Winter might be a thing of the past (finally!) but that doesn’t mean we’re free of colds, the flu and a hodge podge of other illnesses. Many of us also have to deal with seasonal allergies too.
Would you consider yourself a “germaphobe”? A germaphobe is someone who is obsessed with keeping things clean and sanitized to fight off germs and bacteria.
The first time I heard that term was on an episode of Seinfeld where Elaine’s boyfriend, David Puddy, admitted to being one.
I am not a germaphobe, but I am aware that germs are on every surface that my family touches. That is why I clean with discinfectants on many surfaces in my home (kitchen counter, bathroom sink…). I also spray Lysol on door knobs, light switches and remote controls.
I know it’s impossible to protect my family from all germs and bacteria, but at least I can reduce their chances of getting sick. They are also great about washing their hands.
Flu season is not over yet. According to the CDC website February tends to be the peak month for the Flu, however it can still occur in March and April too. Actually the flu can happen year round – its just more prevalent during the winter months.
Did you know that your local Staples carries a lot of products and supplies to help keep your workplace – and your home – germ free?
People often think of Staples as a office supply store. While the store does carry everything you need for your business or home office (paper, pens, desks, paper shredders, computers…), they also carry plenty of other products including break room, medical supplies and safety supplies as well as furniture.
Check out this funny video about a germaphobe at the office and co-worker who I am pretty sure no one wants to work near. LOL!
It’s funny how crazy the germophobe in the commercial is. He thought of everything. Hopefully no one is THAT obsessed with a germ-free environment.
What he co-worker does makes my stomach turn. I have been on planes where people have done that. I have even been in car service cars where the driver is coughing and sneezing like crazy. Ewww!!! There is nothing worse then being stuck inside a small space with a sick person. You just know that their cold is going to make it’s way to you.
