WASHING YOUR HANDS!
Frequent hand washing with warm water and soap is the number one way to prevent the common cold--as well as the flu and other viruses--but making sure hands are totally dry might be just as important. Eliminating wetness can reduce the transfer of bacteria by as much as 99%, according to a study published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology. In addition, people dry their hands more thoroughly with a paper towel than by using an air dryer, which takes longer so they often end up wiping their hands on their pants.
