking.|
Upon viewing various websites on how to get rid of said symptoms I came across an interesting article about things we all do everyday with out realising how unsanitary something simple like putting our hand bags on their floor is and the amount of germs that can build up by doing this each week!
Here is sort list
1. Your Handbag
Think about how often you take your handbag out. Where you leave it. How long it might be left there.
Bit gross, but the simple way to keep handbag germs at germs it to wipe it down at least once a week.
2. Your Lipstick
There is a reason surgeons wear masks, a reason why dentists too cover their mouths, a reason why we brush our teeth twice daily. It is because our mouths are one of the biggest germ zones in our body's!
Lipstick therefore collects a lot of germs and keeps the germs locked inside once we put the lid back on (so imagine how much germs could be collected on one lipstick for a girls night out with everyone sharing).
The best thing to do to keep germs at bay would be to dip the lipstick into alcohol one a week (at least) at get tissue or a cloth to wipe the outside layer. Or spray it/ dip it in disinfectant and wipe the outside layer down.
3. Your Steering Wheel
If your in your car your obviously out if your house, so think of how much germ zones you are going to come into contact with - Petrol pumps, doors, money, hand rails - the list is endless!
There is two ways to try to limit germs here
A) Keep hand sanitizer with you and use it when you feel/ know you must.
B) keep a packet of wipes in your car and wipe down the steering wheel at least twice a week and use the gloves/ tissue provide at petrol stations.
4. Your Mobile Phone
Think of all the places you take your phone, think of how often you touch your phone. Now think of how many germs are on your phone and now to be extra gross let's think of how we like to take our phones up to our face, ears and mouth - ahem lipstick mouth germs.
Again a simple wipe down will help and also to try to keep hand clean while using our phones will be of great help.
5. Keyboards and Remote Controls
Think of how many people might touch a keyboard or remote control, think of all the places they could of been and think of all the things they might of touched. These objects tend to be bgerm paradise .
The good news is that it only takes a few moments to wipe down both key boards & remotes.
