My PURELL 30 Day Challenge Update!

This post was sponsored by GOJO Industries, the makers of PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I walk into the boys school and echoes of coughs and nose blowing can be heard at every classroom door.  Then I watch how many things these grade school children touch after blowing their nose.  All I can think to myself is, GERMS, great, he's going to get sick.  But, thanks to PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer we are covered!  The boy has one hanging off his backpack and his lunchbox, we never want him to be without his PURELL Hand Sanitizer throughout the day!

In my previous posts I mentioned we were taking part in the PURELL 30 day challenge.  We have been using PURELL products at least 3 times a day for the last 30 days.  I actually wondered if it was even feasible but with their awesome product line we used it more than we thought!

In the past month we have went back to school, enjoyed campfires (s'mores anyone?), went to playgrounds, and even a wedding on a farm.  PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer has been everywhere along the way.  It's the best option when soap and water just aren't available.  Hand hygiene is one of the most important preventive measures one can take to reduce the spread of illness-causing germs.

Fun Fact: Studies and epidemiological evidence have consistently demonstrated the significant benefits (typically in the range of 20-50% reduction of illness of using PURELL Instant Hand Sanitizer in real-world settings:
  • 14.8 % to 39.9% reduction in upper respiratory-illness symptoms; 20% in total improvement in illness rate; 43% less missed school/work days
  • 20% reduction in absenteeism in a workplace setting
  • 50% reduction in absenteeism in schools
We'd love to know if any of our readers joined us in the PURELL 30 Day Challenge and where you used it this past month!
