Lysol Back To School Science Fair Challenges Students To Expose Germs! #Lysol #Ad

    I can't even begin to describe how many of my students are currently sick with colds.  Along with the change of seasons and the spread of germs, most of them are really feeling miserable.  It's the perfect opportunity to teach them how important it is to wash their hands regularly and to cover their mouths when they cough or sneeze.  Believe it or not, millions of school days are missed each year due to student absences that are caused by illnesses like the common cold or the flu.     Lysol® has partnered with Madison Square Boys and Girls Club of America in New York City to teach students about the presence of millions of germs that invade their classrooms every single day!  The best part is that fourth-graders will be able to quantify these germs through interactive science experiments.  They are learning how germs can flourish on desks, light switches, doorknobs, and school supplies and how they can protect their classroom … [Read more...]

Tips For Having A Healthy School Year! #HealthyHabits #Lysol @KidzVuz #Ad

    The school year is finally in full swing here in New York City and I am excited about how motivated students are to learn.  Another reality when school is back in session is that kids and adults alike sometimes get sick due to the change of seasons.  Unfortunately, I always manage to catch some kind of a cold as soon as I get back into the classroom in the fall.       This year, I've been trying to keep the germs at bay by washing my hands regularly and cleaning the desks and doorknobs in my class.  Lysol® Disinfecting Wipes are designed to kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria throughout your home and even in my classroom. Cleaning with soap and water removes dirt, however, disinfecting kills germs on hard surfaces, providing additional protection.  Since my students often sneeze and cough at their desks, this is a great way to stop the spread of colds and infections.     Although I cannot control how germs are contained in my … [Read more...]

Help Your Family Stay Healthy This Winter With LYSOL®! #Lysol #Giveaway #Ad

*I participated in this campaign on behalf of Lysol®. I received a promotional item to facilitate this post and as a thank you item for participating.  All opinions are my own.     It never fails, every winter, my husband manages to escape unscathed from colds and the Flu while the rest of us in the house quickly infect one another.  Unfortunately, it is inevitable that germs eventually make their way into our home since I teach in a school and both of our boys are in school.  No matter how hard we try to ward off getting sick, one of us always starts that chain reaction where we get sick one after the other.     The question then becomes how Hubby manages to keep those germs at bay while the rest of us suffer miserably until the infection in the house runs its course.  Here are some of his tips for helping your family to stay healthy this winter and giving those germs a run for their money: Wash your hands with soap and water often.  He really loves using Lysol® Touch of … [Read more...]

Lysol No Touch Hand System and Dual Action Disinfecting Wipes Review and Giveaway

    You can never have too much soap around when you have children.  Unfortunately, most soaps cannot guarantee that using them will kill all of the bacteria and germs that you are exposed to on a daily basis.  We have always loved Lysol® products in our home but, we didn't realize how important using their products was to the health of my family until my sons and I contracted the H1N1 Virus two years ago.  For those of you who don't know this virus by its scientific name, you will probably recognize it as the Swine Flu.  Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, we all got violently sick with this flu because we did not take the necessary precautions to protect our home from harmful germs.     Since recovering from this virus, I have paid a lot more attention to the products that we use to wash our hands and to clean areas of the house that can be potential breeding grounds for bacteria and disease such as sinks and the toilet.  Obviously, this does not guarantee that we will be protected from all … [Read more...]
