The dry desert air is getting cooler as the fall weather settles in. The days are shorter, the sunsets are pinker, and the air smells like firewood as people start lighting their fireplaces to keep warm during the cooler nights. Cozier nights and winter cuddles are guaranteed during the colder weather as are the inevitable sniffles. This cold and flu season, we’re using Vicks Humidifiers to help us stay healthy so we can focus on enjoying our fall traditions rather than hiding from germs.
We swear by the Vicks® VapoPads with our Vicks® Mini Filter Free Cool Mist Humidifier; especially when one of our kiddos gets sick. When one of them gets a cough, we set up the humidifier in their room, pop in a VapoPad, and let the menthol vapors run overnight to soothe their dry throats.
When more than one kid is sick, it can be hard to keep track of temperatures and who needs medicine when, so we rely on our Vicks® SmartTemp™ Wireless Thermometer that allows us to set up tracking for each family member using the app on our mobile phones. We can also set up reminders for medicine doses, use a temperature reference chart, and even get advice for colds and flu.
We keep our humidifier clean during uses with a Protec Humidifier Antimicrobial Cleaning Fish because we get some heavy use between five kiddos during cold, cough, and flu season. The fish features a patented antimicrobial, Aqua stat, that helps keeps our humidifier cleaner for longer and helps to kill up to 99% of odor causing bacteria.
Stocking up on plenty of Puffs Plus® Lotion and Vicks® VapoRub™ Topical Ointment to get us through the fall and winter season and to help soothe runny noses and coughs.
Our Vicks® Healthcheck hygrometer displays a room’s temperature and humidity level to help provide information we need to control our environment for optimum healing and relief. Did you know that the ideal relative humidity level for wellness is between 40% and 60%? Our monitor helps us to ensure the proper level while we’re getting over colds and flu.
