Germ-busting tips and a chance to win a £100 John Lewis Voucher!
Every year, GSK organizes the GSK Challenge, a scientific competition for students and for 2015, the challenge has been about Germ Control and how students think they can help stop the spread of germs. GSK also partner with Save the Children to help end preventable deaths through medicines, vaccinations and by investing in the training of health workers, amongst other things. They are also inspiring the next generation of scientists, which is so important, since we are currently at risk of facing a massive future shortfall.
All this got me thinking about the measures we take at home to try and combat the spread of germs. It’s not easy, especially as our children have a pesky habit of picking up germs and bringing them home to share lovingly with the whole of the family!
I’m not obsessed with cleanliness and am of the school of thought that exposure to some germs is important in helping build a healthy immune system. But basic hygiene is important and I am particularly scrupulous about food hygiene. The things I do are keep the kitchen work surfaces clean with an antibacterial spray and I am cautious when preparing and cooking meat, especially chicken. I follow all the food hygiene rules, after all who wants a bout of food poisoning? It’s horrible and unwelcome and in some instances can even be quite seriously dangerous to your health.
But now it’s over to you – I’d love to hear your top tips for keeping germs at bay. What do you do to eliminate them? By sharing one of your cleaning tips, you will have the chance to win a £100 gift voucher from John Lewis, courtesy of GSK, and if you choose to do the other entry options too you will have extra chances of winning!
