Go Beyond Cleaning with LYSOL's Healthing Initiative

I have six kids in my family.  That doesn't make me a supermom but it does mean I have to stay on top of things if I want to keep them from getting sick.  Because rest assured, if one gets sick it's a high probability there will be a domino effect and the rest will catch whatever virus decided to latch on and fight to let go.

LYSOL has introduced the concept of Healthing – a new idea centered on keeping families as healthy as possible, by looking beyond just cleaning and ensuring that the proper steps are taken to stay well. What extra steps do you take to keep your family healthy? Do you have a favorite LYSOL product to help you out?  My favorite is LYSOL Disinfecting Wipes.  I have at least two containers on hand at all times and use them to wipe down toys, countertops, and most surfaces in my home.  They are perfect for small cleanups and they remove allergens, viruses and bacteria from the surfaces I wipe.  Taking it even further, I even use LYSOL Disinfecting Wipes and their other line of products on countertops and surfaces in my camper.  Most recently I learned of a new way to start healthing by spraying Lysol Disinfectant Spray in my reusable shopping bags to help keep them fresh.  It's a simple idea, and one that I now do regularly.

To help spread the word about Healthing, LYSOL and television personality Giuliana Rancic have partnered together to visit YMCAs in select markets across the country to demonstrate Healthing in action. At each YMCA location, LYSOL will provide attendees with hands-on education about the products and steps required to practice improved hygiene habits in their own home, while making the idea fun and relatable to kids. LYSOL will also provide educational information and disinfecting products to the local YMCAs, along with the donation of a one-year membership to a deserving family.  It's an initiative that will inform and educate people the benefits of LYSOL products and motivate people to use the "healthing" movement in all areas of their lives.  Because cleaning may make your surfaces shine and sparkle, but healthing will go deeper than that and combat germs, viruses and bacteria.
