The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and the apples are ripe for the picking. It’s clear that fall is upon us. While this is one of the most beautiful and charming seasons, it also marks the beginning of a less enjoyable season: flu season. Every year, as the temperatures begin to drop, there is an outbreak of influenza, leading to about 3 to 5 million cases of severe illness worldwide. While certain factors that contribute to this outbreak are somewhat unavoidable, such as spending more time indoors or colder temperatures preserving viruses longer, there are a few things you can do to try to keep you and your family safe from the flu. Oh, and we can help. Here’s how.
Keep Your Hands Clean
One of the easiest and most effective ways to ward off the flu is to get in the habit of regularly washing your hands, especially before making food, eating and of course, after using the bathroom. For the best possible clean, our award-winning Foaming Soap is the perfect thing to keep in your kitchen or bathroom. It kills 99.9% of germs and provides over 1000 uses.
For times when soap and water are unavailable, the best thing you can do is carry a bottle hand sanitizer with you to use throughout the day. This is especially important after touching high traffic surfaces like doorknobs, counters and light switches.
Our sanitizer lasts up to 6 hours and kills 99.9% of germs it comes in contact with, making it perfect for flu protection. Plus, with wipes, gel, foaming soap and on-the-go spray, we literally have a hand sanitizer for everyone and everywhere.
Another easy way to reduce your risk of getting the flu is to thoroughly clean and disinfect surfaces in your home or workplace. Again, this could mean doorknobs, counters, telephones, light switches and any other frequently touched surfaces.
Our disinfectant and cleaner is botanically derived, making it safe for all surfaces. It also kills viruses in 1 minute, 10x faster than other natural cleaners. There’s no better way to keep you and your family safe than using the fast powerful clean of our thymol-based disinfectant.
It’s no secret that it’s important to wear masks these days in highly populated areas or when you’re feeling sick to help keep things from spreading.
So whether you’re experiencing symptoms yourself, or just trying to ward off any chance of getting sick, wearing a mask is a helpful practice especially in the colder months.
Our triple-layered mask actually kills germs inside and out using antimicrobial silver ion technology. It’s super comfortable and the best way to protect yourself and others during flu season.
