It’s that time of the year. Germ season.
The time when my two boys tend to bring home every germ they come into contact with at school, on the playground, or during their sports games. Especially the 3 year old, since he tends to suck two of his fingers for comfort.
To help keep my family feeling good, I make sure to stock up on the best weapons for germ season. We have a basket in our bathroom closet, high up so the boys can’t reach it. During the winter months, it stays packed with our best defenses against germs.
I call it our Ultimate Germ Fighting Basket.
Building your own Ultimate Germ Fighting Basket
If you wish to build your own Ultimate Germ Fighting Basket, you must first get the right products to fill it. I head to Kroger to find everything I need to keep the germs at bay. During the month of November, you can take advantage of savings for the products you need to ward off seasonal sniffles.
The following are six items I am always sure to keep in our germ fighting basket…
1. Breathe Right Strips
Use these to relieve nasal congestion so you can breathe easier. A single strip can be easily applied before bed to keep your nasal passages open and help you sleep better.
2. Dial Foaming Soap
You have to constantly be washing your hands if you want to stay well during germ season! Dial Hand Soap and its antibacterial agents kill 99.9% of germs**, helping to keep your family healthy. We like Dial because it also leaves our hands feel soft and hydrated – which is always a plus during the dry Winter air!
3. Halls Cough Drops
When germs start to attack your throat, it’s common for you to get that painful, scratchy feeling. Soothe the irritation with Halls drops. We keep the basket stocked with these during germ season, and grab a few for our pockets when things get really bad.
4. Kleenex Anti-Viral Tissues
Thankfully, both of my boys have learned to use a tissue to blow their nose anytime, but especially during germ season. Kleenex is the only brand we keep in our home. I especially love the Anti-Viral line, since it kills 99.9% of germs and viruses once they land in the tissue.
Yay for less chance of the germs spreading!
5. Theraflu ExpressMax Severe Cold & Flu Caplets
Sometimes no matter how prepared we are, germ infiltration is inevitable. Thankfully, we stay stocked with medication that will help to relieve symptoms and shorten the time we are down.
Theraflu ExpressMax Severe Cold & Flu Caplets gives us the power to feel better without a prescription. It helps to treat the sore throat, nasal congestion, chest congestion, fever, cough, headache, and body aches we may feel when germs have made their way into our bodies. Theraflu is to be used by those 12 and older.
6. TYLENOL® Cold + Flu Severe Day/Night
Yet another line of defense during germ season. This medication provides relief from common cold and flu symptoms. We are a TYLENOL® family already, so it’s no wonder why we stock our germ fighting basket with meds from the #1 doctor recommended brand for pain relief.
