Keeping It Clean

We are only month into the school year, but somehow, all three kids even I, have managed to get sick already. Siella missed two days of school last week with a fever, and I expect this is just the tip of the iceberg as the weather starts to change.

We went from spending summer days outdoors at parks and beaches, to cooped up in cramped classrooms with 30 kids on top of one another. I can only hope they remember to clean their hands before eating lunch. Each day, when the kids get back from school, I insist that they empty their backpacks, clean their hands, so I can wash out their lunch boxes. Books and papers are spread all over our kitchen table, so before dinner, I grab some Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, to wipe down the table.

Clorox Disinfecting Wipes remove germs, bacteria, kitchen grease, and tons of other germs lurking in your home. They kill 99.9% of germs that can live on surfaces for up to 48 hours, including most viruses and bacteria, including Staph, E. Coli, Salmonella, and Strep.

Clorox Disinfecting Wipes clean and disinfect at the same time. When you use a sponge, dishrag or even paper towel, you can spread bacteria from one surface to another. Instead of killing germs, you are pushing them around and possibly increasing the contaminated area. I found a super helpful infographic on the Clorox website, stating the five of germiest spots in your home, and I was surprised at some of the “winners.” They are doorknobs, kitchen draw knob, bathroom sink, kitchen countertop, and bathroom faucet handle.

Flu season is approaching, so here are some of the best practices to do for your children:

  1. teach children to cough in their elbows.
  2. get the flu vaccine.
  3. stay home when you are sick
  4. wash hands
  5. and, of course, use Clorox disinfecting wipes on those prime surfaces.

Here’s to enjoying these early months of back to school, and hoping everyone can keep healthy along the way!

  1. Dude, I totally feel you. My littles have also had a bug, already this school-year. Seems like I need to invest in some Clorox Wipes 🙂

  2. This time of the year I really amp up my cleaning. With cold and flu season here I always make sure I have Clorox Disinfecting Wipes on hand.

  3. I love using disinfectant wipes. They’re great for cleaning everything! With the cold and flu season around, this is a great product to have on hand.

  4. I need to get some Clorox wipes after seeing there is a new virus in the US that is leaving kids paralyzed. There is a need to kill nasty germs out there and Clorox is ideal to do the job.

  5. Ahhh yes! When I was working in school we always had Clorox Wipes on hand. It was a life saver! Especially since it seems like no one ever keeps their kids home when they’re sick. 🙁
