Fighting Middle School Germs With PURELL

This post was sponsored by GOJO Industries, the makers of PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

Here in Nashville school started relatively early in August and already my girls, now both middle schoolers, have logged in more than 170 hours at school. That’s a lot of time spent touching surfaces related to school–whether they are in the classroom, the restroom, or the cafeteria–and a lot of time spent encountering germs.

We started the PURELL® 30-Day Challenge last month and so far, knock on wood, no one in our house has been sick. The PURELL 30-Day Challenge helps families gear up for the upcoming winter-germ season by using PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer three times a day for 30 days. PURELL is an alcohol-based hand sanitizer which helps promote good hand hygiene habits which is one of the most important things you can do to prevent and reduce the spread of illness causing germs.

I’m already excited about fall and cooler weather, but not so excited about spending more time indoors and more susceptible to germs. PURELL helps my entire family practice good hand hygiene and reinforce our hand washing. We’re on the go a lot after school, whether for my 8th grader’s soccer practices or my 5th grader’s band activities, and sometimes soap and water is not readily available. I love that the entire PURELL brand of products comes in several portable options that are easy tossed into a backpack, sports bag, locker, or purse! I’ve also noticed during open house nights that many teachers had PURELL on their desks.

My favorite PURELL product for my girls are the travel size jelly packs, which come in fun colors and remind me of “jelly” products I loved in the 80s. They easily attach to both their school backpacks or my older daughter’s soccer backpack. Aloe is my favorite scent as it is fresh and clean.
