10 PLACES TO WATCH OUT FOR GERMS:
1. Grocery Carts
3. Door Knobs
4. Refrigerator Handles
5. Counter Tops
6. Remote Control
7. Light Switches
8. Water Fountains
9. Dr. Office Pens
10. Restaurant Pens
If you think about it people are always coughing and sneezing and don't cover their month. Then things are spread or they do cover their mouth then touch all the above items without washing their hands first.
Toilets when you flush shoot up Germs right into the air and spread everywhere. Water Fountains kids put their mouth on then the next person gets their Germs.
I like to use Wipes or Lysol on these items to help cut down on the Germs. Some Grocery Stores offer Anti-Bacterial Wipes for the Grocery Carts.
Be Careful and Stay Healthy
