I’ve been using Lysol products all my life, and these days, I especially can’t live without their disinfecting wipes. They were invaluable during potty training, because they made it so easy to wipe down the potty after each use – and if you’ve ever gone through potty training, you know how tiresome that can get. Sure, I’d love to switch to “green cleaning,” but right now, I have to admit that convenience and cost are winning out over natural. I’d rather my house be clean using products like Lysol than not clean at all because of expense and/or effort.
And just in time for cold and flu season, Lysol has started a new online community for those who put their family’s health first. In addition to having a place to share ideas and tips for cleaning and disinfecting your home, you’ll have access to special offers.
Lysol also has launched a campaign called Mission for Health, which focuses on giving information to parents, children, and educators about protecting oneself against germs. The Lysol Blue Ribbon Attendance Challenge, a Healthy Hero Contest, and Hand Washing Song Contest will give out $75,000 in prizes to schools this year. Additionally, Lysol has partnered with Save the Children to support families during a natural disaster, and provides resources for new moms on how to keep mom and infant healthy.
To help get the word out about their online community and the Mission for Health, Lysol is giving one lucky CFO reader a $20 American Express gift card.
