Hydrogen Peroxide (3%) is an inexpensive, non-toxic cleaner. Buy a small hydrogen peroxide spray bottle at WalMart, then refill it with larger bottles from Sam’s Club or Costco. If you using your own spray bottle, make sure it is opaque like the brown bottles it comes in, as it reacts to light.
Use hp to clean almost anything in the house, from walls to carpet, cutting boards to showers and toilets. It is said that following the hp cleaner with a spray bottle of vinegar and water cleans as good as bleach. Remember to disinfect whatever gets touched: doorknobs, keyboards, faucets and toilet flushing levers.

Warning: sugar inhibits the immune system!
Eating or drinking 100 grams (8 tbsp.) of sugar, the equivalent of one 12-ounce can of soda, can reduce the ability of white blood cells to kill germs by forty percent. The immune-suppressing effect of sugar starts less than thirty minutes after ingestion and may last for five hours.
Helpful Tips for Preventing the Flu
1. Frequent hand-washing.
2. “Hands-off-the-face” approach. Resist all temptations to touch any part of face.
3. Gargle twice a day with warm salt water (use Listerine if you Don’t trust salt). H1N1 takes 2-3 days after initial infection in the throat/ nasal cavity to proliferate and show characteristic symptoms. Simple gargling prevents the virus from spreading.
4. Clean your nostrils at least once every day with warm salt water. Blowing the nose hard once a day and swabbing both nostrils with Cotton buds dipped in warm salt water is very effective in bringing down viral population.
5. Boost your natural immunity with foods that are rich in Vitamin C. If you have to supplement with Vitamin C tablets, make sure that it also has Zinc to boost absorption.
6. Drink as much of warm liquids as you can. Drinking warm liquids has the same effect as gargling, but in the reverse direction. They wash off viruses from the throat into the stomach where they cannot survive, multiply, or do any harm.
