The kids are back in school so what does this usually mean? It means one of them will bring home a cold, it happens every year. However it doesn’t have too. The best defense is a great offense. This means you should arm your children with the knowledge of germs and the best way to keep them at bay.
Classrooms are often breeding grounds for bacteria. In fact, studies have shown that germs can live on surfaces like desktops and doorknobs for up to two days or more. Disinfecting commonly touched classroom surfaces with a product such as Lysol Disinfecting Wipes can help stop the spread of germs.
One item on our supply list is disinfectant wipes, we always purchase Lysol brand. Teachers, parents, and children can read up on some healthy back to school germ fighting habits at Lysol’s Back to School page. Kids can learn what to do and what not to do while having fun in the Kidz Zone!

I myself have to admit I don’t often think about germs, until my children are sick and sneezing all over the place spreading their germs like wild fire. As part of the Lysol Mission for Health initiative, Lysol maintains dedicated relationships with the Global Hygiene Council, the National Education Association, pediatric expert Dr. Laura Jana, and the CDC in order to improve the health and well-being of students and schools nationwide. Right now our children are like a sponge now is the time to teach them how to keep themselves and those around them healthy but doing simply task like washing their hands and using Lysol disinfectant wipes when you are not close to a sink.
