There are various kinds of wipes easily available in the market that allow us to disinfect surfaces. You can wipe down all the places that you will be frequently are in contact with physically. This will make those surfaces less hazardous to be in contact with. You are most likely going to have maximum contact with your desk, computer and cell phone. You can wipe most of these without damaging them. Make sure that you wipe the door knobs as well so that germs stay away from them as well when you go to the washroom for washing hands. Also it is not a bad idea to wipe the elevator keys every now and again as they have been found to be with a lot of germs.

Clean Hands with Hand Sanitisers
Instead of washing your hands, you can also use hand sanitisers to kill the germs as well. Often these sanitisers are alcohol based and along with killing the germs, they leave a fresh feeling to the skin. The fragrance also makes you feel good. It is also suggested by some that you scrub your hands as it removes the organisms on the skin altogether.

Use Disposable Products
Researches have shown that the utensils in the kitchen of offices carry a fair amount of germs. This issue can be avoided by use of disposable products such as cup and plates. This will certainly minimise the presence of germs in your immediate office space and keep them away from your food which is unlikely to happen when you use office crockery. You can also bring your own utensils if you do not feel like using disposables and wash them before and after use.
