Do You Clean Your Handrails?

I used to be part of a multi--Teams of cleaning crews for the church I attended. Everything looked clean and vacuumed when we were done! Occasionally we would finish early, so I began to look for areas that might get overlooked especially during cold and flue seasons! The handrails going upstairs to the children's class rooms was my first thing to address, when I finished cleaning with a disinfectant type cleaner and paper towels, (LOTS of BOTH), I showed the used paper towels to the rest of the crew and it became a MUST do item, the soiled paper towels said it all. Anything that human hands, and little kids touch on a regular basis is in need of cleaning and disinfecting!

    As someone who works in the senior living field, I can echo this!!! Door knobs, buttons in elevators, on microwaves, handles, hand rails, etc...there are so many!!! Thanks for sharing.

    Also, try not to touch the handrail on escalators. Same reason.
