Happy – Healthy – July 4th Weekend, Everyone!

All of us at ProNatural Brands hope you are taking time out to relax and enjoy the holiday weekend with friends and family.

But we also know that staying healthy this holiday weekend is particularly important, so we want to remind you of ten ways to help keep you, your friends, and your family safe and healthy.

1. First, remember to clean! Always wipe down surfaces like counters and tables with cleaner, sanitizers, or disinfectants. This is true whether the fun will be inside or outside.

2. When cleaning, go easy on the environment by using citric-acid-based cleaners, sanitizers, and disinfectants. They are proven safe to use, effective, and environmentally responsible.

3. Remember to wash your hands before preparing food. Sometimes when the fun begins, we forget.

4. Make sure hand sanitizers are available, especially if outdoors or having a picnic. Everyone uses them now. It tells friends and family you want them to stay healthy.

5. Also, if you are grilling this summer (and who isn’t?), be sure to sanitize your grill before and after each use.

6. Make sure you clean fruits and vegetables before serving. The best way to do this is with a LEXX Fruit and Vegetable cleaner. Used in restaurants around the country, some say it even improves the taste of fruits and vegetables.

7. If the kids are playing with toys, be sure and sanitize or disinfect them. Young kids have a nasty habit of not washing their hands. This is how diseases spread, but proper cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting can help keep them healthy.

8. Be sure and use a bug repellant. Bugs can spread disease. Consumer Reports has evaluated fifty-three bug repellants. Here are their findings.

9. Eat mindfully and try not to overeat. It’s easy to overeat. But overindulgence reduces our energy level – so we miss the fun – makes us more stressed, less alert, and our immune system can dip.

10. Have plenty of water available if serving alcoholic drinks. Alcoholic drinks can be very dehydrating. Plenty of water helps you, friends, and family, stay hydrated and metabolize alcohol faster. This way, they stay safe when driving home.
