Germs and bacteria are prone to spread around the home, work and play areas, therefore it is imperative that we practice healthy habits to keep germs at bay. Germs can be passed from person to person or indirectly by touching unclean equipment or surfaces.

These tips will help you keep the ger

  • Keep mold and mildew (mold) at bay: these can trigger allergic reactions, so use Bleach in the corners of the bath and shower and in any other areas that are prone to mildew.

  • Let air flow: every time you have a shower, leave the door open afterwards to allow for some airflow. This will help to dry out the shower quicker and slow down mold growth. Open windows too, and keep your bathroom fresh and airy.

  • Choose liquid soap: a bar of soap can easily become a home for germs, so go for liquid soap when washing hands and go for body wash when in the bath or shower.

  • If someone's been sick or had diarrhoea: make sure that you give your toilet a blast of  bleach around the rim and anywhere else where hands frequently touch – such as taps and the toilet handle.

  • Avoid blockages: pour multipurpose thick bleach down plugholes and drains on a regular basis to prevent the build-up of residue in your pipes.

  • Use separate towels and facecloths: if someone has an infection, wash their laundry separately to that of the rest of the family.
