Just in time for flu season, Health magazine reported on the 12 germiest places in America with helpful ways to reduce your risk.
1. Your kitchen sink 2. Airplane bathrooms 3. A load of wet laundry 4. Public drinking fountains 5. Shopping cart handles 6. ATM buttons 7. Your handbag 8. Playgrounds 9. Mats and machines at health clubs 10. Your bathtub 11. Your office phone 12. The hotel room remote control
If you take the time to try to eliminate germs this winter, with any luck you won't get too sick.
all of those places seem to be exactly where my kid has been wanting to be. well most of them anyway. we try to teach the hand washing rule: if you touch something dirty, wash your hands right after. we also carry sanitizing hand wash with us.
