Getting Ready for Back-to-School ~ And Making a Clean Start with Wet Ones®!

Wet Ones: Keeping Kids Healthy for the 
School Year
We just went school supply shopping since school is starting in just two weeks! It’s crazy how fast summer went by! We have a list from our school district of what we need to purchase. There are pencils, notebooks, folders, markers, crayons, and even Kleenex boxes and Wet Ones®! All the main supplies will stay in my daughter’s desk, but the Kleenex and Wet Ones® go for the classroom to use! We all know why Kleenex is needed, but are you wondering about Wet Ones®? Well, these antibacterial hand wipes are an effective alternative to clean hands and prevent the spread of germs. They kill 99.99% of germs, but they also clean better than hand sanitizer gels, wiping away dirt and messes without drying out skin like alcohol-­‐based hand sanitizers. I’ve also seen the teachers wipe down desks with them to get germs off. You can even use about one wipe with ten or so desks! 

Wet Ones Wipes
We all know kids get sick, but helping to prevent the mass spread of germs is not only responsible, but respectful to others. My daughter likes to carry Wet Ones® in her backpack to use when she needs them (the small travel packs). As for school, we like to donate the large canisters. We also use them for gymnastics (my daughter keeps them in her gym bag), as she spends hours a week in the gym and she needs to wipe down her hands after practice! 
Lastly, I am a Girl Scout Brownie leader for my daughter’s troop, and boy do these things come in handy during meetings or outdoor days. I have many of these travel packs on hand for my troop to use! Out in the woods and it’s snack time? No worries, we have Wet Ones® to clean-up before we eat! 
The first and easiest line of defense against the spread of germs is to wash hands often. When soap and water are not available, Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes are an effective alternative to prevent the spread of germs. 80% of germs are spread to the body through hands (touching your eyes, nose, mouth), so it’s most important to keep your hands clean and stay healthy!        
Good luck with Back-to-School!! Remember to pack up your kids backpacks and lunch boxes with some Wet Ones® so they can keep clean, especially before they use their hands to eat! Donate some to a teacher as well! They can always use them, even if they are not on your supply list! They will be thankful!

Here’s my daughter cleaning off her supplies for the coming school year! She is actually super excited for school to start! 3rd grade here she comes!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Wet Ones. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.

And check out the tips below for some great advice on Back-to-School:



  1. Love Wet Ones! Whenever I see them on sale I always grab a bunch. They are perfect for keeping in the diaper bag or in the car. So many uses!

  2. We love Wet ones. We have them all over the house!!

  3. Sure wish my kids classes used these more. 5 days into school and my oldest has already missed because of sickness! Hate germs!!! Love wipes!

  4. I love these! These are a staple in our van. With even younger kids there is always something to clean or wipe. And heaven forbid, this way I have a back up in case I run out of my diaper bag wipes as well.

  5. I keep some on hand too! Love that it cleans while disinfecting unlike regular hand sanitizer.

  6. My sister is addicted to using Wet Ones! A lot easier to carry than a bottle that might spill out in your purse.

  7. I have never thought of using wipes instead of hand sanitizer. I imagine it would create a lot less waste and be a lot more versatile. Wipes are easier for little hands that can’t quite manage sanitizer yet.

  8. I love Wet Ones! I keep some in the car. :)

  9. Love the back-to-school pictures! Wet Ones are a staple in our household and definitely for travel. I came across bags with the individual ones on clearance a few months back and they are fantastic for keeping in my purse and diaper bags.

  10. Love the little packs of wet ones. WE keep them in the cars! Perfect for on the go!!

  11. All of those supplies are litterally exactly what I give to my kids! Back to school here we come…

    I work a lot of hours so I like to have them for cleaning my hands. They are also good for cleaning toilet seats in public restrooms.

  26. Thanks for the review! We are addicted to them at my house. I think there is at least two or three of the containers in every room, plus I keep the little packets stashed in my purse! =)

  27. LOVE wet ones for both my kids!

  28. we never go out without them!

  29. Love, love love, wet wipes. They are a constant and a neccessity in our home. Have them everywhere in the house, car, purse, etc…

  30. Last year, my son was barely sick. First two months of Grade 3 brutal. Seems I was constantly picking up antiseptic lotion. Now I have stocked up on wet wipes, clean his hands upon entering school and while leaving. Hoping Grade 4 is uneventful (*yawn*)


  31. I just attended a wet ones twitter party and i learned so much about their product. I’ve always used them of course but it’s nice that they care about their customers to host a party and give back to them! I have Wet ones at home, purse, car.. everywhere they are truly a great product. Great post!

  32. I always keep some in my tote bag while I am at school.

  33. I like them much better than the alcohol based sanitizers because they clean as well as disinfect.

  34. Agree 100% on the Wet Ones. We carry a few with us in the car for cleaning up after fast food, etc. They also do a great job of removing certain types of stains from carpet.

  35. Wet Ones are definitely a MUST HAVE at all times.. Glad to see your lil one agrees!

  36. I LOVE wet wipes! They come in so handy with a toddler! We like to keep some in the diaper bag. My little guy is always into something and these are fantastic for a quick clean up.

  37. I’m glad that wet ones come in these handy packs now. They are really handy especially for the kids to have something right at their fingertips. Wondering how that stickiness to keep them closed lasts for the long haul?

  38. I carry these in my purse to use; after putting gas in my car, going to the supermarket (handling the shopping cart), riding on public transits, and for basic clean-ups.

  39. I have never tried this particular brand, but I will say that once I got our daughter potty trained, we still had wipes left over, and I had no idea how handy they ended up being for things other than wiping off butts. We have used them to wipe food off of hands, and dried boogers. I can definitely see myself sending Wet Ones to school with our daughter once she starts!

  40. Love Wet Ones, they are an all purpose, go everywhere wipe!

  41. I have wet ones everwhere,, In the house in the car in my purse in my kids backpacks even in the sports bags. Lol And thanks for a chance to win on your 24 hour giveaway.

  42. I keep wet ones everywhere! I’ve already got some for the teachers, too

  47. I love these wipes. I use them to wipe down so many thins. They are so handy. Sometimes in the house I add some alcohol to a wipe and continue wiping

  48. Gone are the days of sending big bulky boxes of tissue to school with your kids. Wet Wipes cover the issue of keeping hands and face clean. Sturdy and sanitary, a great saver at any age, from 7 months to 70 years.

  49. I try to keep these in my car with my son, but I didn’t know they killed more germs than sanitizer!

  50. Would not know what to do with out my Wet ones. They are super

  52. Yes I keep a pack in my daughters book bag the only problem I have with them is that the opening gets rubbed open alot and the wet ones get dried out. I wish the made a small container of them. I have a old diaper wipes container that is covered with fabric and very pretty that I wanted to put them in but she tells me that she is too old for that :)

  53. So handy!

  71. I carry them with me everywhere. We take them on vacation with us (Disney) and we wipe down tables, or seats, handles…etc. I also carry Clorox wipes in the travel size. They’ve come in handy more times than I can count.
