Are You Sure Your Kids Wash Their Hands BEFORE They Eat Lunch….. At School?


Kids Washing Hands?

Boy, I would like to think that my kids are diligent enough to actually wash their hands before eating while at school….but I know better. ‘Cuz I see these kids come home from soccer and football practice with muddy/ icky hands and try to “get away” with just rushing to dinner table without making a detour to the bathroom to scrub up.

And all I can say is yuck.

So why would I expect their behavior to be so different at school? Especially when some of my kids have their lunch period AFTER recess (where once again they spend their free time playing soccer and football). And it isn’t fair for me to depend on teachers and lunch aides to instill a desire of cleanliness in my kids, when I can’t seem to do that very thing myself! So I need a secret weapon. And that weapon my friends, is the Purell Jelly Wrap carrier- which I can just attach to the handle of their lunch bag or backpack (or both!)

One squirt, followed by rubbing their hands together vigorously, kills the germs that I would prefer that they not ingest along with their lunch. Are you with me?

Another cool thing?

I can tell you that my oldest never does…I catch her trying to come out of the bathroom without washing!!! Not for lack of teaching on my part – let me tell you. ICK! Kids….sheesh.

UGH! Why do kids skip this step. My boys are always guilty of this. Maybe my daughter will be better when she starts doing this on her own… maybe.
