13 ways to keep bacteria and viruses out of your house
Especially if someone is sick
Take some steps to avoid bacteria and especially if you are sick or have a sick person at home
1. Make hand washing a habit
2. Put a hand sanitiser next to the front door
This will limit the entry of bacteria inside the house.
3. Clean the things you touch often
4. Disinfect the places where you place the food
5. Don't share your towel
Use the same towel throughout your illness and wash it once you get well.
6. Do not share your bed
You're more likely to transfer it to the one you sleep with and vice versa.
7. Keep public areas clean
