  1. Be Sure to Wash Your Hands

The first thing that you need to ensure is that you are thoroughly washing your hands on a regular basis. No matter how clean you think that your environment is, it’s going to be best that you keep those hands clean. There are germs pretty much everywhere and if you don’t watch out, you can easily spread them to your mouth and eyes when you touch your face.

  1. Keep Those Hand Sanitizers Around

Of course, one of your first lines of defense in this battle against germs is hand sanitizer. Make sure to keep the liquid hand sanitizer and hand wipes around at your desk. That way, you can make sure that your hands are super clean without having to go to the bathroom to wash your hands constantly. And if there are any germs around, you can just wipe them up with the hand wipes.

  1. Clean Your Desk At Least Once Per Week

You should make it a habit to clean your entire desk and workspace at least twice a week. This will leave no space for germs and bacteria to hide and fester. Your office desk is such a hotspot for these so it’s best to keep a small microfiber cleaning cloth around for easier wiping. Make sure to go through all of those areas that you would normally not clean and sanitize everything, including doing some carpet cleaning. Trust us when we say that you time you spend cleaning your workspace is going to ensure that you don’t get sick!

  1. Wash Your Water Bottle All of The Time

Your water bottle is one of the biggest sources of germs that you have around you. Many people don’t wash their water bottle on a regular basis, which is actually very gross if you think about. Tons of germs could be living in your water bottle right now, so make sure to hand wash it or put it in the dish washer on a regular basis.

  1. Never Keep Foods That Are Going to Perish Quickly Around Your Desk

You should never be keeping those food items that are going to perish quickly around your desk. These would include those leftovers you had the other night and the fruits you might bring to eat for a snack. These foods can easily perish and be a breeding ground for germs and other bacteria. Nasty!

  1. Clean Your Cell Phone Every Day

You would be totally surprised at the number of bacteria that is living on your cell phone right now. We never think about how dirty our phone is, but we always bring it up to our faces whenever we make calls and constantly touch it with our hands which have been who knows where. Make sure that you are consistently cleaning off your phone with hand wipes to ensure that no bacteria can live there and make you sick. If you have a waterproof phone, then you can even just run some water over it and wipe it off!

There you have it, folks. When you want a germ-free workspace, then these are the tips that you’ve got to keep in mind.
