Vicks on, cough gone!

Vicks on, cough gone!

Cold and flu viruses are in the air all day, every day! Even now, they are making themselves at home in the safety of your household and you didn’t even hear them knock at the door. Protect your nest and loved ones from uninvited guests that bring only misery and illness with these time-honored tips

  • Take the flu shot – the single best way to get close to being flu-proof. It takes two weeks after vaccination for the shot to work so do it in early October before flu season starts. You will still need to ask the Doctor if the whole family can get the flu shot.
  • Set a strict hand-washing rule – the easiest way to fend off the cold, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. Hand-to-hand and hand-to-surface contact are the two fastest ways to spread a virus.
Everyone (especially the kiddies!) must soap, rinse and dry (on a paper towel, if possible) their hands as soon as they enter the door, after bathroom breaks, after sneezing, and before meals – no ifs and buts. Leave hand sanitizers in high-contact areas far from the sink.

    • Disinfect hot spots. Wipe off bugs from ‘high-traffic areas’ such as sinks, tap handles, doorknobs, countertops, desks, light switches, keyboards and most especially, phones and remote controls with disinfectant wipes. Don’t give bugs/germs a free ride ‘round your home – sanitize dust rags, dishrags, mops and sponges between uses. And please, use paper hand towels instead.

    • Keep your hands (cutlery and glass) to yourself. Avoid serving food communally. Use serving spoons in all meals and drink only from your own glass. When sharing snacks, hands off inside the bag!

    • Issue tissues. Teach your li’l ones to sneeze into a tissue and to toss ‘em into the trash ASAP. Dot your home with stash boxes in key spots and send off red-nosed snifflers with a handy travel pack.

FINALLY... If a cold virus still does slip in, it’s time to bring out your secret– Vicks VapoRub.
     Nurse the whole family back to health using Vicks VapoRub for symptomatic relief as an inhaler or rub on massage, or both. When the man of the house begins acting like a child, mix a bowl of hot water and Vicks VapoRub for instant relief or lovingly apply Vicks VapoRub on your coughy little one’s chest and back before bedtime.
