So the cold and flu season is upon us.
According to the office for nation statistics 27 million days of work are missed each year due to colds. Furthermore, close to 15 million school days are missed a year, due to illnesses alone. That is a huge amount!
During cold and flu season, infection can spread on unclean surfaces. With flu virus living on surfaces for up to 2 days and the cold virus up to 7 days, it is important to keep surfaces disinfected and clean as possible to prevent the spread of illness. I am by no means a clean freak. I do like to keep my home clean but I obviously have moments where it’s not possible to keep everything clean. I do however use Dettol all around my home, I have for many years. We do catch colds but they definitely don’t stick around as long as usual and we don’t get them very often, I think Dettol has a lot to do with this.
