Give Germs the Slip

Your biggest defense against lurking cold and flu bugs: old-fashioned hand-washing. Soap up long enough to sing "Happy Birthday" twice through (about 20 seconds); if you can't wash, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Be sure to scrub or sanitize after touching the germiest surfaces—doorknobs, fridge handles, TV remotes, bathroom faucets, and money—and after shaking hands. Keep your mitts off your face, to avoid giving germs a free ride into your eyes, nose, or mouth.
