Keeping Healthy with Tropicana, Hulu Kids & Honeywell Germ-Free Humidifier

by - 2/23/2013 02:35:00 PM

After recovering from a very long and sick holiday break, I've been taking care to stay healthy. While I can't prevent myself from getting sick, especially during the current cold and flu season, I can try and boost my bodies immunity system and try to keep germs down around the home.

Note: As part of the Tropicana "TropiMomma" Ambassador program, I was compensated for this post. I received Hulu Plus service so I could review Hulu Kids. I received Honeywell Humidifier for review purpose. Views expressed are always 100% my own.

For the past few months, this is exactly what I've been doing. First I started with a "Back to Being Healthy Cleaning" using some of the latest cleaning devices and products.

Now that my apartment is clean, it was time to turn to myself. I made sure I stocked up on Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice so I can get my daily Vitamin C (and many other immune boosting nutrients). Plus Tropicana Pure Premium orange is made from fresh oranges so it tastes great in the morning.

To make sure I had enough, I bought the Tropicana Pure Premium 89-oz bottles. It didn't hurt that the bottles are well designed and pretty to look at. LOL. But I really like the ease of handling and pouring. Makes for getting a cup nice and quick during the day. Plus pouring when using in recipes. I have a few recipes using Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice so keep on the look out for them.

I also used Hulu during and after our sick time. Your probably think, how can Hulu keep you healthy? Did you ever hear laughter is the best medicine? Recently Hulu launched Hulu Kids and I really used it for the days when we laid in bed not feeling well. Check out the below video to see how to use Hulu Kids

I think using Hulu Kids to keep kids entertained will be very useful for parents. Kids will be able to watch some of their favorite shows a safe, commercial-free environment. Parents can connect to Hulu Kids using the Hulu Plus App on their mobile devices while on the road traveling, waiting at the doctor office, etc. No more hearing a child say I'm bored or dealing with them fussing.

As if dealing with cold and flu germs weren't enough, a few times my son and I had to deal with bloody noses. The between the dry winter air and the weird heat in out apartment, our poor noses were suffering. So to help put back moisture in the air in our apartment, I used the Honeywell Easy-Care Cool Mist Filter Free Humidifier.

I first saw the Easy-Care Cool Mist Humidifier during the Honeywell 2012 Products Preview and really liked the simple design that allows the water to have a continuous flow so that it keeps fresh. No more stagnant sitting water. The Humidifier also has no filters to change so caring for it really is easy.

Filling is as simple and pouring the water into the opening on the top. There's a water gauge on the side that lets you know both how filled the humidifier is and when you need to start a refill. The light glows a nice bright blue when you turn the Humidifier on. After being filled the humidifier will run up to 24 hours, which is great since that means I can sleep instead of worrying if I need to wake up and refill it.

The Honeywell Germ-Free Cool Mist Humidifier helps temporarily relieve dry air discomforts for better home comfort. UV technology kills up to 99.9% of bacteria, mold, fungus and virus in the water after 2 hrs of continuous use. This provides the assurance that the moisture emitted from the unit is virtually free of germs.

Features include:
  • Quiet Operation - Up to 25% quieter than other evaporative humidifiers
  • Dishwasher safe water tank and tray
  • Self regulating evaporative system - adjusts output to the amount of moisture the air can hold at a particular temperature.
  • Perfect for medium size rooms such as bedrooms and living rooms. Runs up to 24 hrs per filling
  • MSRP: $74.99 / 3 Year Warranty

So these are just a few products that are helping keep us healthy and entertained till we pass out of the cold and flu season. Hopefully they can help your family stay healthy also.
