Your Kids Play OUTSIDE? Obsessively Spritz them with Child Hand Sanitizer!
April 19, 2016
Most nauseating pitch of the day (boldface mine):
Ready or not…here I come! Little ones love all of the extra playtime that comes with summer; unfortunately, that also means there is more dirt and bacteria to keep at bay. California Baby’s Hand Sanitizer is the perfect product to have on hand– a quick spritz, and the lemon and lime essential oils will protect your children from any germs lurking on the playground. Keep it in your purse or diaper bag and continue with your fun uninterrupted by summer germs!
You know whose summer was interrupted by germs? Kids growing up before the Polio vaccine. Since we have vanquished that summer killjoy, I am not worried about playground germs and I am not interrupting anyone’s play to swipe and wipe. I don’t even believe in clean.
There. I’ve said it. I believe in being outside and not spritzing anti-bacterial spray on anything, unless it’s a flesh wound. I almost believe that when your kid is at the playground, filthy, that’s when you WANT her to lick her hands.
But since I don’t want to sound like a nut, I’ll shut up. (And lick my hands? You’ll never know! And by the way, I”m speaking at Town Hall in Seattle tonight, sponsored by ParentMap. If you come, say hi!) – L
Don’t tell me you touched that filthy slide? Let me wipe you down! Next time, too!
