How's Your Hygiene? My Top Five Tips to Great Hygiene and Keeping Your Family Healthy

We all like to think that we have impeccable hygiene.  No one likes to think of the germ-infested and, grimy surfaces which we come in contact with each and every day, some of us are just a little more fanatical than others when it comes to our cleanliness.

I would say that I fall in the middle of the road when it comes to hygiene.  I care about it, but I am not a germaphobe.  

Here's what I do on a daily basis to try to keep myself and my family as healthy as possible, through great hygiene.

  • Wash my hands often and teach my children to take the time to wash their hands too
  • Use disposable tissues for sneezing & blowing your nose, and dispose of used tissues promptly
  • Cough into your sleeve
  • Make sure food is stored properly in the kitchen
  • Use a disinfectant wipe for wiping down surfaces within the home (counters, doorknobs, telephones, etc.)

Coughing into my sleeve is something I ALWAYS do. It's a pet peeve of mine when people don't.

Washing hands is a must! I trained my son to wash his hands as soon as he gets home from school and every time before and after eating. It's a great habit and he tells others to do it too lol. coughing and sneezing in your sleeve is a great one.

I'm trying to be less of a germaphobe, lol. I think the pique of my freaking out over germs was during VANOC in 2010 - there were just so many people in a small area, I think I was sneezed on roughly 4 times at one event alone (and I went to many.) No one covered their mouths as they coughed and sneezed. I can't leave home without pocket hand sanitizer these days, tho I'm working on not using it every hour or so. ;)

I'd say I'm probably like you... aware of hygiene but not phobic about it. I was impressed that my daughter's preschool taught her to cough into her sleeve with a little rhyme: "If you cough or if you sneeze, cover your mother with your sleeve." She taught it to her younger sister so that was cute! :)

You would call us germaphobes! Washing hands as much as possible!
