Teach Students Healthy Habits #Lysol #Ad

Healthy Habits

    It’s fitting that I should be writing this post as I currently battle pink eye in, not one, but both of my eyes! Getting sick during back to school season is one of the things that affects teachers and students alike. It’s something that occurs but it can be prevented with a few precautions.

    Back to school supply shopping is a must-have for students, school administrators, parents and teachers know that Lysol® products are a must when it comes to keeping students healthy! Although it’s difficult to prevent exposure to all germs within a school setting, Lysol® Disinfecting Wipes kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria.

Healthy Habits

    I am keeping illness-prevention on all of our minds this Back to School season and reminding parents to donate disinfecting products to help create a healthier classroom. This is possible with Lysol® Disinfecting Wipes and Lysol® Disinfectant Spray. Helping to stop the spread of germs in the classroom not only helps reduce a child’s absenteeism but can also be incorporated in teaching students healthy habits that combat illness.

    One of the ways that I try to keep my classroom germ free, and teach my students healthy habits, is by wiping down all my students’ desks at the beginning and the end of the day. Also, since I am not the only teacher who teaches in my classroom, I wipe my desk down on a daily basis with Lysol® Disinfecting Wipes. This is a great way to make sure that I limit all of our exposure to germs that could make us sick.

Healthy Habits

    Lastly, I make sure that I wipe down all surfaces that come in contact with hands and mouths including doorknobs and the receiver of my classroom phone. These are breeding grounds for germs and bacteria. Lysol® Disinfecting Wipes also remove more than 95% of allergens, including pet dander, dust mites, and pollen.

    If you haven’t contributed some Lysol® Disinfecting Wipes to your child’s classroom yet, I would make that a priority. After all, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

  3. These Lysol wipes are amazing for in school and home! Always have them in stock for kitchen and bathroom cleaning. Great way to kill those germs!

  4. We sent in several with the kids for school this year! I have already had kids home sick this year it is amazing how many germs they bring home from school.

  5. I give you credit for trying to keep your and your students’ work space germ free. I guess sometimes you catch things. I will try these Lysol wipes.

  9. I always keep Lysol on hand to kill germs around my house. We homeschool but I still worry about killing nasty viruses and bacteria!

  10. We use disinfectant wipes in our homeschool setting. We do not like those germs taking over.

  12. Lysol wipes are so great! I do love the scents as well.

  13. It is so important to teach students healthy habits as though habits will be with them for the rest of their lives. Hope you feel better soon!
