Bugs on the bus?

Updated: Sep 13, 2023

It is hard to believe that school is back in session. It's back too "early to bed and early to rise" for children and parents all over the world. While many of us parents were already getting up early, now we have the joy of getting the kiddos up and at 'em!

Many parents have the benefit of transporting their children to school. This enables them to have some control of what their children are exposed to - at least until they get to school!

As hundreds of thousands of children embark on school bus rides, it is crucial to consider the evident safety challenges. These concerns encompass various factors such as children crossing roads, congested traffic areas, and drivers possibly rushing due to time constraints. However, it is important to recognize that there are additional hurdles that must be taken into account to safeguard the well-being and health of our children in addition to their overall safety.

While I am confident that your bus drivers take diligent care of their buses, the seemingly mundane yet crucial task of disinfecting seats can occasionally be overlooked or not performed with utmost precision. This is where our efficient 2 Step process becomes significant. By utilizing our Goldshield 86 Disinfectant, we ensure immediate elimination of viruses and bacteria. Additionally, our Goldshield 75 Antimicrobial provides an extended period of up to 90 days of protection. Why is this important, you may ask? It's because continuous protection against harmful microorganisms significantly reduces the risk of infections, enhances hygiene standards, and ultimately safeguards the health and well-being of the passengers on your buses.

It is essential to allow a disinfectant to "dwell" on a surface for a period of time to effectively eradicate bacteria. Often, individuals tend to apply a product and hastily wipe it off, which fails to instill confidence in the sanitization of the surface. Only by patiently waiting for the designated "dwell" time can the disinfectant eliminate the existing bacteria on the surface. However, once the product has dried, its efficacy diminishes as it has completed its intended task.

This is where an antimicrobial is important. Check out this video to see how the protective layer of Goldshield will actually provide up to 90 days of protection on any surface!

Kids are dirt and germ magnets

It doesn't seem to matter how often you wash their hands and faces, kids are dirt and germ magnets.

Because of that, I send a 1.7-ounce bottle of Goldshield hand sanitizer with my daughter when she goes to school. Recess can be hard on a kid! There are all sorts of things out on the playground and you don't always have a stick to poke at something. Sometimes you have to use your hands!

That is why I am glad she uses this hand sanitizer. It lasts up to six hours and kills 99.99% of germs and bacteria on her hands. This hydrating formula also makes her hands soft, even if she is a rough and tumble girl!

I like it because I know she is protected from a host of potentially harmful bacteria and germs.

  • Goldshield Hydrating Hand Sanitizer kills 99.99% of germs and bacteria on your hands for up to 6 hours!

  • Moisturizes and hydrates hands as it kills germs and bacteria.

  • Alcohol and methanol free

  • Instantly protect and noticeably soften your hands with this hydrating, no drip hand sanitizer that won’t dry, crack, burn or irritate your skin.

Germs are all around us, from door handles to airplane trays, to your children’s toys. The most important thing you can do to protect yourself, your family, and your colleagues from getting sick is to keep your hands clean!

Most kids don't care about being clean, but they do care about not feeling sick. This is an easy way to help them not get sick and still gives them the freedom to have a lot of fun getting dirty!

You can feel safer as a parent or guardian knowing that when the kids are on the bus or at school, they are protected.

Kids are always getting scrapes and cuts

From wipeouts on their bikes or skateboards to scratches from their adventures in the woods, you name it, kids will find a way to get scraped up.

I am in love with Pure&Clean's First Aid Spray and Hydrogel. Those are two of my favorite products for treating almost any cut or scrape that my family can get.

Living in the country, our kids are always finding educational, yet sometimes dangerous activities to try. Getting scratched by mad roosters, cutting a leg on barbed wire fence, and even stepping on sharp objects are just a few of the summertime challenges we have had around here!

Whenever she gets a cut or scrape or bug bite or sunburn, I pull out the hydrogel! I have never seen a product work so quickly at taking the sting out of a scrape or bite or scratch.

Check out this link to see all of the great uses for Hydrogel!

You may have questioned why I used the term back-to-school blues for the title of this post, but if you look at these products, they have blue labels. A great way to remember that not all back-to-school "blues" are sad!
