I always took pride in how chilled I was about germs — until this year! It seems like my boys have had way more than their fair share of colds and viruses! As we were leaving church on Sunday, my sister looked at me and laughed! I was repeating myself over and over, ‘We already used hand sanitizer, don’t touch anything!’ We all have our theories on keeping colds and flu away, my prevention favorites are hand sanitizer and Lysol spray.
After fretting way too much about hand sanitizer, I was reminded of the leading cause of cold and flu – airborne germs and viruses. We spend so much time indoors, especially when it’s this cold! Indoor air is up to five times more polluted than outdoor air — AWFUL, right! I am going to try the Fellowes AeraMax™ DX-55 Purifier, extremely helpful in cleaning the air during cold and flu season. You can buy it at BestBuy.com, prices start at $189.99. Reviews say that it is ultra quiet and has an automatic sensor that monitors the air quality and automatically adjusts the fan speed to keep your air purified. I can’t wait to let you know my opinion. For those of you, totally dreading the sickies, here is a great 4-step process to reduce cold and flu season risk. 1. Ask about a flu shot 2. Wash and sanitize hands regularly 3. Wipe down surfaces with powerful disinfectants 4. Purify the air indoors.
