Back to School… Back to Bugs?

Heading back to school after the summer holidays is an exciting time, but along with new friends, lessons, and homework, comes a batch of new bugs and bacteria.

Nearly 22 million school days are lost every year due to colds and viruses, and primary school children suffer from colds, on average, eight to 12 times a year.

You can’t send your child to school wrapped up in cotton wool, but there are other options for keeping the risk of illness to a minimum.

The key to preventing the spreading of germs is to sanitise your hands after coming into contact with areas where nasty bacteria are at their peak.

Here are some of the most germ-prone places to be wary of:

  • Door knobs
  • Handrails
  • Water fountains
  • Lunchboxes
  • Desk and chairs
  • Toys and sports equipment

Urging children to regularly sanitise their hands, especially after coming into contact with germ hotspots, will prevent them from catching colds and make them more aware of germs in their daily lives.

This may seem like an overwhelming battle to face, but Aquaint has the perfect hygiene solution to introduce into your child’s day-to-day routine.

A quick spray of the small, 50ml bottle of hand sanitising water will help to kill 99% of germs. Not only is it completely safe to use and harmless if swallowed, it also fits easily into a lunch box, pockets or school bag. As Aquaint does not contain alcohol or other toxic chemicals, it is perfectly safe for children to use unsupervised by adults.

So while you’re preparing to wave your kids off to the classroom, make sure you send them back armed against germs!

 

Spring into action with Aquaint

A deep spring clean is a welcome tradition in many homes, however the prospect of a domestic overhaul can be a daunting task so it is important to choose a product that will refresh the home easily and efficiently, making the job much less demanding.

Particularly practical for ensuring areas where food is stored or prepared are germ-free, Aquaint offers a convenient and hygienic way to cleanse worktops, surfaces, refrigerators and cupboards. A water-based, scent-free product, the cleanser eliminates bacteria without contaminating your food or surfaces with harsh chemicals.

There are some household chores that we tend to ignore for most of the year, but spring is the ideal time tackling some of the bigger jobs. Tasks such as cleaning cupboards, doors and the fridge, for example, can feel a little daunting but using Aquaint will make the job feel more manageable as it doesn’t need to be wiped away after spraying and it won’t leave behind any residue.

Spring cleaners with young children don’t need to worry about them getting their hands on a bottle of Aquaint or even lending a helping hand. It has passed stringent UK drinking water tests, meaning that it is completely harmless. In addition, the product can be used to sanitise surfaces and equipment easily, leaving high chairs, tables and play areas hygienic and ensuring your children are protected.

You’ll be full of the joys of spring cleaning!

There’s always a lot of talk about which items are actially necessary for a new baby and which are just additional clutter to waste your money on.

Personally, I think this very much depends on the person – what one person considers useful another may think a total waste of time.

But for arguments sake, here is my list!
