WFMW: (so far) Vicks Early Defense

You've read my philosophy before - "you play, you pay!" As much as we love the Children's Museum, it seems like we get sick every single time we go there.

Well, BJ and I took the girls on 12/30, and we were religious in our application of Vicks Early Defense. I think we put it on 3 times in the 4 hours we were there. So far (knock on wood) we are cold, flu, and virus free!

Rest assured that if this situation changes, I will complain about it on this very blog. You might want to check back in a few days. But since it's been almost four days, I feel fairly confident recommending this product to keep you and your family healthy this winter!

Sorry, I was unclear - this is not just hand sanitizer - this stuff is supposed to protect you from 99.9% of germs for three hours into the future, unlike Purell which, I guess, just works on the germs you've already picked up. It's psychic hand sanitizer! And so far, so good...

is it hand sanitizer? If it is then I carry a little bottle in my purse to do our hands when we are out and about.

We went to a children's musuem on Saturday. So, far we are all healthy!

It's psychic hand sanitizer! It works on germs for three hours into the future, not just the germs you have on your hands when you use it (or so the label claims).

I've carried Purell for a long time, but this stuff is new (as far as I know) this winter.

Sorry, that wasn't at all clear, was it? :)
