Battle Cold & Flu Season with Help from DealDash

It’s almost the end of September, and we are quickly entering cold & flu season. Let’s check our bathrooms and make sure that we have everything we need.

The first item I think that you should have in your sickroom supplies is a thermometer. Otherwise how will you know how sick (or not) you really are? I personally won a really awesome talking thermometer from DealDash a while back. It’s the best thermometer that I have ever had because it will give you a temperature reading in less than 10 seconds, and you can take your temperature in the dark because it announces the temperature when it’s done. DealDash also has forehead thermometers, which are great for taking a child’s temperature even when they are sleeping.

Another great item to stock your sick supplies with is tissues. Every sick person needs tissues, when I’m sick I go through a box very quickly. DealDash has tissues up for bid pretty frequently, almost always in bulk. These particular tissues have gone for as little as ONE penny!

SoftHeat Ultra Moist/Dry Heating Pad

Heating pads are a great staple to have in your sickroom supplies also. They are great if you have an ear ache, or just have the chills from being sick and need a little extra warmth.

The last item that absolutely every person needs for their sickroom supplies is a humidifier. There are a few different kinds of humidifier, the main two options being either COLD or WARM mist. They both do essentially the same thing – spout out a mist into the air that has great benefits such as relieving the discomforts of nasal congestion, dry itchy skin, chapped lips, and dry throat. Cool mist humidifiers tend to be less expensive to buy and operate. If your humidifier will be going into a small child’s room be sure to buy a cool mist rather than warm, as sometimes the steam can burn you if you get too close. Warm mist humidifiers are a great choice for someone who is chilled easily, as they raise the room temperature slightly when in use.

 

 

I hope this article helps you on a journey to make some smart decisions on what to have on hand in case of illness. If you’re interested in getting some new items for your bathroom to combat sickness, head on over to DealDash. If you browse the Home & Office  category I’m sure that you’ll find something that you could use. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
