Are you sick or is someone ill with a cold or flu in your household? To help prevent the spread of germs, it's important to disinfect household items that can harbor viruses on their surfaces. The top items include your phone, which is typically in constant contact, because cold and flu viruses can last for days on the screens. Other common items include remote controls, bathroom and kitchen faucets, and towels, which should be cleaned in hot water. Wipe down door handles and computer keyboards, and wash all bedding once the sick person feels better.
