With 5 kids at home, someone is almost always sick. As hard as I try, disinfecting everything can be a pain. Thankfully, there have been a few products that are easy (and safe) enough for my kids to help me clean with. The Seventh Generation Disinfecting Wipes not only smell great, clean really well, and make wiping down icky surfaces super easy -- they are made from natural ingredients that you have actually heard of.
With 60% of teachers surveyed by Seventh Generation saying that they request parents donate disinfecting wipes to the classroom, it's a great idea to stock up for back to school. They kill 99.99% of germs* naturally using a component of thyme oil.
(For an entertaining video on the history of germs, see this video from Seventh Generation!)
Some extra tips to help keep kids healthy when entering the classroom include:
- Teach children the key times to clean their hands in the classroom. The most important times include after sneezing, coughing or using the restroom, upon leaving "high-risk" places (recess, naptime, play stations) and before meals or snacks.
- Demonstrate to your children how to cover their mouth and nose for every cough and sneeze. This simple maneuver has spectacular results in decreasing the spread of viruses and bacteria floating about the room, waiting to be inhaled.
