Flu Virus on Toys

Flu Virus on Toys

Flu season is in full swing, so it’s best you start taking precautions to keep your whole family flu-free! 

The influenza virus can live on hard surfaces for up to 24 hours, including your child’s plastic toys. Children are extra-susceptible to catching the virus, so it’s smart to disinfect their toys regularly to keep them healthy. If you have one sick child and want to keep the other from catching the virus, be sure to disinfect all the toys the sick child has played with as well as any hard surfaces they touched in their bedroom or in the bathroom.

Be sure to use an antibacterial cleaner to make sure you bust all the viruses and other illness-causing bacteria there!
