There is nothing I hate more than when one of my family members is sick. Over the years we have developed our own family cleaning routine to prevent the spread of germs. LYSOL® Disinfectant Spray and Disinfecting Wipes are part of our arsenal against germs viruses, bacteria, mold and mildew.
Our routine started when Boo was a toddler. He had been sick for so long that the doctor diagnosed him with asthma. At first we assumed Boo had just inherited that “bad lung” gene from me. But nothing seemed to help. Then one day I was talking to a senior citizen friend with asthma. She told me her asthma had almost completely disappeared when she moved out of her old house. Turned out that she had water damage under her bed that had been causing her breathing difficulties.
We had not lived in our house very long at that time, and it was over forty years old, so we decided to pull up the corner of the rug under Boo’s crib to see what we would find. The floor underneath was fine, but when we pulled the crib away from the wall, we noticed the wallpaper had a few black spots. We pulled the paper off the wall and there was about a two foot square covered in mold. We immediately attacked it with LYSOL® Disinfectant Spray and scrubbed the whole area thoroughly (wearing gloves). The mold never came back and Boo’s asthma cleared up fairly quickly.
Since then, about twice a year, or whenever one of us has been sick or been in contact with someone who is sick, we perform the following spring cleaning and disinfecting routine: First, we use the disinfecting wipes and wipe down every door knob, light switch, remote control, telephone receiver, computer mouse and keyboard. Next, we empty all the trashcans, rinse them out and spray them down with the disinfectant spray.
Now LYSOL® is introducing the concept of Healthing. Because we don’t just clean to make things look nice – we do it to help keep our families healthy.
And LYSOL® is the perfect brand to initiate HEALTHING because of its great collection of products. LYSOL® Disinfectant Spray and Disinfecting Wipes kill 99.9% of mold and mildew, bacteria and viruses when used as directed.
To help spread the word about Healthing, LYSOL® and television personality Giuliana Rancic have partnered together to visit YMCAs in select markets across the country to demonstrate Healthing in action.
