Items your child touches in a day

Studies show that children touch a total of 186 items in 24 hours, including soft toys, dishcloths, and pyjamas. So it's very important to be aware of all the things your little one touches; this may help you prevent them from coming into contact with germs. Young minds have a knack for getting their hands dirty as they inquire about the ways of the world. Prevent your little one from getting into contact with germs with these simple tips:
 

Encourage your child to wash their hands regularly

Fun activities like painting, gardening, or using a computer keyboard all require contact. So encouraging your child to wash their hands with a hygiene soap like Lifebuoy’s Moisture Plus Germ Protection Soap Bar is good hygienic practice.

In a small compartment in their lunch bag, stash a small Lifebuoy hand sanitizer which protects your young one against 99.99% of germs! The sanitizer dries quickly on the skin and keeps your child safe from germs. Put a little sanitizer onto the palm, rub hands together, ensuring that the sanitizer goes all over the front and back of the hands.

Hands off when coughing

Ensure that your kid covers their nose and mouth in the crook of their elbow as coughing with unclean hands spreads illnesses. Teach your children to avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth as they are putting germs on the mucous membrane, which leads to getting miserably sick.
 

Use cleansing wipes

Frequently shared surfaces like computers, door handles, and tables require a regular wipe down with cleansing wipes to prevent the spread of germs. This process also includes your child’s school bag as it has the potential to carry bacteria. To prevent spreading bacteria, make tables and countertops a no-go zone for school bags.
 

Inculcate Personal Hygiene

Good personal hygiene ensures that your child stays healthy and free from illnesses caused by bacteria. In turn, these practices develop a healthy personality as being clean boosts one’s self-image, increasing their confidence.
