Top 5 Surprising Ways To Avoid Getting Sick

Posted By Staff

Date: January 25th, 2017

SICK1. Wash your washing machine
Sure you wash your clothes to kill germs, but when was the last time you washed your washing machine.
Bacteria and fungus can build up over time especially in the seals of front-loading washing machines.
Many manufactures offer a specialized cleaner, although two tablespoons of white vinegar will also do the trick. Just put the white vinegar where the detergent usually goes and run the clean cycle.
Most manufactures recommend you do this one a month.

2. Avoid alcohol
Too much alcohol can depress your immune system which make you more susceptible to colds.
Plus, if you’re already sick, some doctors say even a single drink can prolong a virus for several more days.  More

The anti-venom program was now at risk after too few spiders were donated last year and a recent heatwave encouraged more spider activity and bites, the park’s general manager, Tim Faulkner, said on Tuesday.  More
