I need your opinions. Is it better to use alcohol free hand sanitizing foam with your kids or just regular soap and water?

do NOT use sanitizer on your kids! seriously - kids NEED to get dirty. the bacteria in dirt primes their immune system against local germs (which is why we get sick when we travel to foreign parts).



wash hands before meals and before bed, after blowing the nose or coughing, and after going to the toilet. just normal hand-washing - soap and water.

I think that washing with soap and water is definitely best. But you don't always have that on hand, like when you're eating on the run. So hand sanitizer definitely has it's place there. You're smart to use alcohol free ones. I love the foam one by Scentsy. Is that what you're talking about? Here's a link. http://buysafecandles.com/products/Scent... O.K. I don't know how to make it a link, but is this the thing you're talking about? I love this stuff.
