The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by a breast cancer survivor. After ongoing treatment with limited knowledge of the disease, she made it her mission to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection. Every October, the NBCF observes this month as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month as a way to educate women, fund research, and celebrate life.
At Misty Clean, we understand the absolute necessity of a clean home for women with breast cancer. That’s why we always offer free cleanings to women undergoing cancer treatments. Consider it our humble contribution to the women and families battling this disease.
If a member of your family is currently undergoing cancer treatments, it’s necessary to maintain a germ-free environment as their immune systems weaken during chemotherapy. Misty Clean can give your home the deep clean it deserves, and then you can keep it that way with these helpful tips.
Cover Your Cough
This one is simple but necessary. It’s important that the spread of germs remains minimal. That means to limit contact with people that may have illnesses or even a common cold. Ask them to wear a mask when in your home or to simply wash their hands before visiting.
While at home, take the time to wash your hands repeatedly, wipe down the doorknobs, stair rails, remote controls, etc. Medical grade hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes are great to have close to hand. Be extra careful with your phone and computer keyboards as they can easily trap germs.
Beware the Sponge
Did you know that your kitchen sponge contains more bacteria than the average toilet seat? If you think you’re cleaning your dishes, think again. That porous, moist sponge that’s been dangling over the sink all day is a trap for germs. You can reduce the number of bacteria in your sponge by running it through hot water, using it only in the sink, and occasionally ditching it and grabbing a new one.
