I’m still on a much-needed break, but I wanted to quickly share with you what we do year round that could be a great solution to cutting down on the spread of germs when entertaining during this nasty cold and flu season.
Each powder room in our home has a basket or tray filled with clean white hand towels, just like in fancy hotels and restaurants. They can be bought in bulk at Costco or Sam’s Club. Instead of everyone drying their hands on the same towel (because let’s face it…not everyone does the best at thoroughly washing their hands!), each guest uses a soft, clean, dry towel of their own that can be dropped into a mesh bag-lined pail or basket after use. The mesh bag (the kind used for laundering lingerie…like $1 at Walmart) can be pulled without having to touch any of the towels and dropped into your regular laundry load. No muss, no fuss! It takes only a couple of minutes to fold them up out of the dryer. You save money in the long run, keep thousands of paper towels out of landfills, pamper your guests with a fun little luxury, AND help prevent the spread of germs. What a deal!!!
My germophobic doctor hubby deserves all the credit for this one. We’ve been doing it for years, but with so many people getting sick I thought it prudent to pass it along!
