As a Mom to two children, germs are everywhere.
You can run, but you can't hide (from the germs, not
And it seemed as though we were on a streak for a while with sick kiddos in my house.
Upper respiratory infections.
Snotty, runny noses.
Another round of pneumonia.
Strep throat (um, make that 3 cases!).
You name it...we must have been treated with it.
And with the upcoming school year upon us, I can only imagine the amount of germs that they will come in contact with.
From the door handle to the front door of the school to the bathrooms and drinking fountains, the germs are everywhere.
But thanks to Lysol and their great products for my home, I have a little less to worry about.
While I have always used their products, I was given two sample products from them to try out: the Dual Action Disinfecting Wipes and the Healthy Touch No Touch Hand Soap System.
LYSOL® Dual Action Disinfecting Wipes have two sides that go beyond ordinary
wipes. Use one side for everyday touch-ups and the other to scrub through tough
messes. Because Dual Action Wipes are from the Lysol Brand, you can also trust
them to kill 99.9% of germs*. Use Dual Action Wipes all around your home to
clean and disinfect.
LYSOL® Dual Action Disinfecting Wipes come in
Citrus and Crisp Linen ® scent.
•Kills 99.9% of Viruses and Bacteria*
•Kills Cold and Flu Viruses including Pandemic 2009 H1N1 Influenza A
•One side with built in Fibers for Tough Messes or a Side for Touch-up
•Available in Citrus and Crisp Linen® Scent
I think these have got to be the best wipes around.
Having the choice of a softer side for wiping down counters and tabletops or the rough, scrubbing side for those caked-on messes that my kids are well known for making, my clean up was a breeze.
What's even better is that they don't leave a sticky residue on your hands nor your counter tops and they smell good, too.
LYSOL® Healthy Touch® No-Touch Hand Soap System helps eliminate the millions of
germs that your hands can pick up each day! It automatically senses hands and
dispenses just the right amount of soap. Hand washing is one of the most
important steps you and your children can take to help you stay healthy and with
the LYSOL® Healthy Touch® No-Touch Hand Soap System, you and your family will
never have to touch a germy soap pump again.
What's more, the system's
antibacterial hand soap kills 99.9% of bacteria on hands* —so it's ideal for use
in the kitchen or bathroom. The starter kit includes a dispenser, one hand soap
refill, and four AA batteries. When you use the LYSOL® Healthy Touch® No-Touch
Hand Soap System, you'll know you're helping your family by fostering proper and
effective hand washing to help prevent the spread of germs.
hand soap refills for the LYSOL® No-Touch Hand Soap System are enriched with
moisturizing ingredients and available in four great scents:
Grapefruit Essence™ (Refill only)
•Soothing Cucumber Splash™
& Vitamin E with Moisturizers
•Antibacterial Total Care
As a nurse, I am really into hand washing.
I stalk my kids to wash their hands all the time.
You will only find pump-soaps in my house (never a bar soap...YUCK!)
But with a 7 year old and 4 year old, they think that more is better and wind up pumping that hand soap four, five, and six times so that suds are billowing down over the sink and onto the floor.
With the automatic dispenser, they get the exact amount that they need with one swipe of their sticky, nasty, germy hand.
How many of you are as OCD about germs as I am?
