I am trying to be more careful about wiping down surfaces

I have wipes that supposedly kill viruses, and since there are some nasties going around I could use some suggestions on where and how often to use them?

I know of light switches, door knobs, faucet and toilet handles, phones, remotes..where else?

I use white vinegar and water. I don't like the harshness of those wipes . I think you've got all the spots covered.

I LOVE Norwex for this. It sounds like you've got all the big places covered. I'd also wipe down areas like the fridge door handle, cabinet handles, etc.

I didn't do the cars at all, and I can see that the handles, keys, steering wheels, would be candidates for spreading germs. Thank you for the reminders.

Refrigerator, microwave, soap dispenser, coffee pot, drawers, I sometimes wipe down handles of milk jugs too. You probably do this but change out hand towels every day.

Yup. And make sure you have hand sanitizer in the car and use it after filling up your gas tank before touching ANYTHING else. that is one of the dirtiest surfaces in the world, the keypad and handle for the gas.

I missed quite a few places, I see. Thank you for the reminder. And about the hand towels.
