I’m not going to lie — I’m a bit of a germaphobe. Since having kids, I sanitize everything…restaurant tables, grocery carts, toys, pacifiers and of course, little hands. Germs are gross and I don’t want them anywhere near us. The thought of my three year old starting pre-school next month and bringing home all sorts of diseases is enough to give me a panic attack.
Despite this obsession with cleanliness, I’m a little conflicted about it all because I also try to minimize the chemicals that come in contact with my kids — and normal sanitizers are full of them. That’s why I was excited to learn about Mother’s Therapy Organics, a Colorado-based company that sells natural cleansing products like hand sanitizer, baby lotion and germ-fighting hand lotion.
The hand sanitizer is my favorite. It’s made with ingredients like organic aloe vera, goldenseal, lavender essential oil and organic echinacea, so it moisturizes your skin while it kills those germs. Plus, its cucumber smell is amazing! Now that I’m changing diapers around the clock, it’s so nice to use a hand sanitizer that doesn’t dry me out. I’ll definitely keep a stash of this stuff in my car for the pre-school pick-ups this fall — if I had older kids, you better believe I’d stick a travel bottle in everyone’s backpack and encourage them to pull it out regularly.
Also, keep in mind: I’m always a bit skeptical about “natural” cleaning products — sure, they don’t have harsh chemicals, but aren’t those chemicals the only things that really kill the germs? Not so, with Mother’s Therapy Organics. These products still kill 99.9% of germs, just like the nasty chemical sanitizers I buy from my local drugstore. Hooray!
Check out Mother’s Therapy Organics products online, and don’t forget to order some before school starts. I hope those germs stay far away from your house too!
