Every year when the weather chills enough to start wearing coats, I know we’re also entering cold and flu season. *sigh*
We can’t control which germs we come in contact with, but knowing the basics of cold and flu prevention helps fight them off!
2. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for 20 seconds. (We sing the Jingle Bells chorus which takes us 16 seconds, then we add a few whoops and hollers at the end.)
3. Routinely clean and disinfect your surfaces. (Don’t forget door handles, light switches, keyboards, drawer pulls, etc.)
Ok, so that’s about all I know about prevention, and although it’s a great start, I’ve got questions. Fortunately, there are experts like Dr. Laura Jana, and she’ll be doing a live chat on Lysol’s Facebook page November 17, 2011 at 2pm CST/3pm EST where everyone is invited to pick her brain and get some answers!
Don’t even pretend you don’t have questions. Come on now!
Since I don’t want to be the only one bothering her with questions, I need you guys to pipe in with some of your own, and if you do, you’ll be entered into a giveaway for a $50 American Express Gift Card!
I received a gift card to thank me for taking the time to write the post, and all opinions within it belong entirely to me.
