Nobody needs to remind you that it’s cold and flu season. And most definitely, nobody needs to remind you that the H1N1 virus (formerly known as swine flu) is causing a panic around the world.
Whether or not you’ve had a flu shot, everyone’s awareness about germs has been raised this year. I keep a pump bottle of hand sanitizer on my desk, and lots of people pop in and use it. Here’s another way you can keep germs at bay: disinfectant wipes. They come in pop-up containers and individually wrapped packets.
The whole point is to clear away germs in a way that hand sanitizer and spray can’t. Disposable wipes have direct contact with surfaces and can give you peace of mind when you’re around germ-y areas: public waiting rooms, hotels, rest rooms and all around the house.
Because they’re portable, you can keep one with you at all times—because you never know when a contagious person may have been one step ahead of you.
