As the temperature begins to drop and the school bells continue ringing, Lysol wants to help you and your students combat unwanted germs. Here are some helpful tips to prevent getting sick from the flu and common cold:

  • Wipe It Down – The flu virus can live on a hard surface for 48 hours. Make sure to disinfect commonly touched surfaces, like keyboards, doorknobs and desks with Lysol Disinfecting Wipes to kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria and create a healthy classroom.
  • Avoid Sick Days With approximately 38 million school days missed each year due to influenza alone[1], remind students to practice healthy habits such as proper hand washing and sneezing in the crook of their arm to help keep sick days to a minimum.
  • Stack up the Supplies With all the sticky fingers and germy hands, make sure there are plenty of cleaning supplies stocked in the classroom. Try Lysol Disinfecting Spray to combat those airborne invaders.
  • Collect, Clip and Earn Cash for SchoolsEncourage parents to give back to their child’s schools. Select Lysol cleaning products are eligible for Box Tops for redemption, so schools can earn cash and create a healthy experience for students all year round.
