Lysol Teaches Us a Thing or Two About Germs



 lysol mission of health

Germs are enough to make you wanna run for the hills. Being a mom means you try to be prepared for anything. However, sometimes germs sneak up on us and we are not prepared enough. It’s time to do something about stopping the flu! The last thing our families need is something making us sick during one of the most fun times of the year. Lysol’s Flu-Free program is preparing families for germ season and teaching my family and yours how to remain healthy.

Staying healthy is important and Lysol wants to help. There is no better way to help than chatting with a real live expert.

Lysol is offering a free expert live chat with Dr. Laura Jana next Thursday, Nov. 17th @ 2pm CST/3pm EST. The title of the chat is called: Expert Advice for Keeping your Family Healthy During Cold & Flu Season



Steering clear of germs is highly important but so is the flu shot. Will you join us on the The Great American Flu Shot Challenge?

Lysol presents Staying Flu-Free can be as easy as 1-2-3, with these 3 tips:

1. Get a flu shot (as the CDC recommends)

2. Wash your hands with soap and water. Scrub thoroughly for 20 seconds

3. Routinely clean and disinfect surfaces

Since Lysol understands that vaccination is the first step for protection against the flu, they are offering a $5 rebate towards your flu shot. Furthermore, they’ve created the Great American Flu Shot Challenge that could reward you for helping to spread awareness of the importance of getting a flu shot. It is easy to create a flu-free network with your Facebook friends. Just share the Flu Fighter Badge listed under the ‘Flu Shot Challenge’ tab on the Lysol Facebook page and $5 flu shot rebate info to join the challenge and remind your digital friends and family that it’s that time to get their yearly flu shot. The person with the most friends in their flu-free network by Dec. 5th could win a $1,500 grand prize.

Will you join us in this germ free challenge? Now is the time to get healthy and teach our kids how to stay health.

Win It!

Lysol wants you to get involved in fighting the flu this season and has provided one $50 AMEX card for one lucky Cocktails with Mom reader.

    As Mark Good I asked; Do I need to do any kind of scrubbing to get rid of flu causing germs, or does a quick wipe kill them already? Here is the link:

  35. I am amazed at how little people know about how germs are spread. It’s like they don’t quite realize it and then wonder, “How did I get so sick??!”
