This year, we are hosting Christmas in our freshly redecorated digs, so I’ve been in serious prep mode. Everything has been planned – from easy appetizers that accommodate several dietary restrictions, plenty of meat and meatless sides, and lots of eggnog and festive beverages. A fun holiday music mix will be on repeat and playing in the background. We will probably cheese out, and even put the Yule Log on the TV.
I love the holidays, but I am sometimes wary about hosting big get-togethers in our small space, because large groups can overwhelm our tiny apartment and it seems like there is so much sickness at this time of the year. We were fortunate to have avoided getting sick during the back-to-school frenzy, and I am pretty confident that my thorough cleaning is what saved us. With this, I plan to be extra prepared during Christmas.
Part of my holiday-hosting prep includes stocking the space with PURELL® products, which means PURELL® brand HEALTHY SOAP® at each sink, large PURELL® Hand Sanitizer pump bottles strategically placed throughout the apartment especially near the snack bowls, and PURELL® Multi-Surface Disinfectant at the ready.
My apartment needs to be clean before, during, and even after the festivities, but I want my guests to feel comfortable and relaxed. That’s why I am using PURELL® products to keep us healthy this winter.
The PURELL® Multi Surface Disinfectant can be used around kids, pets, and even food. You don’t have to rinse it because it doesn’t leave a toxic residue behind. It kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria like the cold, flu, and strep we endured, in only 30 seconds! Since PURELL® Multi-Surface Disinfectant uses an alcohol-based formula, I don’t have to worry about those harsh chemicals, fumes or bleach. Let’s face it—every surface becomes a food-contact surface during the holidays, so I am grateful to be able to use one product to keep the space clean.
Wishing everyone a happy and HEALTHY holiday season!

Well, you definitely have a clean home. These are great products, and I already use these things.
I had no clue Purel had a surface spray cleaner. Never even thought to look. That is pretty cool. We are purel users whenever we go anywhere that is busy and full of people. Especially when dealing with children lol
I haven’t used Purel in such a long time that I didn’t know they had expanded their offerings. The multi-surface cleaner can definitely come in handy for cleaning up after parties. Lots of people in the house, means lots of germs.
I have not seen the spray form yet and will have to be on the lookout for it the next time I am out. It is so true that being aware and doing everything that you can to keep the germs at bay is huge and so glad you did not have any issues with getting sick with the onslaught of BTS. It happens for sure and I too avoided that by thorough cleaning…. plus my kids are aware and do their best to keep the germs at bay too. Thanks for sharing!
I love using Purell around the house. It seems to be working very well for me!
These are some really great products for making sure that your home is clean. We try to do the best we can as well with three kids!
