A few years ago, I was working in an office when pretty much everyone contracted the flu.
Not the “Oh, I have the flu” because your stomach got upset one night flu but the diagnosed, Type A flu that you need rest and a couple of days off of work.
Did my co-workers take those days off? No, they did not. Major pet peeve. Don’t even get me started. The flu spread around the office like wildfire. I was lucky enough, at the time, to have my own office with a door that closed, and I took full advantage of that closed door; let me tell you. When people, sick people, did come into my office, I’d whip out my container of disinfectant wipes and wipe down everything that person had touched: the chair, my desk, a pen, even the door knobs, door casings and the door itself.
I did not get the flu.
Disinfectant wipes are a great product to keep in your car, your office, your house and even your purse because who loves to touch the handle of grocery carts after 79 other people have handled them that day, maybe even after blowing their nose or shaking hands with a person who was sick.
At home, I also wipe down everything after someone in my family has been sick.
At work, I wipe frequently because I just don’t always have control over who comes into my office. Besides, for my day job, a lot of kids come through my office who have serious illnesses. I want to protect them, too.
Disinfectant wipes come in handy dispensers or travel packs for places like your car or your purse.
Pick some up today, and grab an extra package or two to send to school with your child.
