Classroom Cleanup Made Easy with WaterWipes

This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

As a first grade teacher, I get to work with the cutest kids! 6 and 7 year olds are so sweet. They also make some of the biggest messes and manage to get completely dirty during a single morning recess. kids-have-the-abilitySince I’m also a mom, things like dirty hands and faces or runny noses don’t bother me when I’m in the classroom. I do, however, place importance on cleanliness both at home and in my classroom. I’m really particular about the products I choose, always trying to find cleaners that don’t contain chemicals. I know that I don’t want my daughter coming in contact with harmful chemicals and I”m sure my students’ parents want the same thing for them! art-is-supposed-to-be-messyIn my classroom, we like to do art whenever it fits into a school day. Since we don’t have a sink in the room, I have to be creative with cleaning and hand/face washing, especially during art. I truly believe that art is supposed to be messy and I’m Ok with it.  messy-little-handsI was excited to learn about WaterWipes. Have you heard of them yet? They are chemical-free baby wipes that only contain two ingredients: 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. I found mine at Babies R’ Us near the diapers and wipes. I carry around baby wipes with me at all times and use them for everything.

I appreciate brands that are considerate about the ingredients they choose to include in their products.water-wipes-at-babies-r-us-cart I’ve found WaterWipes to be both durable and effective for cleaning up classroom messes and little first graders’ hands, without containing any of the harmful chemicals that may be found in other baby wipes. I’m looking out for my students so I choose WaterWipes as a safer, natural option for my classroom cleanup regimen.

Clorox® Bleach Crystals™ and Clorox® Bleach Packs™ Are This Cheer Mom’s Dream Come True! #TotalBleachControl

a-dream-come-trueWe stay extremely busy and do a lot of running around. Whether it’s getting to work, school, after school activities, sports practices or play dates, I often feel like I don’t stop moving. I also sometimes feel like I don’t ever get anything done around the house, especially the laundry. I’ve got major “Busy Mom Problems”!

busy-mom-problemsI recently discovered some new & wonderful Clorox® products that I swear were invented specifically for moms like me! Have you tried Clorox® Bleach Crystals™ and Clorox® Bleach Packs™ yet? Well, they are like a mom’s laundry dream come true! Seriously, these products are both water activated and only start working when you want them to. The water activated component takes the fear out of using bleach because there are no more spills, splashes or bleach damage to my clothing! Both the packs and the crystals are compact and easy to store, too.

my-new-bffsMy personal favorite of the two are the Clorox® Bleach Packs™ because not only is there no bleach pouring required, you also don’t have to measure anything.
Just toss one little bleach pack in with the load in your washer and walk away without worrying! Clorox® Bleach Packs™ are literally game changers for me and I’m going to tell you why!

just-drop-inOne of my biggest pet peeves is when my daughter can’t find a pair of clean, matching white socks. She has to have bright white socks for cheer practice and competitions and there’s nothing worse than watching her search the house for socks and hearing her say that she doesn’t have any clean ones! I buy her so many socks that there’s no way she doesn’t have any!

cant-find-anyI know I can always find some socks for her in her cheer backpack…DIRTY socks! It can be frustrating because I often ask her to toss the dirty socks into the hamper so I can wash them. However, now I feel more confident knowing these Clorox® Bleach Packs™ will come to my rescue and get the socks bright white again, the way her cheer coaches demand they be! It’s a lot of pressure to be a cheer mom! (Ok, I may be exaggerating a bit!) I feel like I could jump for joy over how white her socks get with these. I think I’ll let the cheerleader do the jumping though!

ready-for-cheer-practiceI found both the Clorox® Bleach Crystals™ and Clorox® Bleach Packs™ in the laundry aisle at Walmart. They were right near the other Clorox® bleach products. So easy to find!
