Sure, they’re cute and all, but kids are the kings and queens of being messy. Keeping them healthy and safe isn’t always easy when they’re touching and licking everything in reach, sharing with friends and getting into places they shouldn’t. While letting them explore and learn on their own is important, it’s also important to protect them from harmful and dangerous germs and viruses. That’s why we’re giving you everything you need to know about keeping your little one, their favorite toys and all their surrounding surfaces clean.
A Hands On Approach To Sanitizing
From school and play dates to restaurants and stores... the list of places your kids will go is endless and so is the number of things they’re going to pick up along the way. All of this touching makes children highly susceptible to a number of contagious illnesses, including colds, stomach flu, strep throat, and pinkeye. While you can’t stop your children from touching things as they explore their way through life, you can get ahead of their exposure to harmful germs and viruses with our long-lasting hand sanitizer. What makes this sanitizer so effective is that it kills 99.9% of germs for up to 6 hours after you apply it, meaning you can sanitize your children before they touch and feel everything in site and know they’ll be protected.
Don’t Play Around With Toys
It’s recommend by doctors that you clean your kid’s toys regularly (about once a month). You should also take extra care when the following situations take place:
- Your child has been sick
- Someone at his or her school has been sick
- A friend has been sick
- Any food, milk, or bodily fluids are on a toy
While you may be wiping the dirt off of these toys every once in a while, it’s important to know that there’s a difference between cleaning and disinfecting. When cleaning, you’re simply removing impurities, possibly with soap and water. Disinfecting involves the actual killing of germs. While cleaning never hurts, disinfecting takes the process to a much deeper level, reducing the risk of infections spreading. Our recommendation is that you do both: clean first, and then disinfect. The good news is that for a handful of toys, you can throw them in the dishwasher or in the washing machine for a quick and easy clean.
As a parent, there’s no doubt you’re wiping up messes, faces and everything in between on a minute-by-minute basis. For these kinds of situations, its best to keep something around that’s easy to use and can clean up things fast. That’s where our Anti-Microbial Cleaning Cloths come in. These are literally made to keep killing germs all day long and can be used wet or dry on anything. These are the perfect things to have ready at home or in the car so you can quickly wipe anything down with ease. Germs don’t stand a chance when combatted with the powerful Silver Ion technology our cleaning clothes hold.
If you’re looking to do a more serious cleaning and disinfecting job, our top-rated Botanical Disinfectant is the ultimate choice, especially when thinking of the safety of your kids. Most powerful disinfectants use chemicals, parabens and harmful ingredients to kill germs, but ours is made of all botanical ingredients, making it perfect for use around your child. Plus, it kills 99.9% of germs, fungi, mold and bacteria using Thymol, derived from the Thyme plant. You can kiss those scary toxic cleaners goodbye and breathe easy knowing you’re cleaning your kid’s favorite things with plant power instead.
It’s no doubt that the germs and messes will keep happening but if you take the time to clean and disinfect, you can let your kids be kids and feel good about it.
