27 Things in Your Office You NEED to Disinfect this Flu Season



No matter how many sick days you have, no one likes getting the flu. And, as the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We suggest extra cleaning protocols this time of year, no matter where you work.

To make this easy, leave a bottle of EfferSan readily available, along with paper towels or a microfiber cloth (for a green alternative). EfferSan’s no rinse formula and affordability make it a perfect disinfectant for offices of all types.

While frequency is key—you'd be amazed at how quickly germs can spread in an office—we also suggest you take a look at what is cleaned often and what is not. It’s so easy to overlook frequently touched objects.

Think about it, when was the last time you disinfected your tape dispenser?
