Spring Cleaning & Keeping Kids Healthy with Pfizer + Giveaway

Spring is finally here and it’s the perfect time for spring cleaning! I don’t know about you, but when spring arrives, I have this desire to start cleaning and throwing away things we don’t use anymore or medicines that have expired. One of the things I do when it comes to spring cleaning in our house is to go through our medicine cabinet and throw away those items that are expired.
Sometimes when we start spring cleaning, we think about cleaning our house, but don’t really think about our medicine cabinet. Medicines have expiration dates that tend to get overlooked, but it’s always a good idea to check the dates and re-stock any essentials for when sick gets real! Check out these tips for Spring Cleaning – Your Medicine Cabinet.
1 – Clean one medicine cabinet at a time. In our home, we have 2 bathrooms, which means we have 2 medicine cabinets. However, we only store medicines in the medicine cabinet in our room. While we only store medicines in our medicine cabinet, I’m sure there are people out there who have more than one medicine cabinet they use. Take it slow and clean out one medicine cabinet at a time.
2 – Have a garbage bag nearby and throw away expired medicines. It’s amazing how many medicines can expire in a year and you don’t want your bathroom trash can overflowing with expired medications. I like to throw them away in a garbage bag that I can tie up and immediately toss in the trash can when I’m done.
3 – Make a list. As you toss the expired medications in the trash, be sure to make a list of those medicines you throw away so you know what to replace the next time you go to the store.
4 – Replace expired medications. Now that you’ve cleaned out your medicine cabinet and thrown away expired medicines, it’s time to replace those expired medications. Be sure to scope out sales and print out or cut out coupons to use toward your medicine restock purchase.
A few of the medicines for kids that we have on hand in our home include the following Pfizer Pediatric Medicines: Children’s Advil® Suspension, Grape (ages 2-11); Children’s Robitussin ® Extended-Release 12 Hour Cough Relief (ages 4+); and Children’s Dimetapp® Multi-Symptom Cold Relief Dye-Free (ages 6+).
