It is that time of year where everyone is prone to getting sick. When the weather is bad outside, we tend to stay inside and pass germs. There are some things you can do, to help prevent the sharing of germs. 

Change your filters--that includes your furnace filter and in newer cars a filter (not the air cleaner) that your A/C and heat run through. If you don't know where that filter is, stop by your local jiffy lube place and they can show you.

Toss that old toothbrush and switch to a new one. Frequently pour some mouthwash over it to kill those cold germs.

Add some vinegar or bleach to your dishwasher when washing dishes. (Or to the sink if washing by hand).

Wipe down those frequently touched surfaces that get ignored from daily cleaning--such as light switches, can opener, lighters, door knobs, remote controls, telephones, cabinet knobs, computers, stair railings, stove knobs, sink handles....and don't forget the car--steering wheel, door handles, radio knobs....

Watch for those dirty public places--use a wipe to clean before touching grocery carts, elevator buttons, gas pumps, bathrooms, menus....

Teach family members to cover when they cough or sneeze.

Don't share drinks or food.

If you can, get outside for a few minutes each day. If you can't get out, open a couple of windows for a few minutes each day to get some air circulation.

The best of all, is what your mother always told you. Wash your hands with soap and running water, for at least 30 seconds at a time. Do it often, especially after touching shared surfaces, blowing your nose (or your child's), touching your face.....
