Keeping you vacation germ free may see like an almost impossible task. In actuality it really doesn’t take much extra work or preparation to partake in germ free travel – it just involves one simple thing you and the kids can do over and over again. Find out how we keep germs at bay on vacation.
It may seem like an arduous task to keep you and your little one free of germs, bacteria, and viruses while on vacation – airplanes alone are home to a mecca of germs. And nothing can spoil a perfectly planned trip more than being sick – and there are a lot of places to pick up germs on a vacation. Luckily, it doesn’t take much to prevent bringing them home along with your trip souvenirs and dirty laundry.
Wash Your Hands!
One of the most common ways to prevent germs is “Lavese sus manos!” Wash your hands! As a traveling mom, I know that a convenient bathroom is not always in walking distance and you need to be prepared to clean your children’s hands even if there is no public restroom nearby.
Many antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizers contain chemicals like Triclosan, Benzalkonium, and Chloride, that I don’t care to use. So, what I have found is both effective and an all-natural, alcohol-free spray form, that won’t dry your hands, and doesn’t contain any dangerous chemicals.
Germ Free Travel with Little Preparation
Clean Well antibacterial sprays and soaps are safe and have been proven to kill 99.99% of germs. This spray also comes in a wipe form, which is perfect for air travel. It has a light thyme scent that my daughter likes and it’s small enough to fit in my purse. I spray it on desks, our hands, toys, handles, and pretty much anything that needs to be disinfected.
Washing your hands on the go is the most effective way to stay germ free, but I recommend carrying a natural sanitizer such as Clean Well or EO’s organic sanitizer for all of those unexpected cleaning needs. They are sold in Target, Amazon.com, and health food stores.
