Go to Favorites 5 Home Products Designed With Your Worst Germ Fears in Mind

We’ve all become a lot more sensitive to germs and being cautious about what we touch—even in our own homes. Try as you may, it can often feel impossible to keep your home clean and germ-free for long. If you’re someone who flinches at the very thought of bacteria-laden surfaces inhabiting your abode, you may find comfort in knowing there are products designed to put your mind at ease.

No matter how much and how often you clean, sometimes the best solution is to minimize what you touch, and how often you touch them. Well, these gadgets ensure that you can do just that, and give you an edge on staying healthy.

1. Hands

-free soap dispenser and faucet

Sure, you’re washing your hands frequently, but what germs are you leaving behind on your soap dispenser and faucet handles before you lather up?

With a sensor so

ap pu

mp, you can wave those worries goodbye. This hygienic and hands-free solution has a sensor that dispenses the right amount of soap without requiring even a gentle touch. Simply wave your hand and voila! It’s perfect for kitchens and bathrooms. Plus, it’s easy to refill. By

soaping up your hands before you touch your faucets, you’re minimizing the spread of germs.

If you want to go the

extra mile, install a touchless faucet, which senses your presence, and even shuts off automatically when you remove your hands to reduce water waste.

2. Self-sealing, voice-activated trash cans

Taking out the garbage has to be one of the grimiest household chores out there. But with a self-sealing, self-changing trash can, you can breathe a little easier on garbage day. The Townew garbage can was created, not surprisingly, by a founder with a slight case of germaphobia. This self-sealing and self-changing trash can uses infrared sensors to prevent overfill, and most importantly, seals in odors.

Or, opt for a voice- and motion-sensor trash can which recognizes three commands, including “open can,” “stay open,” and “close can.” If your hands are full

or covered in bacteria from touching raw meats, this prevents the spread of germs and saves you from cleaning yet another surface. And, hey, if nothing else, you know at least something in your home will listen to you.

3. Washable keyboard

If you spend large amounts of time at your computer (and possibly even eat any or all of your three meals beside it or over it), you may be wondering what nasty germs are lurking beneath and between those keys. A washable keyboard can put your mind at ease. Designed to be hand-washed or eve

n submerged, these officemates are ideal for anyone who’s not only worried about germs but may have also dropped a drink or squirted ketchup between the keys. And if you’ve ever dreamt of typing from the tub, here’s your chance.

4. Smartphone sanitizer

A smartphone often feels like a lifeline, but in addition to storing tons of contacts and information, it may also be storing plenty of germs. To ensure your phone is getting the deep clean it needs, consider a UV sanitizer that kills up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses without the use of chemicals or mercury. Rid your phone of germs in just one minute with the help of two UV-C germicidal LEDs. Then dial, text, and swipe with confidence.

5. Touchless toilet flush

Not only is an automatic flush toilet more sanitary, but if you have kids and you’re expecting guests, you’ll never be embarrassed by an unpresentable surprise in the powder room again. It’s easy to install and you won’t have to worry about germs coating that handle any longer.

You’ve got enough to think about and worry about, let items like these cut down on some common germ-catchers in the home.

I am absolutely DELIGHTED to offer my review of Karey. We contacted her at the beginning of February, 2016. We had been offered a purchase price on the house that we had been renting for a year....and we had NO IDEA what to do next. My friend, who bought... (more)
