Make your own 'Flu Kit'

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was at the pharmacy today and noticed they had Flu Kits on sale with everything you need! 25$ a piece- I can find everything in that kit for cheaper! Plus, most of us already have some of it at home, right?

Heres what the list includes:
-tissues
-liquid soap
-paper towels
-hand sanitizer
-thermometer
-tylonol and advil
-fluids for dehydration(gatorade, pedialite, ect)
-disinfectant
-masks

On the bottom of the list they included some homemade recipes

Disinfectant for surfaces:
-1 part bleach to 4 parts water

Electrolyte replacement recipes:
-2 quarts water
-1 t. baking soda
-1 t. salt
-7 T. sugar
-1 packet sugar free kool-aid


I love the electrolyte replacement recipe since even store brand pedialyte is 3$ or 4$!!!

Thank you for the fluid replacement receipe. I try to keep Gatorade in the house for emergency use only but my hubby ALWAYS finds it.
