I am by no means a germaphobe (that title belongs to my dear friend) but I like to make sure that my hands are clean, especially having kids. It’s hard to keep your hands germ-free, but with frequent washes (throughout the day) you can avoid getting sick and spreading those germs. Many people don’t know how to wash properly and until recent years, I did not know either. Most people put there hands under running water, put some soap, then wash it off, and they are done. Did you know that you should rub your hands vigorously for at least 20 seconds? For proper hand washing instructions, please visit the Mayo Clinic site.
In conjunction with hand washing, having the right sanitizer is essential. Before having children, I use to get hand sanitizers from Whole Foods and Trader Joes that came in a gel form. Although they were great sanitizers and got the job done, I wanted something specific that my children could use.
One day I took my preschooler to The Treehouse Social Club for her to play and while she was playing, I came across the Cleanwell All-Natural Hand Sanitizers. Immediately, I took a sample and used it on my daughter. I loved that it came in a compact spray and it didn’t have any striking alcoholic scent to it (alcohol-free). More importantly, it’s safe for kids, non-toxic, readily biodegradable, naturally antibacterial, and never tested on animals! Made with a patented formulation of essential plant oils proven to kill 99.99% of the germs that can make you sick.
The Cleanwell Hand Sanitizer makes its appearance in my daughter’s lunchbox everyday. After she washes her hands, she sprays on her santizer, and then she eats her lunch. Recently, I was told that she also sprays her fellow classmates’ hands as well. My daughter is only 4 years old, but she uses it by herself without the assistance of an adult (very kid user friendly). It makes my life easier, cleaner, and brighter!
