Shopping carts & baskets are among the germiest things around (think about the person that used the cart before you... Do you *really* want to know where their hands were before using that cart?!?). Most grocery and chain (Target, etc.) stores have antibacterial wipe dispensers next to the carts in the front of the store - Be Sure To Use Them!!! If your store doesn't have them - 1) Ask them to start, and 2) Take your own pocket size pack of wipes with you to the store until they do start.

Keep antibacterial hand sanitizer at your desk and in your purse. Besides using it on your hands, apply a dab on a tissue to wipe down your phone handset, mouse, keyboard and any other surfaces where germs can get transferred. I also keep one in my purse; it works well on public toilet seats and door handles. If used regularly you shouldn't catch as many colds.250
I spend a little more and buy Norwex products for cleaning. I like the antibacterial microfiber rags. The best part is these rags are meant to be used without cleaning products. All I do is use a small squirt bottle with water, and these rags. The best part is with using these rags you do not need cleaners or have to use papertowels, and they are antibacterial so good for getting rid of the germs!
