Spring Cleaning and Healthy Habits Tips from Lysol
Topics: NAESP Partner
With fresh flowers starting to bloom outside, it’s time to freshen up inside our schools with some spring cleaning! NAESP partner Lysol shares cleaning and healthy habits tips to start spring on the right note.
Handwashing: After a long day of cleaning, washing your hands is a simple and effective way to help prevent the spread of germs. Washing your hands frequently is highly recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, especially after eating, playing outside, blowing your nose, and coughing or sneezing. As always, make sure children use soap and water and wash for at least 20 seconds.
Get Your Students Moving: If the weather is nice, encourage your students to participate in fun outdoor activities that get them moving. Whether it’s hitting the playground during recess, playing sports outside in gym class, or organizing after school sports, spending time outdoors can help encourage physical activity.
Organize a Schoolwide Cleanup: Get the students involved and excited about spring cleaning by starting small and organizing classroom cleaning activities. Whether it be reorganizing a supply cabinet and restocking with favorites like Lysol Disinfecting Wipes, cleaning the whiteboards, or recycling in the cafeteria, getting the students involved will help to reinforce good cleaning habits, freshen up the classroom, and save teachers and administrators time.
Disinfect Surfaces: When you’re putting the finishing touches on your classroom reorganization and cleaning, help protect your students and reduce the spread of illness-causing germs by disinfecting surfaces using Lysol disinfecting products. Lysol Disinfecting Wipes kills 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria, when used as directed, and make it easy to clean and disinfect surfaces at home, in classrooms or on-the-go.
