Clean Commuting

Man commuting on a bicycle

If you take public transportation, this is a place where germs can spread quickly, especially during cold and flu season. Washing your hands before and after your commute can help.

If you bike to work, be sure to wash any grease off your hands when you get to work. If you’ve gotten grease on your clothes, take care of the stain until you have a chance to go home and do laundry (always following the fabric care label). Dab a very small amount of liquid hand soap on the spot with your finger tip or towel, working from the outside in. Scrub gently with your fingernail if necessary! Rinse, then blot with a damp  towel. Finally, blot with a dry towel until it’s dry enough to get back to work!
