Our best defense is good hand washing. Mainly right after school where so many germs get picked up. And the obvious before eating and all that. After school, parks and stores are my big ones to wash after.
My family uses Shaklee's Hand Wash Concentrate. Item 00191 Aside from how long this soap lasts us, there are plenty of other reason's why I love it too. And they are:
- Non-drying, gentle formula
- Conditions and moisturizes
- Formulated with natural botanicals
- Contains wheat germ oil, algae extract, soy protein, and aloe, as well as linden flower, rosemary, and arnica extracts.
- Made from sustainably sourced plant-based ingredients
- Non toxic
- pH balanced
- Biodegradable surfactants
This super mild, sudsy wash makes it so nice to do as you've always been told - go wash your hands. It has wheat germ oil and algae extract to moisturize; soy protein to condition; aloe, marshmallow (Althaea officinalis), and linden flower (Tilia cordata) extracts to soothe; and rosemary and arnica extracts to energize. So now it's more like, "Go take your hands to the spa."
Basic G Item 00525 (Highly Concentrated Germicide)
Basic G is kind of like my BFF. It disinfects, cleans and deodorizes. I use it on all counter-tops, floors, tubs, toilets, faucets, door handles, remote controls, cell phones and our keyboard and mouse. I of course do my keys, steering wheel and car door handles too....but that's normal right? I use it every where all year, but I use it more often during this season.
Bacteria, fungi and viruses can wreck havoc on your family's health and safety. Used as directed, Basic-G tackles over 60 of these pesky microbes, including several animal viruses. That makes it an excellent choice for use in the kitchen, bathroom, or pet area. Use on hard, nonporous surfaces. In addition to being economical - one quart makes up to 64 gallons.
