Cold and flu season are just around the corner and my daughter is in preschool for the first time ever. I’ve been blessed with the chance to stay home with my little one so our exposure to the germs that float around classrooms and day cares has been minimal. According to our ECFE teacher we should expect that first year to be filled with viruses as her system attempts to build antibodies for all those lovely childhood illnesses. Who’s excited? Not me.
In hopes of preventing the germs from spreading through our family like wild fire I will be on the defensive as best as I can. I plan to talk to my daughter about proper hand washing as well as washing toys and surfaces around my home.
What better way to start the conversation than with a craft! Check out this adorable germ monster craft tutorial and let the creative inspiration begin!
I don’t want to spread chemicals throughout my home on a daily basis and have a long list of “safe” cleaning products at hand without a great handle on what is truly safe for my family. How does the average person dissect all of those terms? I have a few new products from Seventh Generation and was thrilled to see that their web site had a simple to understand explanation of their product terms (see here). I did a quick search on thymol (a key ingredient in their disinfecting products) and I didn’t come across any major red flags.
How do you research the cleaning products you use for your family? Do you have a tried and true product that you stand by? Have you tried a Seventh Generation product? Check out these cold and flu prevention products.
