Not sure if your little ones are washing their hands effectively?


We all know that at first, our little ones need a lot of assistance washing their hands correctly.  I remember teaching mine to turn on the water gently, using both handles to get the water temperature just right and also so they wouldn’t splash everywhere.

Then,  I had them put a little drop of soap, the size of a dime, in the palm of their hand and touch the water just a little in order to start creating the suds.

Next, as they rubbed the soap around their little hands, we would sing:

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

When the song was finished they knew their hands were ready to be rinsed off and dried.

Now that they are a little older and much more independent, I hear a quick rendition of the song…that is, if I even hear a song at all.

However, they end up washing their hands, whether too quick or just right, I now use these adorable “Kids Pet to Dry” chenille microfiber hand towels to ensure my kids hands are truly clean.  Plus they dry their hands super quick and they have a built-in handle which makes it easy to hang anywhere.

So basically, even if my kids do a poor job at washing, they simply dry their hands on this towel and the microfibers will remove up to 99% of remaining bacteria.  Viola!  No more having to worry about whether they washed their hands long enough.

The other cool thing is that the “Kids Pet to Dry” hand towel has what’s called “BacLock” in the cloth, which is a micro silver antibacterial agent that goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth within 24 hours so that it is ready to use again.  I don’t even have to wash these as often as I do my normal hand towels because they self-purify.

They are an absolute must have in my house and I have them in each bathroom.  Shh, I loved them so much I bought the adult version.
