We touch objects all the time, every day. What kind of germs may be on those things? Do you want your kids touching them? What do you clean them with?
Actress and mom, Ali Larter, has some tips for keeping your house healthy and germ-free for your kids:
- Understand the Size of Your Baby’s Social Network. “Recently, I learned that my baby’s social network is bigger than my own. I’m not talking about Twitter, or Instagram ... but the number of germs that she comes into contact with every day. It’s important to be aware of these “followers” and to kick them out of the home by disinfecting commonly touched surfaces with products that kill 99.9% of germs like Lysol Disinfecting Wipes so you can have peace of mind and focus on the fun parts of being a new parent!”
- Create a Germ-Free Runway. “My kids’ curiosity and desire to explore is high these days. Whether they are crawling, playing, or running around, they’re constantly coming into contact with the floors in our house. One of the simplest ways to help create a healthier runway for their play is to keep germs at a minimum outside and have guests take off their shoes before entering the home.”
- Know when to disinfect. “In addition to regularly disinfecting commonly touched surfaces, it’s important to disinfect areas after making a mess. When I’m cooking with my kids, and we accidentally break raw eggs on the counter, that’s a mess that needs to be cleaned up and disinfected! Raw eggs are at risk of housing bacteria that cause foodborne illnesses, which is definitely something a mom wants to avoid.”
Using Lysol Disinfecting Wipes and Disinfectant Spray helps to kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria. For the past week I've been using plenty of it to clean up after our dogs. I love the fact it kills germs and bacteria and it does a good job at cleaning too.
The wipes are a good size and have a textured side that helps to get rid of dirt and grime on surfaces. It does a good job cleaning our stove top, especially after cooking greasy foods. The scent isn't bad either. The spray helps to eliminate the nasty odors but it does have a chemical smell - even though it is scented.
You can purchase Lysol products at stores nationwide. To find out more, visit Lysol online - lysol.com - and follow them on social channels:
