LYSOL Healthing – More Than Just Cleaning

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for LYSOL®. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Since I have 3 kids (ages 14, 10 & 4) I’m always worried about germs, especially since my oldest has asthma and him getting a cold usually means lots of meds and steroids.  One of the ways we try to keep germs away is by using our No-Touch Hand Soap System that LYSOL®sent to our family to try. LYSOL® also has a new concept that they are introducing called Healthing.  What is Healthing? Healthing is a new idea centered on keeping families as healthy as possible, by looking beyond just cleaning and ensuring that the proper steps are taken to stay well.

LYSOL Healthing

LYSOL® offers these 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).

When I clean, of course I want to make sure that everything looks nice & neat but I also want to make sure that the germs & dirt are gone for good.  I love using LYSOL® Disinfecting Wipes because it kills 99.9% of viruses & bacteria and 95% of all allergens.  You can use the wipes anywhere in your home, even on wood, so it’s a great thing to have around!

LYSOL Healthing

To help spread the word about Healthing, LYSOL® and Giuliana Rancic have come together to visit YMCAs in select markets across the country to show people Healthing in action. At each YMCA location, LYSOL will provide attendees with hands-on education about the products and how to have improved hygiene habits in their own home, while still making the idea fun for kids. LYSOL will also provide educational information and disinfecting products to the local YMCAs, along with the donation of a one-year membership to a deserving family.

To find out how you can become a part of the LYSOL® Healthing Initiative, you can visit the LYSOL®website or find them on Facebook.  You can also download the “What Is Healthing?” guidebook to help you as well.
