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:
- teach children to cough in their elbows.
- get the flu vaccine.
- stay home when you are sick
- wash hands
- 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!

I LOVE Clorox wipes. I use them all the time. I have 3 kids, 2 dogs, and a husband. I cannot be sick!
Clorox wipes are the best! They’re perfect for road tips and emergency clean up.
Great reminder! We use Clorox wipes all over the house. It cleans so good and keeps us from getting sick longer!
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 🙂
I love Clorox wipes! So simple and effective! And yes, teaching kids to cough into their elbow is so important!
Germs spread so quickly. Hopefully we can stay healthy this year. I will have to stock up on disinfecting wipes.
It seems like I’m constantly wiping down surfaces around the house to cut down on the spread of germs. Clorox Wipes are a must.
I love these wipes. I buy them in bulk and keep them around the house and in our RV. So convenient.
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.
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.
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.
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. 🙁
