Lots of honey, garlic, and cinnamon. Plus I make a spray of rubbing alcohol, tea tree oil, oregano oil, and some smell good oils (that are also microbial in their own right) that I spray everywhere!

I had heard that a mix of honey and cinnamon were supposed to help alleviate a cold so I gave it a try and thought it worked pretty good! I also found another concoction that is supposed to help with sickies that I can't seem to find at the moment.

We have lots of hand washing and Lysol spray at the moment.

We homeschool! One of the great benefits is that we don't have every cold, flu and virus drug home. Cleaning wise there isn't anything special I do.

We do a number of things: We use lots of hand sanitizer, and carry it everywhere we go. We use anti-bacterial hand soap. Take our multivitamins and eat healthy. That is really about it. We hardly ever get sick over at our house which is nice. My husband and I usually switch every winter who gets sick. Two winters ago, he got sick. I got sick last winter. (If that continues, then I guess it is his turn this winter to get sick) Although, when we do get sick, we get really sick.
