Scotch-Brite Botanical Wipes Giveaway



Each classroom in my kids' elementary school maintains a Wish List of items that the teacher would love to have: pencils, printer ink, printer paper, wipes, that sort of thing. Parents check out the Wish List and buy one or two items so that the teacher and the class can focus on learning.

One item that's always on the Wish List is disinfecting wipes. Kids are kids, and they'll always come in after recess and lunch with grubby, sticky hands that they use to pat, handle and touch everything. You can always tell a child to wash his hands in the sink, but you can't wash a desk in the sink! So having wipes in the classroom is key. Most of the time, disinfecting wipes and kids don't really go together -- think of all the chemical residue! -- but Scotch Brite has come up with a disinfecting wipe that's safe to use around kids, pets, even food. They're called Scotch Brite Botanical disinfecting wipes, and if you're buying disinfecting wipes for your child's classroom, you should check them out.


The Basics

Here's some information about new Scotch-Brite wipes:

3M Scotch-Brite™ is introducing “no-rinse” Botanical Disinfecting Wipes that kill 99.9% of household germs*, kill cold & flu viruses and leave school surfaces – such as desks, tables and chairs – residue-free.

Surprisingly, most disinfecting wipes that are used in homes or schools (on any non-porous surface) require rinsing after wiping. The “no-rinse” feature found in the Scotch-Brite™ Botanical Disinfecting Wipes provide a safe and effective way to make sure your kids are able to clean and breathe easy while at home, daycare or school.


The Bongga
3M sent me a can of Scotch-Brite wipes to try out, and when I received them, I meant to donate the can to one of my kids' classrooms -- but after smelling them and using one of the wipes to clean up the breakfast table, I decided to keep them at home! I guess I'll just have to go back to the store for more :) Here's what I love best about them:

* This product uses CleanWell, a thyme-based formula that's safe for kids and kills germs naturally. I know and love CleanWell hand sanitizers and disinfectants, and I use them all the time on my kids, so I feel good about using these wipes around my kids.

* It doesn't smell harsh or acidic or chemical-ly (is that a word? you know what I mean). The Lemongrass scent is really mild and pleasant, and quite possibly the best-smelling wipes I've ever smelled.

* You don't have to rinse the surface off after wiping.


The Blah
In the interests of being more eco-friendly, I'd love to see a Scotch Brite Botanical disinfecting spray, that can be used with a washable cloth.


The Bottom Line
Scotch-Brite Botanical disinfecting wipes are a must-have in every classroom!

Hand washing is a very big part of keeping my son healthy and germ-free. His teacher has them wash their hands often and as soon as he gets home he washes again. Other than that we take vitamens.

I don't think there's a whole lot you can do once your kids are at school. I like to give them a multivitamin, as well as extra vitamin C. But I also like to keep all of our door knobs, cupboard handles, and remote controls wiped down with disinfecting wipes, in hopes that I stop germs from coming in the house!
