It's hard to believe Summer is coming to an end already. I haven't started back-to-school shopping just yet but I will be doing that next week. Even though I'm excited for them to start back, I'm always thinking about all the germs they will be bringing home.
I know one of the products I will be stocking up on and that is Lysol®. Thanks to MomSelect and Lysol, I was able to try out the Lysol® Healthy Touch® No-Touch Hand Soap System and Lysol® Disinfecting Wipes: Dual Action. Can I start by telling you how much I LOVE the No-Touch Hand Soap System?
I put the unit in my kitchen, next to the kitchen sink. It comes with 4 AA batteries, a refill and the unit itself. The soap smells really good and leaves your hands soft. There is an on/off switch in the back of the unit so the batteries don't wear down when you are not using it.
When you turn the unit on, there is a red light that will flash a couple of times. When the light stops flashing, your soap machine is ready to use. Wave your hand in front of the machine and a dime to nickle size soap will dispense. It took the unit a couple of tries before it would dispense the soap but after it dispensed the first drop, the unit worked perfectly every time.

Back-To-School Basics: Traditionally, classrooms are breeding ground for germs. Every desktop, pencil sharpener, doorknob and faucet that an infected child touches becomes colonized with germs.
The next item I got to try was the Lysol® Dual Action Disinfecting Wipes. These were awesome! I opened up the container and pulled a wipe out. One side is smooth and the other side was a little rough, but not too rough.
I used one of the wipes on my wood laminate floor to clean up gum the kids smashed on the floor. I was a bit worried that the rough side would scratch the floor but it didn't and it cleaned up the gum in a matter of seconds!
I also used the rough side of the wipe to clean soap scum off my acrylic bath tub. Again, I was worried it would scratch the tub so I didn't apply alot of pressure to the scrub and the soap scum came off with no problem. I would test an area first before using it on your tub, just to make sure it won't scratch your tub.
