How To Stop That Cold Cycle At Home

Do you and your family feel like getting that cold after cold being passed around at home? You can follow these tips to end the insanity:

As soonas you feel better, dispose your toothbrushes and get a new one. Old ones can harbor germs and aid passing sickness from person to person. Store toothbrushes at least an inch apart with each other to prevent cross contamination.

Launder your sheets and towels with hot water once or twice a week. Don't "hug" them when picking them up on the way to the laundry room, and don't forget to wash your hands after handling them.
Provide one towel for each family member.

Use household disinfectant to sanitize common surfaces like fridge handles, car-door handles, counters, doorknobs, TV remotes, phones, computer workstations, etc... Wipe them down several times a day before each use.
