Blog Give-Away: Win a Free House Cleaning & Lysol Gift Pack

Are your kids sniffling and sneezing already this school year? Yep, cold and flu season is upon us. You'll be happy to know that we just launched a new Healthy School Kids page that provides practical tips, tools and insight on keeping kids healthy during the school year.

To kick off our our new Healthy School Kids page we are doing a fun give-away*. Here's how it works: 

  • Head over to our Facebook page and tell us what steps you’re taking to keep your kids healthy and in school this year for a chance to win a gift certificate good towards a professional house cleaning and a gift pack chock full of Lysol cleaning products!
  • If you’re not sure how to begin, just start with an old fashioned fill in the blank: I am keeping my kids healthy this school year by ____________.


The Healthy School Kids blog drawing runs from  October 6th through October 20th, at 11pm EST. At the end of that time period all Facebook fans that wrote a healthy kids idea on our wall will be entered to win a professional house cleaning gift certificate, and a gift pack full of Lysol cleaning products. One entry per person and one name will be drawn randomly

Disclosure: Lysol is a sponsor of the Healthy School Kids program. 

Update on October 21, 2010. The winner of the Healthy School Kids blog drawing is Wendy Clough Braun. Congrats Wendy! Thanks to all that added their two cents on how they are keeping their kids healthy! Be sure to visit our Healthy School Kids page to pick up more great tips.

In addition to doing our best in keeping house clean; non stop trips to wash hands before every snack & meal, packing a sanitizer in the lunch box & the children taking their vitamins; We fill their plates, lunches/snacks with fresh fruit and veggies!

We use an antibacterial spray to wash down all surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom regularly.

WASH HANDS!! Lot's of washing of the hands. Keeping bedrooms cooler at night. Keeping house clean- wiping down door knobs, cabs, phones, keyboard, etc. weekly. Healthy breakfasts too! Extra hug at the door!

It is a very convenient way to clean and disinfect anything and everything.

Every Sunday, I wash all the sheets, pillow cases, and blankets for all four of my childrens beds. Then the mattresses and pillows get the "FRESH LINEN" lysol spray down. These are the steps that I continue to take to ensure that my children have a HAPPY and HEALTHLY 2010-2011 school year.
