Well, this week has been loads of fun for me and my entire family!!  It all started Monday morning around 1am.  I try not to post about it because I HATE seeing other people post about who's sick on their Facebook.  But, I've tried really hard to prevent the crap from hitting my house.  But now, I'm starting to think these 'old wives tales' are hogwash and that old wives don't know jack!

So in my house, we have been using apple cider vinegar to keep the germs at bay.  I've seen it suggested by multiple people.  Almost on a daily basis, we will take shots of it and have been doing this for months.  Yes, even the kids.  But did it work?

The germs hit the house this week.  Maybe the vinegar didn't prevent it, but perhaps it didn't have the power it seems to be having on other households and for that I'm grateful.

Remedies or no remedies, you need to brace yourself for this.  Much like a winter storm.  Keep your pantry stocked with 3 days worth of 'Flu Food' like:

  • Saltines
  • Bread
  • Chicken soup/broth
  • Water
  • Ginger Ale
  • Gatorade
  • Orange Juice

Also, keep paper towels in EVERY room of the house for any 'unplanned' blow outs.  Trust me!!  Also, purchase stock in Lysol, Bleach and Kleenex...you'll thank me later!

So, I want to know what other home remedies you use to keep your house 'healthy'.  Comment below or on our Facebook page
