The reason we say washing your hands is better than hand sanitizer, is that scrubbing with soap and water will get that stuff off a surface.
Here are some specific things suggested by maids service Grove City, OH, to keep in mind:
The kitchen, or any area where food is prepped or consumed, is one of the best places for germs to hang around. There are so many surfaces you have to touch, often as a matter of habit, that you can easily overlook places to keep disinfected even if you have the best of intentions.
Damp towels may be an excellent site for coronavirus droplets to stay alive longer than if they had landed on a hard surface. During this time of abundant caution it makes sense to wash towels more frequently and, if possible, to only use hand towels once when drying your hands (or perhaps everyone has their own dedicated hand towel to use for hand drying).
This is where many items from our normal day end up, possibly contaminating each other before being used again. Wash pillowcases more frequently since that is where airborne droplets will occur the most and empty the trash can daily (especially if it doesn’t have a cover) to eliminate places where germs can congregate.
Any laundry that could have coronavirus germs should be handled with disposable gloves. And, since coronavirus is transmitted through airborne droplets, take care not to shake the laundry (such as is when placing it in the washing machine). If you don’t have enough disposable gloves then dedicate reusable gloves to coronavirus cleaning and use those for touching laundry.
Rubbing alcohol (or “surgical spirit” as it is called in the United Kingdom) is a way to disinfect device surfaces without risking water damage. It evaporates quickly enough that if you wipe it on a device with a cloth or paper towel, there isn’t enough time for it to migrate into the cracks and openings of a device and cause internal damage.
The person who is self-isolating or showing signs of illness should have their own trash receptacle. Anyone who disposes of the trash bags should wear disposable gloves while doing so.
Even if you wear gloves while touching surfaces that have been contaminated, you can still be in danger if you don’t take remove them properly. Use your fingers on one hand to pull the other glove down your hand, grabbing the plastic near your wrist (not at its tapered edge where you could come in contact with your skin). Pull your fingers through the glove so that you turn it inside out as it comes off your hands. Then, use the inside-out glove to take off your other glove in the same manner and throw both away immediately.
