Clorox Healthy Home and $1000 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

So has the news been scaring you a little with all this talk of flu? Well, it has certainly made me nervous, that’s for sure. It seems like everyone has been sick so much lately. We love to do playdates with our friends, but it’s like once one family is on the mend, another one goes down. Which has definitely led to some disappointment for my girls when they aren’t getting to play with their buddies as often as they would like.

Luckily, knock on wood, we have only been sick once this cold / flu season. The kids got a pretty bad cold before the holidays. They had it for about a week and then got over it right before Christmas. And since then we’ve been staying pretty healthy (now that I just said this we are going to come down with the plague……great).

The teachers at the kids preschool are really good about keeping things clean and they give each child a squirt of hand sanitizer when they come into the room. I think that has really helped a lot. But also, when the girls come home I make sure that they wash their hands thoroughly right when they get inside. They say if you sing the Happy Birthday song a couple times while washing your hands then you know you’ve done it for the right amount of time to get rid of the germs.

For the most part we use a lot of natural cleaners around the house, but there are some cases where only the heavy duty, disinfecting stuff will do. Clorox Clean Up Cleaner with Bleach can kill 99.9% of germs in 30 seconds. Yes, 30 seconds. And while cleaning your homes should occur on a regular basis, you should definitely aim to disinfect your home from time to time.

Another product that comes in handy when trying to prevent germs and sickness around the house are the Clorox Disinfecting Wipes. We have three children under the age of five in this house and these wipes are super-handy for disinfecting toys, cleaning up messes in the kitchen, disinfecting doorknobs. I also like to use these to disinfect the steering wheel in my car. Think about how many germs are in the car! Ok, you don’t need to think about the germs because if you’re like me, it will give you the heebie-geebies, but just use the wipes and get rid of them.

It’s one of the worst feelings as a parent to see your child sick, but there are definitely ways to prevent it. Some ideas include disinfecting things around your home, encouraging frequent hand washing and trying to get kids not to touch their eyes, nose or mouth since that’s the way germs spread. Also, we like to have our kids sneeze into the bend of their arm. While sneezing into your hands does prevent the germs from flying all around the room, it leaves them on your hands to be spread all around your home.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am not a clean freak (my husband, maybe), but during cold and flu season it is just super-important to take extra precautions to keep our children and family happy and healthy.
