Healthy Home Guide

I know we are all looking for ways to make our homes more healthy. Clorox and the What to Expect Guide have brought you a free copy of their Healthy Home Growth Chart. The What to Expect Guide to a Healthy Home Growth Chart is available for free download here. It is nice with alot of good information to keep our families healthy. This is particularly timely info since the H1N1 (swine flu) pandemic is expected to worsen this fall.

There is alot of helpful information such as

"Hands down, there is no better way to help stop the spread of viruses and other germs than hand washing…In fact, research shows that simple hand washing with soap and water can reduce the number of infections in children under the age of 5 by more than 50 percent."

"Water vapor (plus the toilet contents–yes…anything in there) erupts from the toilet like a mini bacteria volcano every time you flush, landing on whatever is nearby (including that toothbrush you left on the sink). Closing the lid before you flush will help prevent you—and your family—from brushing their teeth with toilet water."

"Your children aren't the only ones playing with the bath toys. [Bacteria and other germs] are having a party with them too, a party that keeps getting bigger and bigger as the guests multiply. To keep those bugs from breeding on tub toys let them dry in a net or basket after the bath. Toys that trap water (that rubber ducky comes to mind) need to be cleaned regularly with a diluted [disinfecting] bleach solution, [as directed], then rinsed well and left to dry."

It also gives tips for keeping your children healthy as they grow through the years. Check it out here.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Clorox and the What to Expect Guide and will receive a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
