Wet Ones: Keeping Kids Healthy for the
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!
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.
