Traveling during the cold and flu season means exposure to different germs, but these cleaning tips from Clorox can help you go the extra mile to keep you healthier in your snowy paradise this holiday season!

Disinfect High-Touch Objects

Staying indoors to enjoy your winter vacation from the comfort of your warm blanket means movie nights, board games, and snacks! Before starting your night in, disinfect all high-touch objects, like remotes, doorknobs, and counters to prevent the spread of germs that cause seasonal illnesses. Whether you’re traveling by car or plane, Clorox Disinfecting Wipes On the Go are a carry-on approved must-have!

Check Out The Bedding

Everyone has their own tricks when it comes to doing laundry.

Luckily, Clorox Multi-Surface Disinfecting Mist can serve your every need with its ability to sanitize and deodorize soft surfaces! That’s right, you can spray it directly on the couch, the mattress, and any soft surface without any wiping required. Give yourself peace of mind during your snowy stay with products you can trust!

Find Out The Policies

All hotels and Airbnbs are required to clean and disinfect the rooms after every guest. If you’re curious to know more about the process, you can contact the hotel or host and ask about the cleaning policies they have in place for the cold and flu season. If you still don’t feel satisfied, bring some Clorox essentials to work your own cleaning magic during your stay!

Disinfect The Bathroom

The bathroom is one of the most frequently used areas of any home or hotel. From the tub to the toilet to the counters and floors, bathrooms can always use some extra elbow grease to prevent the spread of bacteria during the cold and flu season. Clorox Disinfecting Wipes are the most effective and trusted disposable wet wipes that are specially designed to clean a variety of surfaces during your holiday stay. Just wipe the area, let the surface dry, and enjoy your staycation!

Bundle Up

Although a change in temperature doesn’t make you sick, exposure to colder, dry air can make you more susceptible to illness during the cold and flu season. If you’re traveling to a much colder climate than you’re used to, layer your clothing and stock up on fuzzy scarves to keep your sinuses moist in the cold air. Pro tip? Use Clorox Multi-Surface Disinfecting Mist to spray down your winter gear after spending time outdoors!

There’s nothing like escaping the noise of the city during the holidays. Stay healthier in your snowy paradise during cold and flu season with these cleaning hacks from Clorox!
