Simple way to hold down on airborne germs – Onions!
In the room with the sick one take an onion and cut it in half. Lay each half on a small plate with the cut side up. Put one on each side of the bed where the person puts their head. Do this just at bed time. The next morning pick up the onions, they will be black, and throw them in the trash and then tie the bag.
Now I buy only small onions. If I can not use the entire onion then I throw away what I do not need. One look at an onion after it has soaked up germs will make it’s point.
