LYSOL, Healthing, the YMCA and You!

Hi Neighbors!

I am seriously so excited that spring is on it's way.  Winter has lasted way too long this year.  I mean we still have areas of snow melting in our yard.  Amazing!  Anyway I wanted to ask you about your spring cleaning. Do you hustle around and open windows and start cleaning at the first sign of spring?  I do!  To me it is just so nice to get fresh air circulating in the house, even if it is still a bit chilly.  And of course spring is when I start cleaning.  I want everything fresh!

LYSOL is concerned about helping you clean and be healthy.  They are calling it healthing!  You can find out more about Healthing at the LYSOL website. So as you begin to plan dusting, cleaning, sweeping and wiping everything down, remember to also rid your home of those germs that have been brought in.  Whether the children bring them in after playing outside, your spouse brings them home from work, or your pets might even tramp some in.  Start healthing with Lysol!  You can download their Healthing Guidebook!  Be sure to find LYSOLYSOL on Facebook too!

LYSOL has so many products that can help with your spring healthing.  Use LYSOL Disinfectant Spray on your nonporous surfaces to help clean and kill germs and it can also be sprayed in the air.  I like to use this after someone has been sick.

The bathroom is the next place I like to get really clean.  Especially around the toilet.  I also need to use a cleaner on the tub area regularly because the caulk in this older home seems to collect mold and mildew.  I need something in here that will kill the germs that form the mold.

I would say the major place I need to use LYSOL is around the dog area.  Between dog beds, crates and their feeding area we need a cleaner that cleans and disinfects.  I like to use a cleaner here that both cleans and disinfects.  Between dirt, mud, snow and of course just being dogs, we are often cleaning their bedding areas.  We vacuum, wash the bedding covers, bathe the dogs and of course disinfect on a regular basis.  LYSOL works great here!

I received a fact sheet from LYSOL and I wanted to share some of my favorites with you:

1.Don’t let spring cleaning overwhelm you - take it one room at a time and stock up on products that will help you to get the job done effectively, including LYSOL® products, paper towels, sponges, and trash bags

 2. Know the difference between cleaning and disinfecting! Both are important components of the Healthing process and LYSOL® has products that can help with all related tasks. While cleaning and organizing is certainly important, killing germs on commonly touched surfaces can lower the risk of spreading bacteria and viruses between members of the family.

3. 1.      Don’t forget to disinfect places that you don’t see or think about often, like the door knobs, cabinet handles or sink drains.

4. Remember to dust around wall art, photographs and woodwork

These were my favorite!  The first two are common sense type tips, but the second two are ones I need to remind myself, and my children off.  How often we wipe down counters, clean toilets, wash out the garbage can, but we forget to clean handles on cabinets and doors.  I would also have to say that dusting around pictures and especially the fan blades is another large oversight in our family.

Another message from LYSOL:
 o   Healthing is the extension of LYSOL and its Mission for Health, the motivation behind the creation of their products that are centered on killing 99.9 percent of germs and providing solutions for the home that help promote good hygiene and disinfection.
o   The idea of Healthing goes beyond cleaning – and looks more holistically at how a healthy home helps to keep families thriving.
o   One important way to integrate Healthing into your home is to understand the difference between cleaning and disinfecting, as both are important components of the Healthing process.  While cleaning and organizing is certainly important, killing germs on commonly touched surfaces can lower the risk of spreading bacteria and viruses between family members.

LYSOL is working together with Giuliana Rancic to visit YMCA's across the US in select markets to promote Healthing.  They will be providing individuals and families who attend with hands on education about products and steps to improve hygiene in the home while making it interesting and fun for children.  LYSOL will also provide educational information and disinfecting products to the local YMCAs, along with donating a one year membership to a deserving family.

So neighbors be sure to visit the LYSOL website and their Facebook page to learn more about what LYSOL is doing to promote Healthing and see how this can help you and your family!  Have a great day and let's start spring Healthing!  leave a comment and tell me your favorite LYSOL product and what you use it for!

See you soon At the Fence!
Disclosure:I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for LYSOL®. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
