    21 Things That'll Help You Fight The "War" Against Germs

    Cold and flu season can 🎶suck iiiiiiiiit🎶

    1. A pack of vitamin E filled hand sanitizer bottles for every room in your house, to refill your little bottles, and kill 99.99% of those disgusting germs that end up giving you a sore throat.

    2. A container of Clorox disinfecting wipes designed with no bleach, an amazing coconut and pacific breeze scent, and no harsh chemicals so you can target those germs without those harsh smells.

    3. A pack of Lysol disinfecting wipes filled with germ-fighting solution and available in a handy, travel-friendly pack to take on the go.

    4. A bottle of Tide anti-bacterial fabric spray to kill odor-causing bacteria and freshen up your clothes inbetween washes.

    5. A bottle of classic and gentle Softsoap antibacterial soap — 'cause on the battlefield of the great germ war, washing your hands (all. the. time.) is your best act of defense.

    6. A plug-in air purifier that uses UV C light to help kill airborne viruses (like influenza!!!!!) while it circulates and reduces odors caused by bacteria, your stinky pets, and delicious meals.

    7. A plant-based, non-toxic Babyganics toy and high-chair cleaner gentle enough to be safe for your kiddos but tough enough to have those germs running.

    8. And an alcohol-free anti-bacterial **toy** cleaner so great that over 800 people have given it a five-star review and used it to clean their most intimate of items.

    9. A copy of Germs Are Not for Sharing, a book designed to teach kiddos (and maybe some adults...just saying) the basics about how not to spread germs.

    10. A pack of super portable Purell wipes for next time you have to wipe down an airplane seat, a shopping cart...a general child.

    11. A pack of odor neutralizing Lysol Neutra Air sanitizing spray designed to disinfect and get rid of all the bacteria that are flying around — who knew bacteria had wings?

    12. A pressurized steam cleaner, a light and portable device designed with nine accessories to help you sanitize all sorts of services (ceramic tile, granite, waterproof wood flooring, laminate tiles, most cotton and wool carpets, and washable wallpaper) with no chemicals.

    13. A compact, three-speed HEPA Filter Air Purifier that'll easily fit on your tabletop while it reduces up to 99.97% of harmful germs, dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and other allergens as small as .3 microns...which is basically super tiny! Plus it uses UV-C light to help kill airborne viruses in rooms up to 78 square feet.

    14. A set of wrinkle-resistant hypoallergenic sheets made using a bamboo viscose fabric that inhibits bacteria — it's also moisture-wicking for all my fellow hot sleepers out there.

    15. A pack of delightfully adorable cotton facemasks so when that stranger on the bus coughs in your face, you know you'll be fine.

    16. A set of biodegradable fruit and vegetable wipes to get your greens sparkling clean before you chow down — they also help extend your produces life.

    17. A bottle of Bissell's deep clean and antibacterial carpet cleaner so you can finally get rid of that stain that's lived on your floor for too long — it also kills all that odor-causing bacteria you hate so much.

    18. A pack of disposable toilet seat covers designed to be a little bigger than normal so they hang over the sides, plus they have adhesive strips to make sure they stay in place.

    19. A super comfy, foldable two-in-one shopping cart and high chair cover that'll fit every standard and larger size shopping cart — it's also machine-washable so after it protects your kiddo from germs you can throw it in the wash to guarantee it does it again.

    20. A pack of 1200 antibacterial wipes so you can literally have enough wipes to clean every surface you ever touch.

    21. And a plunger — now hear me out! If you ride public transit, you know how disgusting the handles you **have** to hold on to can be, SO, instead, bring one of these with you, plunge it onto the ceiling and make your own handle! Safety from both falling AND getting a deadly virus from the jerk who hasn't washed his hands since the last time he grabbed his crotch.

    Next time a germ tries to get anywhere near you they can just...
