Fight Cold & Flu Season! Stay Germ-Free for 24 Hours! #GermFree24

Disclosure- This post has been sponsored by Zoono USA. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


So long summer, hello cold and flu season. Now that the girls are back in school, it's the time of the year where I have to start worrying about all the icky germs they are coming into contact with during the day, then carting home. Kids just have a knack for touching every surface they are near and it makes me cringe to think what they are picking up throughout the day. As much as I love sharing things, I do not like to share germs. Look, as a mom I worry about what kinds of bugs they could be getting while they are away from home, but as someone who suffers from an autoimmune disorder, I am especially worried about what they could be passing along to me once they get home. My biologic infusions strip me of my immune system, so I have to be extra cautious to do what I can to avoid contact with germs that are going to make me sick. I encourage my family to cover their mouths when coughing and sneezing, practice proper hand washing after using the restroom, before eating, and after they have been out in the general public, and to keep sanitizer on hand at all times because you never know when you are going to pick up illness causing germs. We come in contact with so many different microbes in a 24 hour period alone, it's crazy to thing about how much is sticking to our hands. Here's a breakdown of the bacteria on common surfaces that we touch on a daily basis:

Doorknob: 8,643 bacteria
Computer Mouse: 79,000 bacteria
Remote Control: 17,000 bacteria

Yuck!

While sanitizers are great at killing germs, traditional alcohol-based sanitizers only work while they are wet and quickly evaporate, leaving the skin exposed to attracting more germs as soon as it is dry. That's why I became obsessed with Zoono GermFree24® as soon as I first learned about it. 

Zoono GermFree24

Zoono GermFree24® is the only hand sanitizer that is proven to kill 99.99% of germs on contact and continue killing them for up to 24 hours with just one application. This means that I can apply GermFree24® to my daughter's hands before she leaves for school, then she will be protected for the entire day. I don't have to worry about her remembering to use her sanitizer throughout the school day since I know I had her covered before she even left the house. 

GermFree24

How does GermFree24® actually protect you for 24 hours? Easily! It is specially formulated to bond to your skin's surface and sets up a nano-molecular layer of "pins" that physically impale and destroy germs on contact. It does not rub off and also stays active on the skin's surface, even after sweating and hand washing. 


GermFree24

GermFree24® has been proven to provide long-lasting antimicrobial protection against a wide range of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses (such as influenza), fungi and mold. It does come in a spray foam variety or a traditional spray making it easy to use at home or on the go.

  2. dahlink, you never should've unwrapped kids from their plastic packaging when they came delivered from the factory :) You'd be protected that way.
    I did hear many times that mouse has more faecal bacteria than the toilet itself.
    These look very practical, I need to buy me a new sanitizer since I will be travelling to the book fair in two weeks and I hate touching anything in buses ewwww.....

    1. Sadly, the hospital forgot to mention leaving the plastic packaging on and we unwrapped as soon as we got home. I should sue ;)

      We did bacteria experiments in school, testing various surfaces and the toilets were the least infested. It was common surfaces that were teaming with it- handrails, lockers, desktops, lunch tables all ranked high for bacteria growth. A real eye opener for sure.

  3. Cellphones have more germs than a toilet too. My grandmother was going on about my cat being on the counter. I chase him down but he still sneaks up just to give me that fu look. It's so germy, blah blah blah she went on about. Well it is, I never eat off the counter anyway, so pffft. But then I pointed out how the bottom of her purse that she sits everywhere, the water bottle bottom, her cellphone, her keys, and her hands that just touched the counter have way more germs that can give her a cold than any house cat on the counter. She shut up rather quickly lol People just don't realize it. Everything they carry is a walking germ magnet. Just like a kid haha

    Sounds like a good one to help keep them at bay indeed.

    1. I agree. It's those every day items we thoughtlessly put on the counter that have tons of germs. I sanitize our eating surfaces several times a day and about died when I saw my husband plop his nasty gym back on the kitchen counter. I had to ask him if he thought it was ok to put that on the gym floor then come home and put in on a surface that our food touches. Just gross.
