Hi Lovelies! I know…Long time no see right.
Well it’s that time of the year again where my kids are heading back to school and we are officially in school mode. It’s amazing to me how fast the summer break came to an end and the kids have already headed back to school, but I can’t lie I’m glad to see my kids back in school lol. My kids returned back to school on the 3rd of August so they have been back in school for a couple of weeks now. We are slowly trying to get back into the swing of things as we speak. I dislike doing things at the last minute so I took advantage of the time the kids were off from school to get their school supplies ahead of time to avoid the crowds and risking the chance of everything being gone and picked over because I hate having to go from store to store. I’m still in disbelief how fast my kids are growing up. My son is a junior in high school this year and my daughter is in the 5th grade. I wish I could slow down time because they growing up to fast for me. I can’t believe next year my son will be a senior. I don’t even want to think about it just yet, as much as I know it’s going to happen very soon.
Of course PURELL Hand Sanitizer was on both of their school supply list this school year. I believe it’s equally as important to use PURELL in the home as it is at school. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other leading health organizations, proper hand hygiene is one of the most important preventive measures you can take to reduce your risk of illness and infection, and we have been using PURELL Hand Sanitizer in our home for years and swear by it. When soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, like PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer, that contains as least 60% alcohol. If hands are visibly dirty, it’s always best to clean them with soap and water, but new PURELL Advanced Sanitizing Wipes can now help remove dirt and eliminate germs. For traveling purposes use PURELL’s jelly wrapped, flip top pump, or wipes that can fit in your purse or in your book bag so that you can stay germ free while you are on the go.
Tips for Practicing Good Hand Hygiene
Hand hygiene is significantly important in helping to prevent the spread of germs.
- Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds and if soap and water is not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs.
How Should I Wash and Sanitize My Hands?
- Handwashing: The entire handwashing process should take at least 20 seconds. A good procedure is to wet hands with water, apply enough soap to create a lather to cover all hand surfaces, rub hands palm to palm and carefully scrub fingers, back and front of hands and each thumb. Rinse hands with water and gently dry hands with a clean paper towel.
- Hand Sanitizing: The entire hand sanitizing process should take approximately 15 seconds. Apply a dime-sized amount of hand sanitizer, enough to cover all surfaces of your hands, rub the sanitizer into the palms of your hands, fingers, back and front of hands and thumbs. Continuing rubbing hands together until hands are dry.
Starting today follow my family’s commitment to reducing the spread of illness causing germs this back-to-school season by taking the PURELL 30-Day Challenge and you should join in on the fun.
