Staying Healthy During Doctor’s Visits

Cold and flu season is in full swing now. To reduce the spread of viruses, musicians who perform on the road have a tip to stay healthy: avoid touching your fingers to your face. More tips: wash hands often, use hand sanitizer (try moisturizing sprays and new slim designs the size of a credit card) and wipe down surfaces such as shopping cart handles and airplane tray tables. If you do get sick, reduce contact with germs and bacteria at the doctor’s office by hanging your purse with a Clipa bag hanger. Use it on: counters, chairs, shelves, cabinets, exam tables, even window ledges. And if you’re getting blood drawn, you can use it at the check-in counter while filling out paperwork as well as on the chair’s padded armrests. It’s handy in restroom stalls, rails, even sinks at doctor’s offices, pediatric clinics and hospitals. ‘Got a question? Please visit the Frequently Asked Question section on our new website.

Protect Yourself Against Germs This Fall With These Ideas


A change in the weather often brings more germs, from the bank ATM screen to the stylus at the grocery store checkout. Here are some handy hints to stay healthy:

Besides getting a flu shot and washing hands often, remember to wipe down cart handles and use a paper towel to open restroom doors when possible. Keep hand sanitizer or disinfecting spray in your car. Get in the habit of spraying kids’ hands when they get in the car or having them wash their hands as soon as they get home.

Keep your handbag germ-free this season by periodically emptying, cleaning and disinfecting it following the manufacturer’s instructions. It’s a good idea to do this every season, particularly if the bag is made of natural materials. You can prevent contact with germs by keeping your bag off the floor with a Clipa bag hanger. Because it goes on the purse strap and opens automatically, you can hang it instantly–using only one hand–almost anywhere.

Clipa’s unique design means it will work on rails and sinks in bathrooms and on the vertical rails in airplane lavatories. It hangs almost any bag or backpack in just a half an inch of space—far less space than most other purse hangers. In a standard stall, your Clipa can hang bags from: (clockwise) a bathroom stall door or wall that’s missing its hook, the diaper changing table, on any hardware brace that attaches the door to the wall even the seat cover dispenser. Most other purse hooks just won’t work in any of these places.
