Help Your Family Stay Healthy This Winter With LYSOL®! #Lysol #Giveaway #Ad

*I participated in this campaign on behalf of Lysol®. I received a promotional item to facilitate this post and as a thank you item for participating.  All opinions are my own.

    It never fails, every winter, my husband manages to escape unscathed from colds and the Flu while the rest of us in the house quickly infect one another.  Unfortunately, it is inevitable that germs eventually make their way into our home since I teach in a school and both of our boys are in school.  No matter how hard we try to ward off getting sick, one of us always starts that chain reaction where we get sick one after the other.

    The question then becomes how Hubby manages to keep those germs at bay while the rest of us suffer miserably until the infection in the house runs its course.  Here are some of his tips for helping your family to stay healthy this winter and giving those germs a run for their money:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water often.  He really loves using Lysol® Touch of Foam Antibacterial Hand Wash because it has a creamy texture and contains micro bubbles that deliver moisturizer to his skin and don’t dry out his hands.
  • Clean surfaces around the house that come in contact with lots of hands and faces including the telephone receiver, doorknobs, and light switches using Lysol® Disinfectant Spray.  He loves Lysol® Spray because it kills 99.9% of Viruses and Bacteria.
  • Use Lysol® Power & Free Multi-Purpose Wipes to clean up messes such as when our son had a stomach virus last week and vomited all over the couch.  Since they have a fresh scent, and also kill 99.9% of germs, they are perfect for those tough and yucky messes.

    In the end, the common theme in his list of tips for power punching those germs is constant disinfecting.  Whether you are washing your hands or wiping those germs off surfaces, it’s important to help stop the spread of flu germs by practicing proper cough and sneeze etiquette.

    We can all do this by staying away from sick people, and staying home if we get sick.  For those times when germ exposure is inevitable, like in the case of busy moms and dads taking care of sick kids, Lysol® is there to help you kick those pesky germs to the curb!

Let’s Discuss:  How do you protect your family from cold and flu season during the winter months?

  1. Terry My Journey With Candida says

    I do a lot of hand washing during the winter, plus… I sometimes put a little bleach in my dish water to kill all the cold germs that anyone might have. Seems to work.

  2. It probably helps that I no longer have too many clients and I have no kids but I haven’t caught the flu bug since 1980 or so when they forced me to get the shot! Disinfecting is very important especially if you are in constant contact with others–Lysol brand has always been my go to brand!

  3. I push a lot more handwashing and making them get the flu shot.

  4. Handwashing is a “must” at our house. I also use tons of essential oils and probiotics to boost our immune systems 🙂

  5. Lysol is a staple in our house. Having 2 school aged kids, disinfecting is a top priority around here. Keeping on top of that has been the key to sick free days around here.

  6. We stay stocked up on Lysol! We all got our flu shots this year too!

  7. We use a lot of Lysol all year round trying to keep germs at bay and wash our hands a lot!

  8. JadeLouise Designs says

    It really is important to kill those germs around the house! I got sick last month, and didn’t have the energy to clean and get those germs killed. So just as I was recovering, I got his with the same cold again a few days later and went through another 2 weeks of it. This time, now that I”m starting to feel good, I’m going around and killing all of those germs. I don’t have time to be sick for another 2 weeks any more.

  9. nickie burke says

    We use lot’s of lysol, hand wash and tissues

  11. To help protect my family from colds and flu, we do lots of handwashing. I also try to see that everyone gets enough sleep so that they arent feeling run down.

  12. Sandy VanHoey says

    We use a lot of handsoap, we do spray lysol dinsinfecting spray often and we also use and love their wipes. We try to keep doorknobs, etc. cleaned regularly because the kids keep passing colds around,

  13. Ugh. We’re not doing enough here! My son started with a runny nose and cough yesterday. Once I put him to bed last night, I washed all of the floors and sprayed everything that didn’t have legs with Lysol! Hopefully, we caught it before the rest of us get sick!

  14. I feel a cold coming on right now. I’m sure my son brought it home from school. Luckily he rarely gets sick, he just carries the germs to me!

  15. I honestly could not live my life without Lysol! I’m kinda one of those germophobes, so having Lysol products in my house is a must!

  16. Meagan Bailiff says

    we don’t do much to protect ourselves, but we wipe shopping carts with disinfecting wipes at the store and have our daughter wash her hands and sneeze or cough into her elbow. We kind of believe the germs are good for us haha. but after we do get sick, we use lysol to disinfect so we don’t get sick again.

  17. During the winter months I try to keep my family healthy by reminding everyone to wash their hands. I also use bleach wipes on surfaces throughout my house. Eating right and drinking water is another way that we try to stay healthy.

  18. I am intentional in buying Vitamin C products. I make sure the kids are dressed right (Including sending snowpants with the younger one for outdoor recess). I also make sure they’re eating right and getting enough sleep. Every little bit helps!

  19. To help protect my family I make them wash their hands a lot. I try to also get them to go outside for fresh air as much as possible. Using Lysol is also a must! Thanks
