The Season is Upon Us!

Cold and Flu season!! Since returning from our Christmas trip, our family has been passing bugs around. We haven't gotten the flu, thank Heaven, but we seem to not be able to shake our colds. Our humidifier is getting an extra workout this year. And doesn't it seem impossible to keep the water in the humidifier clean?? I thought I would pass a long a little tip that I heard on one of my shows, though I can't remember which one. It was suggested that a few drops of tea-tree oil in the water will help keep the water in your humidifier (and the air) clean! Tea-tree oil can be purchased at health food stores and online at www.vitaminworld.com . So there's your tip for the day. Hope you all are happy and stay healthy this Cold and Flu season!

That is a GREAT tip! I'm always freaked out about the potential for things growing in our humidifier....

I am pretty sure that the pink stuff on the bottom of our humidifier is not good. :-)
