Flu Season is Coming, Kleenex Care Pack to the Rescue!
This past week was a rough one for me, I was sick with a bad throat infection—fever, aches and all. Needless to say, being sick is definitely not fun and when I’m sick there are a few staples that I turn to when I’m sick or when my loved ones are.
They are definitely all which mi Mami & Papi taught me and boy, whenever I am sick I want to turn to my Daddy.
Total daddy’s girl here.
Well, for one I think whenever your loved ones are sick, they want to feel safe and taken care of. We are out of sorts and sometimes just plain miserable, understandably so.
The go-to remedies that my mom and dad taught me were first off, take temperature to monitor fever, administer medication to lower temperature if fever is present and stay hydrated. If you’re latino, you know about “Vick-Vap-Or-Rub” and yes you say it all in one word. Prounounced “Veek-Vap-Vorube”.
The menthol rub that helped you breathe, helped you reach for those Kleenex tissues and feel better.
Ahh, the memories.
One of the remedies that both my parents and husband do for me when I’m sick is make me hot lemon tea, with a spoon of honey stirred in and served in my favorite mug. Paired with a dependable box of Kleenex and my spirits feel lifted. Not to mention my mother used to make the most delicious Sopa de Pollo with soft noodles and potatoes. It was so flavorful, warm and soothing. My dad would add a spritz of lemon for flavor and Vitamin C.
As an adult, I still do these things for myself but, I now do all of the above for my girls whenever they get sick.
Did you know that Kleenex Cool Touch tissues are the only tissues that actively release a cool sensation to soothe a sore nose on contact?
It’s no wonder why you think Kleenex whenever you’re sick.
