How to Kill the Hidden Germs in Your Home


This time of year, the sounds of coughing and sneezing are all around us. As moms, part of our job is to do our best to protect our kids from the germs that cause the cold and flu virus.   One way I've found to make killing the germs on our household surfaces easier is to use Clorox Disinfecting Wipes.  They not only make it faster to keep things clean, but they also kill the germs that can easily be spread in a household with 4 active boys and a slew of Daycare Kids.  Anything I can do to prevent a flu outbreak with all of these kids is time and money well-spent!


Clorox Disinfecting Wipes kill 99.9% of germs that cause colds and flu.  These germs have a sneaky way of hiding on the surfaces in our homes and being spread by little hands that love to put everything into their mouths.  Using Clorox Disinfecting Wipes where germs hide can go a long way to keeping your family healthy and happy in 2014.

In the Kitchen:
Use Clorox Disinfecting wipes on faucets, cabinet knobs and handles, and counters.  Don't forget those often used handles on the refrigerator, freezer, and microwave.  I also use them on light switches and their covers.  It always amazes me how many finger prints and smudges can gather there.  My 2-year-old has an obsession with creating his own light raves where he turns them on and off....and on....and off....

In the Bathroom:
In our house, this room is constantly begging to be disinfected.  I have four boys of my own ranging in age from 18 months - 7 years.  Add in a few Daycare kids (one of which is ALWAYS potty training) and a good deal of our time is spent in the bathroom.  Clorox Disinfecting Wipes make it so easy to clean up the mess that is left after the older boys brush their teeth in the morning.  A quick swipe quickly removes all the leftover toothpaste that ends up on the sink, the faucet, and even on the mirror!  I also like to take a wipe to the toilet, starting with the handle to flush it and working my way from top to bottom and all along the floor.  I will never understand how so much pee can end up everywhere, but actually IN the potty.
Around the House:
Throughout the house, I use Clorox Disinfecting wipes on doorknobs and light switch covers.  I also use them on remote controls and game controllers that get passed from hand to hand.  They make it quick and easy to wipe down phones (including all the play cell phones) and I've even been known to use them on the television screen to wipe off little fingerprints.  It only takes a few moments to have a cleaner, healthier home!

Clorox wants to help you have a Healthy and Happy 2014!  They are offering one lucky reader a $100 Visa Gift Card.  To enter, comment below and tell me, "What are your tips and tricks for a flu-free winter"?

  1. I make everybody wash their hands as soon as they come in the door!

  2. Flu shots, hand washing, washing lovies more often, and we definitely use Clorox wipes - mostly in the kitchen. Now, if I could just keep everyone locked in the house for the next month until the other bugs are all gone!

  3. I send my kids to school with the hand packs of germ wipes in their school bag so they can clean their hands before they eat a snack or lunch. I also use Clorox wipes at home and send them into my kid's classrooms. Unless they bring a bad cold home, I rarely get sick.

  13. Year round I pack sandwich baggies with Clorox Disinfecting Wipes. They are in the cars, my pocketbooks, luggage etc. I have them within easy reach to wipe down shopping carts, seats, door handles and so forth. We have experienced the entire family hit with the flu bug and I will do whatever I can to reduce some of the surface germs.

  54. I'm mostly a homebody, yet I was sick back to back last year, with everything from strep throat and sinus infections to the common cold and flu. It's common knowledge to disinfect and wash hands regularly, but most don't mention the doors, carts, and items that we touch while we're out in the stores. No telling who is sick and have touched these things. This is how we're mostly introduced to others' germs. Some of us might even go somewhere to eat after we're done shopping, yet haven't washed our hands beforehand. So, that's why I now bring hand sanitizer with me. I also wash, wash, wash my hands while in public, especially before I eat something. :)

  158. I'm not obsessive about germs, but I do like to make sure some particular areas are cleaned more often than others. Door knobs, faucets, toilet handles and drawer pulls come in contact with germ laden hands more often than any other places. I like to keep those wiped down with Clorox wipes.

  160. You should avoid friends and family members who are sick! If someone in your household is sick then be proactive by using Clorox wipes to disinfect surfaces including the bathroom sink, kitchen counter, door knobs, phones, etc. Wash your hands frequently with soap and hot water. When you are out carry disinfecting wipes and/or hand sanitizer to kill germs on the run when you do not have access to soap and water.

  161. Wash the hands frequently. And people, if you're sick, don't go to work and spread it to others! Stay home and get well!

  162. We have a bottle of hand sanitizer in every room of our house and I keep some in my purse as well. I also wipe stuff down with either bleach or antibacterial cleaner all the time. I also use the wipes at the grocery store to wipe down the handle of the cart.

  173. I wish I had the answer to how to prevent the Flu. I have been downed by the flu the last two years, both of which have progressed to pneumonia. I always thought I did everything to prevent getting it, but I am missing something obviously

  174. My tips and tricks for a flu free winter are to wash hands every chance you get with hot water and anti-bacterial soap. Avoid touching your face. Eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies and exercise to keep your immune system working!

  175. Even when it is super cold, I will open a window for a few minutes just to exchange the air in the house for fresh air. I think it is so important to keep the air in your home as fresh as possible to avoid that closed up sick air from forming.

  184. My tip for a flu-free winter is to wash your hands frequently. When you are away from home, keep hand sanitizer in the car or on you (travel size) for times you can't wash your hands.
