Be Aware of the Summer Bacteria and Viruses

With Summer comes barbecues, the beach, and of course the playground. Fact is, germs love Summer too! Some of our favorite summertime activities and hot spots are also breeding grounds for germs. Stay armed during the summer with a Hand Sanitizer Squeeze Bottle it will come in handy when enjoying these summertime pastimes.

The Swimming Pool

While you’re enjoying the swimming pool, a parasite called cryptosporidium could be swimming right next to you. Crypto is a chlorine-tolerant parasite that survives in a chlorinated pool for up to 10 days.

Also, the CDC reports one in five Americans swim while experiencing diarrhea, which can heavily contaminate water with crypto and make other swimmers sick.

Chlorine doesn't necessarily kill all germs and bacteria in pools. Use Hand Sanitizer in between jumping in. Also, make sure you shower thoroughly after swimming.

The Playground

Kids really love this place but it also doubles as a germ playground.

A recent study shows 60 playgrounds in four states (Maryland, Virginia, New York, and Washington) found 59 types of germs that could make children seriously ill. The list of substances found included E.coli, Salmonella, fecal matter, hepatitis A, and Shigella.

The best way to rid these germs & protect your kids against harmful playground bacteria is good hygiene. For kids, nothing kills germs faster and more completely than washing hands and using Hand Sanitizer after playing.

The Grill

Leaving your grill outside and exposed to the harmful elements of summer is a recipe for disaster. For example, a flock of birds flying next to your grill looking for food.

Even if you clean bird droppings off your grill, the heat grilling creates alone cannot guarantee all viruses and bacteria will be killed.

Another exmple is small animals, who are attracted by the smell of grills and can get caught inside the grill and die. If you don’t notice them, the resulting smoke and flames of grilling can cause your meat or vegetables to be contaminated. Keep your grill covered and stored indoors!

Protect yourself from these Summer threats: Dangerous germs, bacteria and potential viruses. With good hygiene and smart planning, you can avoid the germs of summer.
