As cold and flu season rears its ugly head in thousands of home across the US, it’s important to remember that you have the power to stop the cold or flu in its tracks in your home. Here are a few easy, quick tips that can help keep your home germ free, especially during this challenging time of year:
Wash Your Hands
Cold and flu viruses may be spread by indirect contact. Washing your hands is the best way to prevent getting sick, especially if you wash with an Antibacterial Soap. Keeping lots of Hand Sanitizer on hand is also a good bet for preventing illness.
Sanitize Common Areas
Doorknobs, toilets, trashcans, and countertops. These are the areas where germs can lurk and colds can be passed. To stop sickness in its tracks, use a disinfectant like Clorox to rid your home of bacteria, viruses, or other harmful germs. ToiletPaperWorld.com offers a great selection of disinfectants to help you get your home germ free.
Drink More Water
According to Webmed.com, water can help strengthen your immune system, keeping the flu at bay. And if you do get sick, water flushes your system, re-hydrates you and washes out the toxins. An adult should drink eight 8-ounce glasses of fluids each day. If the color of your urine is close to clear, then you are getting enough. If it’s deep yellow, drink more water.
