In brief: Hand washing
The best way to prevent spread of MRSA is good hygiene and frequent hand washing.
Antibacterial soaps, alcohol hand washes, disinfecting sprays, etc. All can help eliminate the colony count of MRSA on your body and surfaces around the house. If someone in your house has MRSA exposure or infection, do a good cleaning of the house and always wash your hands well.
