Proper medication and vitamin storage is very important, especially if you have children. When storing these items, be sure to keep them away from extreme temperatures – hot OR cold.
Don’t store them in the bathroom medicine cabinet-it’s actually the worst place, due to temperature and moisture. A kitchen cabinet, or pantry door, away from the oven is good.
Here’s what to do:
1. LABEL — Gather several containers and label each by category: Children’s medications, Fever/Pain, First Aid (bandages, ointment, wound cleaner), Splints/Wraps, Eyes/Ears/Nose/Skin, Allergy & Bug Bites, Bowels & Belly, Vitamins, Prescription Medicine (per person).
2. PURGE — Check all expiration dates and purge expired items before organizing them into the containers.
3. STORE — Leave vitamins and medicine in their original containers. Some supplements lose their effectiveness when exposed to light, for example, which is the reason for their dark-colored plastic containers. AVOID combining your vitamins with other supplements.
4. CHECK — Before you flush expired products down the toilet, please research the FDA website to learn how to dispose of them properly!
