5 Tips for Disinfecting a Classroom


3
Give the Toys a Bath

If you work in a classroom where toys come into play, then you're working in ground zero of germs. Kids who are of toy age are most likely touching everything, including all areas of their own bodies, and then putting the toys in their mouths and sharing them with their playmates. This means community toys need to be cleaned regularly. Stuffed animals should be washed at least once a week during cold and flu season, while board games can be wiped with sanitizing wipes and plastic toys, like legos and action figures, will clean up with soap and water.
