The Top 5 Items to Stop the Spread of Germs

The Top 5 Items to Stop the Spread of Germs

We're well into fall, and you know what that means: cold & flu season is upon us. Everywhere you look, people are coughing and sneezing, and things probably aren't that different at home if you've got a full house. As people stay indoors to ward off the cold, they're in close quarters with germs far more often. In crowded settings like work or school, germs can seem unavoidable, and carrying them back home is a natural result. But you don't have to settle for sickness. You and your family can do some simple things every day to keep your living and work spaces free of germs! We've compiled a top five list of products that will help you out.

1. Molded Blue Face Masks

Dynarex Molded Blue Face Masks Respiratory Infection Germ Spread

Germs aren't just on surfaces. Many pathogens are airborne, and easily spread by coughing or sneezing. So whether you're trying to stay healthy or you already have a sickness, one of the best ways to stop respiratory infections from spreading is a proper face mask. These Dynarex molded blue face masks are shaped to fit your face's contours, and feature an adjustable aluminum nose piece and flared, soft edges to guarantee a snug yet comfortable fit. They feature a molded, cone-shaped design and are made of cool, soft materials to ensure superior comfort all day. If you work or travel in close, crowded quarters, these fluid resistant, glass-free, filtered masks are the optimal choice to stay safe from respiratory infection.

2. Sani-Cloth Plus Disposable Germ Wipes

Sani-Cloth Plus Disposable Wipes Germ Spread Disinfectant Cold and Flu Season

Disinfecting surfaces is one of the most important germ-killing steps you can take. Most of the surfaces and objects you touch on a regular basis are shared with other people or used by you multiple times a day - think of computer keyboards, light switches, steering wheels, remote controls, doorknobs, refrigerator door handles, and your tables and counters. Make a list of what items in your house and workplace get used on an average day, and make sure to wipe them down with these hospital-grade, germicidal, disposable wipes! Sani-Cloth Plus Wipes are alcohol-based, and while they're powerful enough to kill germs in a medical facility, they're safe to use even on children's toys. Protect your home from the flu with these sanitizing wipes!

3. VioNex PCMX Antimicrobial Liquid Hand Soap

VioNex Antimicrobial Liquid Hand Soap Disinfectant Antiseptic Stop Germs

It may not be practical to spend the day wiping down surfaces, especially in busy places like your office or your child's school. Luckily you have options to keep yourself safe, and the most effective choice is something you may take for granted: hand washing! We celebrated Clean Hands Week recently, but we're always willing to take a moment to extol the virtues of the most effective and inexpensive way to stop the spread of infectious diseases. And proper hand washing depends on a good soap. This antimicrobial liquid hand soap contains PCMX (chloroxylene), an antiseptic and disinfectant found on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines. PCMX is proven to effectively kill germs in 30 seconds, and VioNex's non-drying formula is mild on the skin. Disinfect your hands without irritating sensitive skin with this antimicrobial soap.

4. Purell Original Hand Sanitizer

 Purell Original Hand Sanitizer 8 oz Disinfectant Germ Killing Spread

Sometimes you just don't have a bathroom available, especially when using public transportation. And you may not have time to run to a sink, especially after handling common and typically germ-contaminated objects like cell phones and money. Luckily, there's a convenient solution readily available: hand sanitizer, and more specifically, Purell Original Hand Sanitizer! Available in an easily transportable 8 oz container, Purell Sanitizer eliminates 99.99% of the most common germs in as little as 15 seconds. When you're stuck at your desk, in a car, or on the train, a bottle of Purell is the ideal option to kill germs conveniently.

5. Airborne Dual-Action Beta Immune System Booster

Airborne Dual Action Beta-Immune System Booster Cold and Flu Season

Avoiding germs is important, but keeping yourself healthy enough to be ready for them is crucial. You can't evade or disinfect every single microorganism, but you can make your body strong enough to fight them off. Proper exercise, rest, and a healthy diet will ensure the effective functioning of your body, but during cold and flu season, why not give your immune system some help? Airborne Duel Action Tablets are packed with Vitamins A, C, and E, vital to maintaining cellular function and growth, as well as Beta-immune booster (yeast fermentate), which supports immune system functioning. Boost your immune system and be ready to fight off any sickness you encounter!

These are only some of the items available at Mountainside Medical to stop the spread of germs and improve your immune health. We have products available for all stages of cold and flu season, whether you're trying to avoid illness or fight off an inconvenient cold.
