Try as we might, it is nearly impossible to completely stop the spread of cold and flu bugs around our kids’ schools. While kids may not be the best at being cautious about reducing the spread of these ailments, we parents can definitely do our part at home in order to reduce the impact and even the spread of common cold and flu infections. The fight definitely begins and ends at home! We wanted to spend some time today sharing our research into how you can best disinfect your home when a child or other family member gets sick this year. Heck, you can even use these tips year ‘round even if someone isn’t sick in order to help everyone in the house stay that way. Read on for more tips and tricks on disinfecting your home, just in time for Back To School season!
We all have our personal objects that only we ever touch throughout the course of the average week like our hairbrush and toothbrush or coffee mug, but what about things that just about everybody touches everyday?

Here are a few things to get you started:
Help stop the spread of germs and viruses by helping your children wash their hands more often during these times and to wash them for longer than usual. Also remind them to refrain from sharing beverages and utensils and from touching their eyes or face in general.
When a kid comes home with a cold or flu bug, it is definitely a bummer, but there are plenty of things that we can do to help stop or reduce the spread. With these things in mind and a little luck, you will make this year and every year a great back to school experience.
