Save your Sanitizer!

A couple of weeks ago, I told you about the Purell 30 Day Challenge that was full of fun and prizes. You can see that original post here. There's still time to get in on the action. If you haven't visited  Purell's Facebook page, stop by soon. I love that they offer lots of fun tidbits and trivia along with the usual product information.

When I was asked to partner with Purell and the Mom It Forward Blogger Network, it seemed like a natural fit. I mean, what teacher doesn't have a bottle or ten of sanitizer  in their room? It's a common sight to see teachers squirt their kids as they line up for lunch, during bathroom breaks, or after recess. I have a few bottles out for my kids to squirt freely (and upon my request after a sneeze or cough) Sometimes the kids go a little pump crazy by themselves, but I recently saw this awesome tip on Pinterest that will definitely help! Just wind a rubber band or hair tie around the stem of the pump so they can squirt just enough into their little hands. I'm totally doing this on all of my bottles this year!

Another great way to keep Purell close at hand is by clipping one of these cute jelly wraps to your belt loop, lanyard, recess bag, lunch tag basket, or other stuff only teachers seem to haul around with them during a typical day.

What are your tips for keeping sanitizer close at hand? I'd love to hear in the comments. And be sure to check out the 30 Day Challenge. Fun and fabulous prizes are waiting for you!


  1. I do the rubber band around the neck of the bottle and it works wonderful. They can't put a puddle in their hand this way. You will love it.

  2. Found this hint a few years back. You'll love it!
