Are you a germaphobe? I know I am!! When H1N1 became a scare this fall, I had the children take their shoes off at the door and I sprayed them with Lysol. I am known to use my Lysol and Clorox disinfectant sprays and wipes quite literally. Our children are terribly allergic to dust mites. One of the recommendations is to wash their linens and stuffed animals in hot water once a week to kill the dust mites and any germs, so I do this. However, if your stuffed animal has a music box or a voice box, the water will ruin it. For those items, simply stick them in the freezer for 8 or more hours to kill the germs!!! I love it. You can do this with any toy that you cannot wash in another manner. Kill those germs! I'm tempted to freeze our money before touching it after learning that the flu germs live for SEVENTEEN DAYS on a dollar bill!!! Can it be true? THat is just disgusting!
