With all the news about super flu bugs, colds & flu epidemics, it’s now more important than ever to make sure that you are doing everything you can to keep surfaces clean and family members healthy. My husband and I are both allergic to various forms of antibiotics. For the most part, my husband is only allergic to penicillin. If he is given even a small amount, he goes into anaphylactic shock almost instantly. I am allergic to everything from penicillin to vancomycin…even a few of the childhood shots (the schools weren’t particularly happy with that one). My reactions vary from high fever to full body hives/rash & swelling, & I have to be immediately hospitalized if I get sick enough that I need something. Luckily, our daughter has been spared this so far & hasn’t had any reactions to what she has been given, but we don’t want to chance it.
In order to help ensure that no one gets sick, we do many things to keep germs at bay. I make sure to keep surfaces clean. My husband also gets a flu shot since he works in retail and is always the first to get anything. We also make sure to take vitamins, drink plenty of orange juice and keep hands clean. I keep a small bottle of hand sanitized in my bag as well for when we are out. There are plenty more things that you can do as well, and LYSOL is helping spread the word with it new initiative called Healthing.
You may have already seen some of the commercials about Healthing on tv the past few days. I’ve seen them running during show breaks on Nick Jr. The idea behind Healthing is to go beyond just cleaning and making sure that you are disinfecting. That way, there are fewer germs in your home and your family will be healthier. There are a variety of tips that you can follow in order to incorporate Healthing into your cleaning routine, including dusting & wiping down wall art, photographs and woodwork. You can find more tips from the Healthing guidebook.
LYSOL has also gotten the help of television personality Giuliana Rancic to help sprad the word about Healthing. She will be visiting select YMCA across the country to demonstrate Healthing and give attendees some hands-on education about the products and steps required to practice improved hygiene habits in their own home, while making the idea fun and relatable to kids. LYSOL will also provide educational information and disinfecting products to the local YMCAs, along with the donation of a one-year membership to a deserving family.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for LYSOL®. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
