Contracting a stomach illness such as salmonella, E. coli, or norovirus is far from a pleasant experience. Mercifully, in most cases you’re likely to feel extremely poorly for a short time span only. However, a stomach illness like salmonella can require hospitalisation and a long recovery period. It can even be lethal if not rapidly and efficiently treated.
Something else that’s scary is how easily dangerous, unseen germs can spread to infect others. They can survive a surprisingly long time on surfaces within the home. Touching the hands of an infected person or touching something they’ve touched – such as toys, furniture or countertops – can pass on a serious stomach illness or other nasty bug. Which is why illness prevention in the form of effective home hygiene is absolutely vital. Protect your loved ones by cleaning regularly with an unstoppable germ killing product like Domestos Multipurpose Thick Bleach.
