Keep Your Home Office Squeaky-Clean (and Germ-Free) With These Handy Tips

July 29, 2015 12:02 pm

Is your home office one of the messiest spaces in your rental home? Here are some easy ways to clean your gadgets and electronics — and keep your office tidy and germ-free.

  1. Start by organizing your pesky wires and cords. This will help prevent fire hazards and eliminate the unattractive mess.Invest in some sturdy clips from office supply stores to keep them neatly wound.
  2. Clean your keyboard. You can’t exactly spray your keyboard with disinfectant, but you can clean it by unplugging it and shaking out the loose dirt. Use canned, compressed air to remove the rest of the dust from between the keys, then give it a wipe-down with a cloth dampened with cleaner.
  3. Wipe off your computer screen. Use a bit of water and a lint-free cloth. Don’t use cleaner, as it may damage the screen.
  4. Disinfect your cell phone or landline phone. Do this regularly, as the germs from your mouth spread very easily. Use a disinfectant wipe all over the phone, being careful that no drips get inside of the phone itself.
  5. Dust. If you have allergies, be sure to dust shelves, floors, and your desk regularly to prevent dust particles from infiltrating your home office.

Hi Again Tera Residents,

Welcome to another edition of the "Meatless Monday" blog! This week, we are not highlighting a particular restaurant or recipe, but rather a fantastic resource for those who have adopted the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle, those who are looking for some healthy alternatives to their favorite recipes, or those who are just curious about vegetarian living in general! In short: everyone!

The website "Vegetarian Times" is an amazing collection of recipes and guides, all aimed at showcasing different vegetarian cooking techniques and delicious dishes, but also features a plethora of other information, ranging from lifestyle guides, to reviews of restaurants. They also host an online community and forum where individuals from around the world can swap stories or discuss their favorite recipes, and even feature news articles on developments within the world of vegetarian cuisine!

In short, the Vegetarian Times is a fantastic resource for anyone and everyone looking to learn more, or just try a brand new dish for dinner, and is always only a click away when you need it! You can visit the full site and check it out for yourself here: www.vegetariantimes.com.

Find a good recipe on the site, or an interesting article that you'd like us to explore further? Let us know in the comments, and we may feature it in a future blog post!
