Techniques To Fend Off Germs As Cold And Flu Season Approaches

Originally published & reprinted with permission from CleanLink Online


Everyone has a unique personality. But did you know that you and the people you work with each day also have unique germ personalities? A new quiz from Kimberly-Clark Professional* can tell you where you stand on the germaphobe spectrum as well as how the germ personalities (and hygiene habits) of co-workers, colleagues and others can impact your health.

With cold-and-flu season on its way, knowing your germ personality could be more important than you think. Whether you're a "Fearful Fanatic" or a "Proud Exterminator," if you're among the more than one third of the population who are germ anxious, you may want to prepare sooner rather than later.

That's because many of the people around you are "Unconcerned" (in quiz terminology), which means they may not have the best hygiene habits. As a result, they can spread germs to others via commonly touched surfaces in offices, hotels, schools, stadiums and other locations. These germ "hot spots" are breeding grounds for illness-causing bacteria -- including cold, flu and stomach bugs.

This is part 1-of-2 blog posts with WAXIE Sanitary Supply’s interview with Peter Leahy from Kimberly-Clark Professional*

The second half of the interview is Workplace Wellness: How You Can Take Action

Typically everyone spends at least 8 hours a day at work, which is sometimes more than you spend with your family during the week. So you’re at work a lot. It’s your home away from home for all intents and purposes. As such, Workplace Wellness is a very important topic no matter where you work, especially when colds and the flu start making the rounds, not to mention allergy season.
