Cold weather has definitely arrived in the Bay Area, and of wouldn't you know it, the whole family celebrated by catching bad colds last month. We were all pretty miserable, so we're not really looking forward to repeating the experience. Our immune systems are already pretty tired from all the battles they've been through, and combined with the cold weather and the stress of the holidays, we have to be extra vigilant in staying healthy!
That's why eating right, staying warm, staying hydrated, and staying clean are all high priority items for everyone in our family. Fortunately, Wet Ones® sent us a Winter Survival kit filled with wipes for the car, my purse and our home, so we've got a huge ally in our fight against any future colds and flu. As the kids discovered when we did Bill Nye the Science Guy's Wet Ones® Healthy Hands Zone experiments last December, it's all too easy for bacteria to grow and multiply, so they know how important it is for them to wash their hands (or wipe them with antibacterial wipes when they can't get to soap and water). They love the smell of Wet Ones (and the clean feeling their hands get afterwards), so it's not difficult for me to get them to wash or wipe their hands.
To help families stay healthy this season, Wet Ones® has brought Mom Expert Stacy DeBroff and Germ Expert Dr. Tanner together to come up with The Twice as Handy Guide:
Who doesn’t love the holidays? From the parties and presents to the delicious food and the time we get to spend with those we love, there’s a reason it’s called the most wonderful time of the year. But the holidays also bring crowded indoor parties, stressful travel on packed airplanes and increased time spent shopping at germ-infested malls and stores—do you know how many hands have touched those escalator handrails!? On top of all these elements, as the weather becomes colder cold and flu bugs become most active, and in between all the hustle and bustle it’s important to protect yourself and your family so you can spend more time celebrating and less time sick at home.
Happy holidays, and stay healthy!
