This year, we've seen the worst flu season in
six years. In fact, because of the type of flu strain that seems to have
reached near-epidemic status, of those who received a flu vaccine, only six out
of ten will avoid getting the flu. The good news is if you do get the
vaccine and still contract the flu, your symptoms are said to be much milder.
Even so, no one wants to be down and out for a week to ten days with this
type of illness, so it's important to protect yourself as much as you can.
That means frequently washing your hands, avoiding touching your face as
much as possible, and taking extra precautions to clean the air and surfaces
you come in contact with on a regular basis. That includes using
anti-bacterial wipes on your desk and phone at work, and making sure you have a
cell phone screen, too.
How Do You Get The Flu?
Experts believe that you get the flu by coming into contact with someone who has the flu. If that person sneezes or coughs, the germs travel through the air and the droplets land in your nose or mouth. However, those airborne water droplets can also land on the surfaces around you. That makes it really easy to get sick with the virus. The statistics demonstrate a need for additional precautions to be taken, including cleaning things you touch regularly, like your cell phone.
Maintain A Clean Cell Phone Screen
During flu season, you might want to avoid allowing a stranger or even a friend to use your cell phone. However, that simple action isn't going to keep your cell phone free from any particles that might be in the air. Pristine Screens makes it easy for you to make sure you have a clean cell phone screen during flu season with our screen cleaners. You can choose between our Pristine Travel Cloths, which can be kept right in your purse, pocket, or a drawer in your desk, and our Pristine Sticky Screen Cleaners, which adhere to the back of your phone for easy access.
Our Pristine Travel Cloths can be tossed into your washing machine periodically to ensure that they stay clean. Simply wash with like materials, and avoid bleach, fabric softeners and dryer sheets for the best results. Pristine Sticky Screen Cleaners are an easy alternative, and they come in a variety of designs.
Think about how often you use your cell phone during the day, touching it to your face and hands. Even if you set it down on a table, or leave it in your open purse, airborne germs can come into contact with it. Microfiber is the best choice for cleaning your cell phone because it uses an electrical charge to attract and remove particles, dirt and germs.
