Since the school year has officially started, (or is just about to start from some schools), moms like me are back to regular woes again about our children—how they perform in school, bullies, grades, conduct and of course, germs. Whether we like it or not, we have to accept the fact that germs are absolutely everywhere. They exist everywhere and our child’s school is not an exception. From pencils, desks, notebooks, lunch boxes – these surfaces can unknowingly cause germs to spread and infect our children easily. Moreover, our children can bring these germs to our own homes, infecting the rest of the household.
Since the weather has been unpredictable and rain has become more frequent, additional challenges for all of us moms arise this season. Not only will we have to get our children used to the demands of school, we also need to worry about keeping them safe, dry, and free from many common illnesses especially when we are not with them. With our children exposed to more disease-causing germs, we have to know what we are up against.
Schools can be a hotbed of all sorts of microorganisms. With this, PAMET conducted an experiment to identify what form and how many germs children came into contact with in a school. They found:
- 3,240,000 Staphylococcus bacteria were observed along the school desk, and 94,000 Influenza germs on books and notebooks.
- 100,000 Streptococcus bacteria were counted on the handrail of the stairs.
- On the monkey bars, 250,000 Hepatitis bacteria may cause infection during playtime.
- 2,000,000 E. Coli and 1,000,000 Shigella Bacteria were identified on the toilet
As mothers, we can protect our kids from disease-causing germs this school and rainy season with a soap that can offer superior skin germ protection, merely from the brand trusted by moms and health experts alike, Safeguard. With so many things on our plate and worrying about our children when they are in school, Safeguard helps in giving us one less thing to worry about—protection of our children from these germs.
Safeguard has Germshield+ Technology, that removes three kinds of germs (gram positive, gram negative and fungi) which can cause skin infections, body odor and pimples. In contrast, other soaps can only remove gram positive germs, which mainly cause body odor.
Before heading to school, make sure your children bathe with Safeguard Pure White Body Wash which not only removes germs, but also prevents the regrowth of germs, all while maintaining the skin’s natural germ barrier so that germs do not stick easily. Also, the formula is as gentle as water and is dermatologically tested to ensure that it keeps the skin soft.
Ask them to wash their hands regularly with Safeguard, especially after using the toilet, before eating and, and after playing. Teach them to remember this special acronym–STEP:
Mommies, let’s have the peace of mind we deserve this school year and rainy season by making Safeguard our best partner in protecting our kids.
Are you ready to protect your family this time of year? What do you promise to do to ensure your children enjoy and explore while keeping them safe and healthy?
Let’s allow them to play in the rain, learn a new sport, join a school club and more, knowing that they are adequately safe against disease-causing microbes. Worry less and let Safeguard give the best protection that our children need.
