Product Talk: Achoo! Facial Tissues


If there’s one product to stock up on this time of year, it might be facial tissues. Cold and flu season brings runny and stuffy noses, coughs and sneezes. And the best way to fight them is with tissues.

Children can have a tough time learning the art of blowing their noses. Think about it: could you write down the steps, one at a time for successfully carrying out the mission? It’s a lot more complicated than you might think.

Blowing your nose isn’t the same as dabbing. When you blow, you really shouldn’t blow hard out of both nostrils at once. That can actually send bacteria into nasal passages. Instead, close one nostril by pressing a finger against one side of your nose; then blow gently out the open nostril.

Tissue etiquette says you should throw tissues away after use, and follow that with a thorough hand-washing (or application of antibacterial gel). Etiquette also says you should turn away from a group of people and try not to blow your nose at the dinner table.

Next time you’re shopping, pick up a few extra boxes of tissue. Chances are, if the cold or flu strikes, you won’t want to hurry out and shop for supplies. Stock up now—better safe than sorry!
