15. Always wash your hands after touching anything from the outside

I do still wipe down grocery items that need to be refrigerated or frozen right away (just because I'm a little crazy), and leave other items to sit out for 2-3 days before putting in the pantry and/or using.

But either way I wash my hands thoroughly, and wipe down any surfaces such as refrigerator door handles, counters, or faucets that have come into contact with products or my hands.

As for canned goods, I think that for at least 30 years I have never opened a canned good without rinsing the top in hot water before opening it. This habit was developed not for COVID or for germs in general, but because supermarkets sometimes use pesticides or disinfectants in their stores, and you don't want a can lid to touch the contents inside. It only takes a few seconds to rinse a can before opening it.

Frankly, I think clorox-wiping egg cartons and ice cream containers is really nuts. But I do it any way. As the old joke goes: "It couldn't hoit!"
