We are a family of 3 in our household and we each come in contact with a school every day. I work at a university, our son is in preschool and my husband works in 3 high schools (sometimes two schools in one day). When you think about how many people we each come in contact with, there are a LOT of germs between the three of us! It’s no wonder I got the flu earlier this year.

School starts up in just a few short weeks. My son started a new preschool in June, but he’ll be in a new class next month. Students return to the college where I work by mid-August, the same time school resumes for my husband. All new school year equals all new germs.

My son’s preschool requires us to send supplies in and next month I’ll be sending the obligatory tissues and hand sanitizer, but I’m also going to be including Clorox Disinfecting Wipes. These wipes are so easy to use and great for the messes preschoolers make (and the germs they’re spreading.)


I like using these wipes in the kitchen to pick up spills or when I’ve using the stove top. One wipe is thick and durable enough to wipe down the entire stove top – while cleaning tough stains. When we are expecting company, we’ll wipe down the kitchen with the disinfecting wipes – just as a quick way to clean up.


They’re great in other rooms, and I use often them on my son’s toys and his table. He likes to eat, color and craft on this table. When he is going through craft phases, I make sure things are extra clean so he can eat snacks at the table. If other children come over to play, I wipe toys down before and after visits, especially during cold season.



My son’s backpack must not be overlooked. This thing goes everywhere, whether it’s full of school items, overnight things for grandma’s house or cars and trains to take on his next adventure. It’s important to me that the straps and handle are wiped down.


Now let’s think about items we use each day that are often neglected – such as your computer mouse. The Clorox Disinfecting Wipes are easy to have on hand for a wipe-down of your mouse and your desk. And how about your light switches, microwave and refrigerator? One wipe could cover all three of those items. The Clorox Disinfecting Wipes kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria. They also kill cold and flu viruses. As school starts up in the next few weeks, I will be supplying my husband and my son’s schools with containers of Clorox Disinfecting Wipes – and taking one to my own office. I can’t be too safe when it comes to germs.

  1. We go through tons of Clorox wipes and our house. We seriously use them all the time here.

  2. I wanna try these Clorox Disinfecting Wipes. We really need them here actually for every room in the house. My boyfriend is very messy and his kids are messy when they come over so this would really come in handy. Gonna try it next time I go to the store. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wipes are my best friend. I have them everywhere; in my purse, in the car and of course, at home. I haven’t tried Clorox wipes, though. I will look for this when I go shopping.

  4. I think I was born with Clorox as my twin. LOL. I have a knack for keeping things as clean as can be because we can never be sure of what might cause a disease or something. I love Clorox wipes because of the convenience and protection it offers.

  5. We keep a can of wipes in every bathroom in the house plus the kitchen & garage. Never know when & where we’ll need to clean up from kids to the cat. And, back to school germs are already hitting us even though my son was only out 1 week between school years due to our year round schedule. Even in summer months they don’t take a break so I’m wiping every surface I can with our Clorox wipes!

  6. Wow, I never thought about the importance of disinfecting a backpack…but you’re right! That thing goes everywhere, so it needs to be clean. Thanks for sharing this post! #client

  7. I always forget about cleaning little things like school supplies but seeing this reminder, I’ll be sure to do a quick cleaning over everything before school starts, Thanks for sharing!
