You can’t always control what germs come into a home or facility. But you can keep from spreading them around. For example, if your custodial staff is using the same cloth to clean both a bathroom and a desk, they could be cross-contaminating surfaces without even knowing it. In this Educational Quick Clip, “green cleaning guru” Steve Ashkin spells out some simple cleaning tips that are not just valuable for cold-and-flu season, but all year ‘round.
