When one of your children comes home from school with a cold, it's often just a matter of time before everyone else in the family is infected and the cold reaches each of you one by one. Once the whole family knows how to prevent the spread of colds, you can stop germs and their spread – so children will have to look for a new way not to go to school. Here are our best tips to prevent colds!
5 Ways to Prevent the Spread of a Cold
1. Wash your hands
The common cold is caused by a virus that spreads easily from person to person. Usually, you (or anyone who has a cold) will be infected until your symptoms disappear, which can take a week or two.
Cold germs can live up to 24 hours on your hands and on various surfaces, so regular hand washing is one of the most important ways to prevent the spread of a cold. Show children how to wash their hands thoroughly with soap and give them additional tips on how to hold soap when they are little.
Използвайте мокра кърпа, която съдържа антибактериален компонент, като Zewa Protect, за да почистите ръцете си и да спрете разпространението на микроби, когато сте в движение. Защитете вашият нос и устата си, когато кихате.
2. When pinching, cover your nose and mouth
Remind young children to try to avoid sneezing or coughing in front of other people and cover their mouth or nose with a handkerchief instead of their hands when sneezing. Show children how to blow their nose properly by catching the germs of the cold in a handkerchief and immediately throwing them into a garbage can.

3. Regularly clean surfaces and clothes to prevent a possible cold
Even after the whole family learns how to prevent the spread of colds with the advice above, sneezing can appear unexpectedly, and you will have forgotten your handkerchief on the couch. Therefore, it is important to regularly clean the house when someone is sick. You should always have a clean handkerchief at hand.
Furniture, kitchen surfaces and bathrooms are the easiest and most common places to clean, but don't forget about door handles, children's toys, remote controls and phones. Use a cleaning spray with paper towels that can be discarded, rather than a cloth that can be used repeatedly, which can spread a large range of germs. Just make sure you use strong and absorbent towels, such as Zewa, so that they are easiest to use when wiping and on the go. Use an antibacterial wet cloth for quick cleaning.
4. Want to prevent colds? Do not share
The problem is familiar to us – you spend a lot of time teaching your children how to be strong and share, and now you have to stop? But cold germs spread easily on surfaces in your home, so try to avoid sharing towels, plates of food, or household items when someone is sick. Consider providing a separate place for your child if there is a cold to reduce the chance of infecting others in the family.
Children are never too young to learn how to avoid a cold. Remind them to use and load their own handkerchiefs as germs can spread when using or simply touch another's handkerchief. Use towels, such as Zewa Protect, which contain an antibacterial agent and aloe vera. This will help reduce bacteria directly into the tissues to prevent them from spreading.
5. Prevention of colds begins with self-care
Even very sick children and parents can help prevent colds on other family members. Now let's talk about how to avoid colds if you feel good. Creating a good and strong immune system can help you prevent cold viruses. You can help yourself through a healthy diet, sports and plenty of sleep. The best protection is good hygiene, and there is nothing more threatening to the cold virus than proper health care.
