Mission Sanitization

So my 4 year old has the Flu.



Yes, he got his flu shot and still got it!




Definitely has not been fun, but I also have an 11 month old to worry about. So as soon as we got back from the doctor with the diagnosis I started sanitizing.





I took all of the solid toys and soaked them in hot soapy water (I used Dawn), took the stuffed animals and threw them in the washing machine, and used Lysol Disinfecting Wipes on everything non-porous.



We set my son up in a different room with the TV and my husband entertained him while I took care of the baby.

That worked fine for the first day, but the doctor said it could be 10 days until he isn't contagious and my husband has to work the rest of the week! So every day I have been switching out toys and rotating them and washing and sanitizing.

I've also been stripping all of the beds and washing sheets, pillow cases, and comforters. My sister also suggested to change the hand towels in the bathrooms and kitchen frequently because they can hold germs.  I think my washing machine has been running for 4 days straight!

How do you try to keep sickness contained to only one person in your house?

  1. That's so totally cleanliness in details, also don't forget to sanitize anyone who from outside and is coming inside the house should go straight to the Comfort Room and change clothes as to get rid of the germs they got.
