Disclosure: I was asked to participate in the #CleanStart campaign, sponsored by Walgreens. This sponsored conversation is written by me on behalf of Lysol® at Walgreens. Although I have been compensated, all opinions and text are all mine.

I depend on a number of household cleaning products to keep our home clean and safe so that I can have more time for my family, especially as we approach the end of summer and start prepping for back-to-school.

My twins are six and will be embarking on a new chapter in their school year come mid-August. There is a long list of supplies that I need to buy for their first day of school. Lysol® is listed as one of these items because their school believes in keeping the germs away, as much as possible, so that the kids can learn in a healthy environment.

By the way, Lysol® is the exclusive Household Cleaning Products Brand partner for Box Tops for Education™ helping Support Your School, One Clean Surface at a Time! Since Lysol® is on every classroom wish list, why not stock up?

I don’t mean to sound like a broken record, but being a mom has some unique challenges parenting young, school age children. While balancing a full-time career, and maintaining an organized household, I’m trying to keep my kids healthy by using every resource there is to make it all happen.
Eating healthy is important to our family. Living in a hygienic environment is equally as important.

Lysol® household cleaning products are some of these products that my family have been using for years to take care of ourselves and have good hygiene. But sometimes it can be harder to relay the importance of it to our kids. Here’s a fun infographic you can look over with your child(ren) to learn more about germs and some of the common surfaces they live! Hopefully this visual can help show them the importance of using Lysol® Disinfectant Spray and Wipes at home and in the classroom.


Let’s be realistic here, to a kid, cleaning can seem like a hassle. Teaching children to practice good hygiene is essential to their health and well-being. We make it a habit to encourage our kids to practice healthy hygiene habits at home and in school with help from household cleaning products like Lysol® Disinfectant Wipes in Lemon and Lysol® Disinfectant Spray in Crisp Linen.

We have Lysol® Disinfectant Wipes on top of all the toilet bowls and bathroom counters so that the kids can wipe and clean the surrounding areas as needed. They are also encouraged to clean their back packs and lunch bags on a daily basis. This helps prevent the spread of germs.

I don’t often talk about this on the blog but I have a little Lysol® spray that I bring with me whenever I travel. I clean the remote control, the tray, and other areas near or on my seat. I recently did this for all of our seats on our most recent family trip. Oh, I brought a bunch of Lysol® wipes with me too!

Do you know you can clean your entire kitchen with the Lysol® wipes as well? I have white cabinets, countertops, and backsplash (yes, bless my soul!) and I depend on the Lysol® wipes to keep them looking nice and sparkly.

Back-to-school is around the corner and my kids will be joining some sports programs like soccer and/or karate and these activities will inevitably present some challenges. But thanks to Lysol® household cleaning products I know I’m prepared to keep their equipment clean and on track. The last thing I want is for them to get sick and miss out on their school and fun.

If you also want to help prevent the spread of germs, that could be brought to your home from school or after school activities throughout the year, I highly recommend the Lysol® household cleaning products . You can buy Lysol® for $2.49 (35 ct Wipes, APC cleaners, Bathroom cleaners), as found in the Sunday Paper in the Walgreens weekly ad or Walgreens stores at the shelf (week of July 30th and August 13th).

I bought my Lysol® at the corner of happy and healthy – Walgreens, which is a 10 minute walk from our home. They are available online or at a Walgreens store near you as well.

As we all get ready for back-to-school, let’s spread the word and not the germs! Now – September 2, 2017, enter the #CleanStart Sweepstakes for a chance to win a Walgreens gift card, the featured Lysol® products and other fun Back-to-School essentials (US only).

I’m also excited to share that there will be a #CleanStart Twitter Party scheduled for August 22, 2017 from 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. ET. Put a reminder on your calendar because you don’t want to miss this!


  1. Lysol has been part of our household since I was a child so most definitely this is one of the brands that you find always in my home.

  2. I definitely like the Lysol wipes when it comes to disinfecting surfaces. I didnt realize that a cell phone had that much bacteria on it, but I suppose it makes sense in an interesting way.

  3. Lysol the go to for every parent! I trust the Lysol brand and have used it a lot every since my kids entered the school age : )

  4. This looks like a fantastic brand! It’s so important to keep surfaces and everything clean and I actually need to buy some more products so I’ll definitely keep an eye out for these.

  5. I am addicted to Lysol cleaning products. The wipes are so helpful to quickly clean up messes.
