Why do you clean? Have you ever stopped to think about it? I mean really think about it. Is it because you don’t want funky odors coming from your house or yourself? Is it because you don’t want your kids, pets, spouse, or you getting sick? Is it because you want your house or car to look nice? Whatever reasons you come up with they all narrow down to one simple idea, being healthy. If you have never heard of the term healthing, don’t feel left out…it’s a new idea from LYSOL centered around keeping families healthy.
Are you cleaning or healthing?
The fact is you are doing both when you are using LYSOL and you don’t even know it. Because not all cleaners are created equally cleaning with other brands might just be that…cleaning. However, with a brand like LYSOL that kills 99.9% of germs cleaning is so much more…it’s HEALTHING! This spring leave the cleaning to the amateurs and join me in “spring healthing” instead!
Ever since I was a little girl my mom used LYSOL Disinfectant Spray. She used it when we were sick, in the garbage can, to kill odors in the room, on the cat box, in the bathroom, and anywhere else she deemed in need of disinfecting. I never realized what she was doing was protecting our family and ensuring that any cooties (viruses and bacteria) were killed on the spot*. That’s true love.
LYSOL Healthing Tips
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.
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.
Start with the basics – wipe down easy to reach surfaces and then move onto the little nooks and crannies.
Remember to dust around wall art, photographs and woodwork.
Use a disinfectant product, like LYSOL® Disinfecting Wipes, to help ensure you’re killing germs as you clean, and think beyond the usual places. Be sure to clean even the smallest surfaces, such as light switches.
Don’t forget to disinfect places that you don’t see or think about often, like the door knobs, cabinet handles or sink drains.
Make it a family activity and tailor tasks to specific age groups. Give younger children simpler, one-step tasks like dusting or picking toys up off the floor, and save the more complex jobs, such as vacuuming, scrubbing, and disinfecting for older members of the family.
Remember to practice proper hand washing as well after you clean, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer. Hand washing is the single most important thing you can do to prevent illness, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
