Schools are being closed. Companies are requiring employees to work from home. Festivals, conferences, sporting events, and concerts are being cancelled all over the world. As we enter into a time of quarantine culture in the age of coronavirus, making sure our home is clean and germ-free is more crucial than ever. These tips will help.

Wash your hands. No, REALLY wash them.

It seems so easy, but the fact is that most people don’t wash their hands properly—and some—disgustingly—don’t wash their hands at all. “Proper handwashing is particularly important because it is such a critical step in preventing the spread of germs, yet a study found that 95 percent of people are doing it incorrectly,” said the American Cleaning Institute. They advise to scrub your hands, after lathering with soap, for at least 20 seconds. To make it fun, sing Happy Birthday twice while washing, or try a few of these options.

Use hand sanitizer

If you’re in a place where soap isn’t an immediate option, hand sanitizer is your friend. If you can find it, given the fact that it’s sold out everywhere and price gougers were charging up to $300 a bottle on eBay, you’ll want to use it liberally when you’re out in public. Touch a table? Sanitize. Forget you’re not supposed to be shaking hands? Sanitize. Remember that it has to have at least 60 percent alcohol to be effective.

Give your house a good scrubbing

Now is the time to take your regular cleaning program up a few notches. Stock up on your favorite disinfectant spray and paper towels and get those surfaces spic n span. Counters, appliances, bathrooms, and floors should all be thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis. And surfaces that are touched often should be wiped down at least a few times a day.
