As many of you know we have been on the road what seems like ALL summer long! One (real) vacation, one school trip, 3 press trips, and 3 trips to visit family – which means we’ve come in contact with a LOT more germs than perhaps if we had stayed home. (I don’t even need to begin to tell you the details of the weekend we had when my kids were literally barfing ALL over our hotel room….the entire night…..ick!)
Not to mention being tired and run down a bit! As our school year begins in under a month now (eek!) and we are yet again on the road for the next week or so I’ve decided to accept PURELL ‘s Advanced 30 Day Challenge because we definitely could use the extra boost starting up the school year and really for the rest of the year as we’re expecting our 3rd baby here in October! What exactly is the challenge?
The PURELL Advanced 30 Day Challenge = Use PURELL Hand Sanitizer 3x a day for 30 days which studies have shown reduce your risk of getting sick! (Based on 2013 University of Arizona Study showing a reduction in transfer of germs to surfaces and hands.)
PLUS every day there is a challenge to complete for additional entries for the chance to win prizes!

My kids are literally obsessed with using hand sanitizer so I literally have to ration it for them! They are allowed one (and ONLY one!) squirt at a time, and to be honest I really love the little on-the-go bottles with the JELLY WRAPS that I can attach to my purse (or diaper bag) so I have some with me no matter where we are. Soap and water of course are always best but when you’re on the go and traveling I can tell you that the next best thing to helping keep germs away from my family is PURELL!
My kids are really pretty good about washing hands and using sanitizer but I especially want to keep them going with it since we’ll have a new baby in the house soon! In fact in a study conducted by the makers of PURELL, classroom absentees caused by illness was 51% LOWER in classrooms that used PURELL Hand Sanitizer regularly and implemented a hand hygiene educational program vs. classrooms that did not (which is pretty huge!).
Here are a few great ideas of place to keep PURELL Hand Sanitizer for quick and easy access:
In/On your Purse
In your Glovebox!
Attached to your child’s backpack (or in lunchbox!)
Attached to your diaper bag
Near the diaper changing table
Gifted to your child’s classroom
With you on EVERY field trip!
