I may be borderline neurotic with my hand washing these days. With two preschoolers and a newborn in the house during one of the worst flu seasons, well, I feel like I get a pass. I’m constantly wiping down door knobs and I shudder to think which germs can be found on those shopping cart handles! In fact, when both boys and my husband came down with flu-like symptoms over the holidays, I attribute my health to my crazy hand-washing.
As luck would have it, I didn’t escape the winter without picking up a cold. As we headed out to Walmart last week on a busy day, I could just feel a cold coming on. I dropped Cbear off at preschool and then Bbear, BGB and I went in search of Kleenex Hand Towels and other items to help keep (more) germs away. You can see photos from my entire path-to-purchase by visiting my Google + album.
Kleenex Hand Towels #SharetheSoft
Kleenex Hand Towels come in bundle packs for under $5, however I was unable to find the bundle packs at my Walmart. I did find the single box of Kleenex Hand Towels ($2.97) between the paper towels and paper napkins so I grabbed a couple and threw them in the cart!
A few other items I wanted to pick up were antibacterial hand wipes and Kleenex to-go tissues for my diaper bag. And, just in case I’m not successful at keeping the germs out of our home, having an antibacterial hand soap by the sink is key. The boys love it when we buy the soap that foams.
BGB’s car seat takes up quite a bit of space, but I’m happy she is still too young to actually touch the cart (and it’s germs)! You can bet I was wiping down Bbear’s hands as soon as we left the store.
Kleenex Hand Towels at Home
I hadn’t thought about using disposable towels before. We have hand and fingertip towels in our bathrooms and I never considered how germs might be spread by multiple people using them. Sure, I wash the towels – but not in between each individual’s use! A “clean, fresh towel every time” certainly would help reduce the spread of germs. To me, Kleenex means a softness with strength. It means comfort and durability. It’s dependable.
I’m feeling quite prepared to fight off my current cold and help keep a future cold at bay with Kleenex items! I even picked up some markers to keep the kids busy just in case my cold took a turn for the worse.
My friends and I often have playdates for our 2 to 4 year old crew. The children go to three different preschools – it’s like mixing three different petri dishes together and setting them loose! Who knows what kind of cross contamination of germs are in our playroom! This week it was my turn to host a playdate – the perfect time to put out the Kleenex Hand Towels.
Cbear was the first to use the new hand towels and loved it! He thought they were so fancy. Since he can reach them on his own, I’m hoping he doesn’t start running to the bathroom too frequently just to use a new towel!
The Kleenex Hand Towels feel like a combination of a soft facial tissue and a strong paper towel. They easily absorbed the water from my wet hands and survived being used by preschoolers without ripping.
How fabulous is the Kleenex Hand Towel box? I placed ours in our powder room on the hand towel bar. You can just as easily flip the box over and let it stand up on the sink counter. I haven’t quite decided which I like better, so I may be flipping between the two locations until I figure that out!
Speaking of the box, I’m thankful that it is plain and without a logo on the front. While I don’t mind telling people that these are Kleenex Hand Towels, I certainly do not want the room’s decor to be interrupted by a glaring logo! The boxes come in nice, neutral colors – perfect for any home!
