Clorox Disinfecting Wipes Are On Every Teacher's Wish List


Have you ever wondered why teachers have a special request list for school supplies? Every year when the school supply list comes out there are the basics in there including crayons, colored pencils, paper, regular pencils, pencil pouch, various zip lock baggies, and a bunch of other random stuff. That is specifically to cover the needs of your child.

At the bottom of the piece of paper, there is a note from the teacher requesting a few specific items that will be used throughout the year for all of the students combined. It usually lists 3 very specific items:

  • Clorox Wipes
  • Kleenex
  • Hand Sanitizer

It's not an expensive list to purchase to donate so we always do. Those three simple products are probably the most useful products among school-aged kids and I love our kids' teachers for requesting those simple things. Those are the products that will ultimately keep our kids as healthier and able to stay in school more.

#1 Kleenex

Kleenex keeps little Johny's snotty buggers contained and not on my kid's hands when they play together. Yes, we all know viruses get in the air after someone who is sick sneezes or coughs. They also can be passed on when someone shakes hands with someone who is sick or touches a doorknob or anything else the sick person has touched. So, by keeping those boogies contained in tissue and tossed in the trash, they are more likely to not be spread around as long as the other two items on the list are available.

#2 Hand Sanitizer

Hand Sanitizer. That's a statement on its own. When kids are playing in a community area, they touch everything. That's just what kids do. They love to share their toys, take turns, and ultimately share every germ they can find with their peers. It's the simple facts of school life.

Using Hand Sanitizer cuts back germ sharing and keeps everyone healthier. Yay teachers for thinking of this! I would love to supply you gallons of hand sanitizer. Is there a body sanitizer? Just wondering. It just seems like a nice disinfecting mist for the kids to pass through when they arrive and when they leave from school would be an awesome addition to the regimen. Just kidding. Maybe.

#3- Clorox Wipes [trumpets should be playing when your eyes meet this one]

Clorox wipes are the easiest way to clean up any situation. Just think about it, one sneeze can travel as much as eight meters. These droplets stay suspended in the air for up to 10 minutes. 8 meters is roughly 26 feet. That's pretty much everyone in the classroom that has been affected by this one little sneeze.

Wiping off all of the surfaces in the classroom can prevent any lingering germs from being touched and carried by the other kids.

A little story for everyone here-

So little Johny went to his friends over the weekend and caught a cold. He brings the germs backs to school with him Monday. He coughs a few times and sneezes in the area where the kids play. 25 other kids have now come in contact with the same little cold bug that it took Johny just awhile to catch. Taking a few minutes to wipe down the area you are killing 99.9% of germs and bacteria.

I was checking out the Clorox website and one of the questions are-

Do Clorox Wipes kill cold and flu viruses?

Yes, Clorox® Wipes Disinfecting kill 99.9% of bacteria including viruses that cause colds and flu.* Clorox® Wipes Disinfecting are also effective against common bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus (Staph), Salmonella enterica, and E. coli.
* Rhinovirus and Influenza A2

That right there jumps a teacher to the hero class!! I love our kid's teachers for all that they do. They educate our children and keep them safe 8 hours out of the day. I can't teach my kids like they do, I tried and it was the hardest few months of my life. What they do is amazing in my eyes!

To all the other parents of school children, please get the special list of items at the bottom of the school list. It's not just a useless list, it literally saves lives.

The thoughts and opinions in this post are mines alone. I highly recommend Chlorox Wipes for classrooms!! Back To School doesn't have to be as horrifying with a little help from our disinfecting friends!

Check out Clorox for awesome savings coupons and a full list of their products.

I received these products as a gift for free to facilitate this review. If you have any questions please feel free to email me directly.

  1. I can definitely see why they are too! Kids spread germs like wildfire! Even though I homeschool my kids, we have Clorox disinfectant wipes and use them all of the time. I love the way they smell too!

  2. I love those wipes. I even keep some in our vehicle!
