Did your Mom ever tell you she had eyes in the back of her head to see if you were misbehaving? My Mom sure did, and now I use that same expression. In fact, there are a lot ways I take after my Mom. This includes her tidiness and “Super-Clean-Saturdays” where we would all unwillingly chip in to do chores, resulting in a bleach smell that could be detected around the block. But, you’d have to be a super Mom to stop the illness season in its tracks. That’s why I’m sharing how PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer can aid in keeping those germs away + other go-to tips you might not know about. It’s perfect timing, too. Target has a $1 off coupon and a 20% off coupons for you to save on your bottle of PURELL® 80z and larger!
Technically, it’s halfway through the school year even though we rang in the new year just a few weeks back. My son, who is in kindergarten, has been well this whole time. That’s a new record for us. He is an asthmatic, so keeping him healthy is very important.
I, personally, have been spending more time chatting about cleanliness to my two little ones. But no talk is powerful enough to stop them from eating a booger or dipping their hands in the local pond. That’s why I personally carry PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer around in my purse, car, at playtime, and during clean-up time. The PURELL® brand helps to limit germs spreading, so you don’t have to miss out on any memories! Plus, it can be easily found at Target in multiple sizes. It combines scientific expertise with real world application. The result? It kills germs on hands which, in turn, means less worry for us Moms.
6 other ways to reduce illness:
✓ Air purifiers – Reduce the concentration of pollutants and trap dust particles and impurities inside any room in your house. This is especially convenient when the outside air quality gets bad during fire season.
✓ Green bedding – I’ve acquired eco-friendly allergen bedding for my son who has flare up asthma. Believe me, they help! They use material like BioFoam, which is plant based, during production. This lowers VOCs and reduces harmful chemicals.
✓ Indoor plant use – My sister in law has her own plant business, so we have a number of air-purifying plants. This is an easy and very fun way to decorate while cleaning the air! Plus, teaching kids to care for their plant is an added bonus.
✓ Place a toddler potty in the trunk for little ones. Until these kids can potty without accidentally falling in, there’s an emergency potty in our trunk. I used to think it was weird but man, I’ve seen some terrifying bathrooms. I just cringe thinking of my four year old using them.
✓ Take vitamins regularly. Taking vitamin C during a cold isn’t really going to help. I found that out and instantly incorporated Vitamin-C in my kids’ daily night-time routine. Other herbal supplements that usually aid in immunity are echinacea, elderberry, vitamin E, A and zinc.
✓ The “chat” – Not the birds and the bees. More like, the flies and the trees or anything sprouting from the ground. Teach your kids to wash their hands often and not to touch dirty things. I don’t allow snacks until the kids get home from school and can properly clean their hands. This is the most obvious of the steps but it truly takes time. I find that letting them pick the color of the soap really gets them excited about using it later. *Hint* This also works well for toothpaste, too!
