Spring is finally here! Well, at least that’s what the calendar is telling us anyway. Some of us are buried in what seems like endless piles of snow while the rest of us are dealing with rain and wind; so it’s probably safe to say that we are all looking forward to some sun and warm weather, amiright?
In anticipation of brighter days ahead, and what seems like a never-ending Spring Break with our kiddos, we here at Mommy Dearest Inc. have once again partnered with GOJO, the makers of our favorite new product, PURELL Multi-Surface Disinfectant Spray, to tackle a huge item on our to-do list: spring cleaning. I know, I know, a chill just went up my spine as well.
This winter has been brutal. It seems like everyone has been sick for weeks on end and once one person feels better, the next man is down for the count. Needless to say, we are ready to open the windows, get the fresh air flowing, and get this winter yuck (that’s the official term) out of the house!
Because we know you have just as much free time as we do (which is slim to none) to do thorough research on the best cleaning products around, we are taking the guesswork out of spring cleaning and breaking down why PURELL Multi-Surface Disinfectant Spray is our go-to product!
It saves time. Since it contains no harsh chemicals that leave toxic residue, there’s no need to do a rinse with water after you use it. Score!
It’s versatile. This ain’t your mama’s counter spray we’re talking about here. This product can be used to disinfect and clean SO many different surfaces. Disgusting stuffed animals? Check! Fido’s stinky dog bed? Check! Your baby’s highchair that is covered in god knows what? CHECK! With a revolutionary alcohol-based formula, it kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria in 30 seconds, including flu, Salmonella and strep. It won’t stain fabrics and is worry-free around kids and pets.
Did I mention it also can be used to disinfect and clean your dish brushes, sponges and dish towels too? CHECK, CHECK, CHECK!
It’s better for the environment. Using a sustainable product is important to our families, and the fact that this product meets the EPA’s high standards for sustainable products and holds the EPA Design for the Environment (DfE) certification is definitely the icing on the cake!
If you love PURELL® products as much as we do, and are in the market for some major help when tackling this year’s spring cleaning, you’re definitely gonna want to check this one out at amazon.com, walmart.com, and jet.com
The holidays are finally upon us and we here at Mommy Dearest Inc. couldn’t be more excited. Well, perhaps if our holiday included an all-expenses-paid vacation to Fiji, but we don’t think any amount of Santa lap-sitting is gonna make that happen!
Instead, we’re focusing on what we do have: friends, family and just a touch of Botox from time to time. Blessed. But as we all know, the holidays can be filled with their fair share of stresses as well. Some of them we can’t control, like the seemingly never-ending winter break from school, but some of them we can. And that’s thanks to our new best friend, PURELL® Multi-Surface Disinfectant Spray. We’ve partnered with GOJO, the makers of this brand-new product, to tell you about how we’ll be using it during the holiday season!
Theresa’s Story –
The holidays are the perfect time for family and friends to gather at your home to eat, drink (maybe a bit too much) and be merry. There are so many great traditions during this time of year and like many of you, one of ours is preparing a meal together. Each year, we spend the day eating while we cook so that nobody is even remotely hungry when the turkey finally hits the table six hours later. However, there is one part of these holiday feasts that I can’t get down with, and that is the poor turkey.
From the moment that large, whole, raw bird enters my fridge until it is fully cooked, I worry about how to protect us all from food poisoning! My husband is the official turkey cooker so while he is slathering the bird with herbs and butter, I am a one-woman army scrubbing away raw bird from my fridge, countertops, and kitchen sink – all the while praying our guests won’t be treated to a bleach-flavored meal.
When I heard that the PURELL® brand was introducing a multi-surface disinfecting spray that is approved for use on food prep surfaces, kitchen appliances and is worry-free around kids, pets, and food – I couldn’t wait to give it a try. My family has been using PURELL® Hand Sanitizer for years to rid our hands of germs while on-the-go, so it’s a brand that we know and trust.
This spray kills 99.99% of bacteria and germs in 30 seconds so that raw turkey juice doesn’t stand a chance! And, since this product has an alcohol-based formula, it kills germs like bleach but doesn’t have those harsh and irritating fumes. Being someone with very high sensitivity to smells, I can honestly say that the scent is light and not at all bothersome.
Needless to say, PURELL® Multi Surface Spray will definitely become part of our holiday traditions as well as our cleanups around the kitchen and the rest of the house, year round. Keeping my family and home germ-free will be so much easier with this product on hand. I can even use it on all of those mangy, over-loved stuffed animals that my daughter loves so much – but that is another story altogether. Get your clean on this holiday season with PURELL® Multi Surface Spray!
Kelly’s Story –
For me, the holiday season is filled with wonderful memories. Lazy mornings by the fireplace, listening to Christmas songs for a solid month and never getting sick of them, and of course, extra time with friends and family. But there’s one thing that comes with the holiday season that I absolutely dread. Illness. Before I had kids, I never realized the full extent of misery that comes with cold and flu season. Cut to last winter. I will spare you all the gory details, mainly because I gag just thinking about them, but let’s just say there was a moment while my husband and my two-year-old were barfing in unison when I considered just jetting off and calling it a day.
Alas, we made it through. But as the cold and flu season rears its ugly head this year, I can feel my anxiety rise to the surface once more. Enter this brand new product, PURELL® Multi Surface Disinfectant.
I first learned that this product was coming onto the market several months ago, and I’m not exaggerating when I say I was stoked. I have PURELL® Hand Sanitizer in every diaper bag, purse and pocket of my car. So to think that I could have a surface disinfecting spray to use in my home definitely piqued my interest.
But, as an environmentally conscious Westside Los Angeles mom, I also hesitated to dive headfirst into the spray (metaphorically speaking of course) because I worried about harsh chemicals and odors. We’ve used an eco-friendly multipurpose spray for years and while I love that it doesn’t smell like a chemical factory, I can’t say with certainty that it’s actually disinfecting anything.
With the PURELL® Multi Surface Spray, however, I feel like I’m getting the best of both worlds. It disinfects and cleans, and its alcohol-based formula kills germs like bleach without harsh chemicals and irritating fumes. And, since it’s a no-rinse formula, you don’t have to worry about wiping down surfaces with water after you use it. Though I can’t guarantee your children won’t spray or dump water everywhere 30 seconds after you disinfect and clean, as mine typically do.
So, as my two little tyrants, I mean angels, spread their germs all over our counters, tables and pretty much every other surface in our home, I’m taking comfort this cold and flu season knowing that I’m doing everything I can to kill those pesky germs with the help of PURELL® Multi Surface Disinfecting Spray. If you love PURELL® products as much as we do, you’re definitely going to want to check this product out at amazon.com, walmart.com, and jet.com.
Happy Holidays to all, and to all a germ-free night!
