Beware This Airport Germ Hot Spot

A group of Finnish and British scientists found more traces of flu and other viruses in the trays in the security area than in any other location in the airport- even the toilets. Nothing that these trays are handled by nearly all embarking passengers and aren’t disinfected routinely at every airport, the scientists recommend using hand sanitizer before and after passing through.

Handle Car Lights with Care

When changing exterior light bulbs in your car, watch your hands. Many automobiles use halogen bulbs, which can get extremely hot. Hold them with gloved hands or a paper towel. That will also keep the glass free from the oils on your skin, which can create an uneven heat transfer in the bulb and cause it to fail prematurely. If you do accidentally touch the glass on a new bulb, clean it with a cloth and some rubbing alcohol.
