I am currently knocking on every piece of wood I can find as I type this, but so far my family has not been knocked down by the flu plague that has overtaken Rockford. Safe to say I intend to keep it that way, so any and all flu prevention tips I can find I am willing to try.

That being said, has anyone tried this one? Does it actually work?

I super hate putting anything up or in my nose, and I'm sure doing this to my kids will be a super unpleasant experience, but if it keeps us safe from the flu I'll deal with the torture.
