It’s back-to-school time, even at our house! Big Brother just recently started a two-day a week preschool program. He’s been having a wonderful time and for that, I’m thrilled. But, as a teacher (and after Big Brother going to daycare at my school the years I taught), I know all too well that school = germ-sharing! It’s true for all kids (actually, it was always true even for me as a teacher–especially my first couple of years, I would always get sick within the 1st few weeks back to school), but little ones seem especially great at sharing germs!
I’ve wanted to try one of these for so long, but was a little nervous about buying it & then not liking it or it not working. But, that was silly, because t’s fantastic! It’s perfect for little hands that have difficulty operating the soap pumps. But, it doesn’t look “kid-ish” at all. The new sleek stainless steel-inspired look fits right in with our bathroom & kitchen.
The starter kit includes a dispenser, one hand soap refill, and four AA batteries. The soap (which is said to kill 99.9% of bacteria) combined with the no touch dispenser, helps to make handwashing extra effective…helping to keep you & your kiddos healthy. The soap refills are available in four great scents: Refreshing Grapefruit Essence™, Soothing Cucumber Splash™, Aloe Vera & Vitamin E with Moisturizers, Antibacterial Total Care. I just wish you didn’t have to get a new small refill each time, but could get a large bottle & refill into the smaller bottle used with the system. But, even with that “issue”, I still think the Lysol® Healthy Touch® No-Touch Hand Soap System is a very “handy” product to have around & in fact, I’m going to get a second one for our kitchen!
We are all about the cleaning/sanitizing wipes around here! With the little guys running around, it seems like there is always something that need wiping! While the wipe-method is probably not the most cost-effective, it is SO convenient. And, they just got even better with the Lysol® Dual Action Disinfecting Wipes. One side is more your “ordinary” wipe for everyday cleaning, but now the other side is perfect for scrubbing tough messes. These wipes are great for germ-fighting & prevention as, according to Lysol, the wipes kill 99.9% of viruses (like colds & flu) and bacteria when used as directed!
It’s clear Lysol knows all about the importance of germ-prevention, especially at back-to school time! Here are some great tips, plus a cute handwashing poster that you could read with the kiddos or hang in their bathroom:
- Handwashing Tips
- Handwashing Poster
- Back-To-School Basics
- Establish Before- and After-School Hygiene Habits
But, don’t just take my word for it…you can try the products out for yourself! In fact, thanks to Lysol® and MomSelect, one lucky Mom Endeavors reader will win a Lysol Prize Pack (the pack contains both the Lysol® Healthy Touch® No-Touch Hand Soap System and the Lysol® Dual Action Disinfecting Wipes)!!
