Wipe Wednesday

Do you know where your cell phone and the bottom of your purse have been?

Did you hand your tablet or phone to someone who is hacking, sneezing and coughing all over it? Maybe a child?

For me, I like easy, and safe, and green and budget friendly. So, I grab my Shaklee Germicide, which cleans, disinfects and deodorizes. It is effective against: Bacteria’s, Viruses, Animal Viruses and fungi! I spray some of the super diluted Germicide onto a cloth (I use a micro fiber window and mirror cloth) and wipe down my phone, and the cover, and the screen  – all over it… twice!   Then, I use the same cloth (always test on a small section for color fastness and other issues) and wipe down the bottom of my purse and the handles of my purse!

Feeling better – it’s Wipe Wednesday!
