How to Prevent Swine Flu during Back to School Season

Aug 18, 2009

Keep your kids smiling all year round with these flu safety tips!

Keep your kids smiling all year round with these flu safety tips!

Kids (and parents!) have one more reason to dread going back to school this year – fear of contradicting the dreaded swine flu (H1N1) virus, especially given the fact the highest number of swine flu cases occurred in those between the ages of 5-24. Luckily, since schools broke for the summer last May, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has learned much more about the H1N1 virus and has published a new list of precautions that if followed, will significantly reduce the chances of another outbreak from occurring and will also keep students (and teachers) safely in the classroom. Follow the steps below to ensure a healthy and happy school year for all:

Stay home for at least 24 hours even after flu-like symptoms disappear
Once the symptoms of the flu disappear (fever, nausea, etc.) remain home for at least an additional 24-hours. Just because you feel 100%, doesn’t mean the flu has disappeared 100% from your body. Give it an extra 24 hours to be safe. Additionally, children under 5 years old and children in high-risk, high-contact facilities (daycare or childcare) should give themselves additional time to fully recover.

Practice good hand hygiene
The quickest and fastest way to spread the flu is through hand contact. Wash hands with soap & water for AT LEAST 20 SECONDS; especially every time you cough or sneeze. Teach your children to sing “Happy Birthday” to themselves twice when washing their hands as a good rule of thumb for a 20-second time frame.

Use Alcohol-based Hand sanitizers
The best hand cleaners are alcohol-based and contain at least 60% alcohol, such as Clorox Instant Hand Sanitizer.  If the school’s policies do not allow alcohol based hand cleaners, alternative sanitizers should still be used, such as Care Wipes Alcohol-Free Wipes, however they will not be as effective.

Wipe ALL surfaces with disinfectants
Keyboards, doorknobs, and table tops are just a few of the most common places the flu virus can be spread from if touched. Therefore, these surfaces should be disinfected routinely. Try Clorox Disinfecting Wipes to easily tackle this important task.

Clorox Helps Flush Out the San Francisco Toilet Torcher

Mar 26, 2009

Since November of last year, over 30 portable toilets have been set on fire in San Francisco, resulting in over $50,000 worth of property damage. So far the arsonist has not been caught.

But now, Clorox is on the criminal’s trail. Clorox has teamed with the San Francisco Mayor’s Office and S.A.F.E. to initiate  “Operation Flush the Outhouse Arsonist” and listed a $5,000 reward and a years supply of toilet products for information leading to the arrest of the arsonist.  

“As the nation’s leader in toilet cleaning and a local company, Clorox feels strongly that toilets and bathrooms should be cleaned, not destroyed…especially in our own backyard,” said Dan Gagen, marketing manager for the Clorox Family of Toilets Products. “You could say that it’s a crappy job, but somebody’s got to do it.

Clorox Family of Toilet Products is also deploying a Potty Patrol on Tuesday, March 24 that will be stationed on the streets of San Francisco to distribute information about the effort and details on how residents can plunge into action. (See details below).


WHO: The Clorox Family of Toilet Products Potty Patrol

WHERE: On the corner of Sansome and Pacific (San Francisco, CA)

WHEN: 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday March 24, 2009

The Toilet Bowl of Rights

With a line-up of toilet cleaning products, Clorox strongly supports the rights of every toilet. The company holds these truths as self-evident that all toilets are created equal with certain inalienable rights:

– Right to be clean

– Right to be sanitary

– Right to smell fresh

– Right to not be set on fire

Hopefully with Clorox’s help San Francisco toilets can be safe once more. If you have any tips to contribute to the search, visit Comment below and let us know what you think of this bathroom injustice!

ACHOO! Preventing Cold and Flu from Spreading In Your Home

Feb 11, 2009

As cold and flu season rears its ugly head in thousands of home across the US, it’s important to remember that you have the power to stop the cold or flu in its tracks in your home. Here are a few easy, quick tips that can help keep your home germ free, especially during this challenging time of year:


Wash Your Hands
Cold and flu viruses may be spread by indirect contact. Washing your hands is the best way to prevent getting sick, especially if you wash with an Antibacterial Soap. Keeping lots of Hand Sanitizer on hand is also a good bet for preventing illness.

Sanitize Common Areas
Doorknobs, toilets, trashcans, and countertops. These are the areas where germs can lurk and colds can be passed. To stop sickness in its tracks, use a disinfectant like Clorox to rid your home of bacteria, viruses, or other harmful germs. offers a great selection of disinfectants to help you get your home germ free.

Drink More Water
According to, water can help strengthen your immune system, keeping the flu at bay. And if you do get sick, water flushes your system, re-hydrates you and washes out the toxins. An adult should drink eight 8-ounce glasses of fluids each day. If the color of your urine is close to clear, then you are getting enough. If it’s deep yellow, drink more water.

Give Your Kitchen Sink Cabinet a Makeover!

Jan 15, 2009

What's under your sink?

What's under your sink?

According to a recent report issued by, many of the usual household items you keep in your cabinet under your kitchen sink may not be as safe or as helpful as you originally thought. Taking a page from the report, which can be found at, and adding a few tips of our own, here’s the essentials you need to stock or toss to get the most out of your under the sink storage space:

Keep: All-purpose cleaners
Pick ones with an EPA Design for the Environment label, which indicates that the ingredients are as safe as possible for the environment and you.

Keep: Rubber gloves
They protect your hands from hot water and cleaners that can irritate or dry out your skin. Choose ones that reach at least halfway up your forearm like these Latex Gloves from

Toss: Oven cleaner
The chemicals in it can burn skin on contact, and the fumes hurt airways. Instead, sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda in a cool oven and spray with a mix of water and some liquid soap to dampen. Scrub with fine steel wool.

Keep: Disinfectants
Use these to clean a counter top where you’ve worked with raw meat or poultry. stocks several varieties, including Clorox Anywhere Hard Surface Spray to sterilize your counters or appliances before, after, and during food prep.

Toss: Sponges
Germs breed fast on these when wet, so be sure to store in a separate area. Also, “antibacterial” sponges aren’t a good option either. They’re likely treated with triclosan, an antimicrobial that might irritate sensitive skin and may harm the environment.
