A great progression from nappy to self-wiping providing a sense of fresh cleanliness, Kleenex® Flushable Wipes allow kids to take care of their hygiene themselves, while still enjoying the benefits of moist wipes.
Start to like soap
Show them how to enjoy soap. Invite kids to have fun with it – lather up and make beards, pointy ears, whatever they can imagine. Kids can never have enough soap. Bathe their bodies and wash hair on a regular basis. The cleaner they are, the fewer germs. They’ll learn there’s nothing like the fresh, clean feeling one gets from bathing or showering.
Get the business right
Washing hands after visiting the toilet is essential. It helps stop the spread of germs. It’s also a good idea to wash hands before making or eating food, and after handling animals – as well as being around someone who is coughing. Try to leave the toilet clean. Not only is it polite, it encourages good standards of personal hygiene.
Use the correct place to get rid of things
If toilet training, make sure the potty is emptied in the toilet bowl and not in the rubbish bin. Just like washing hands and minimising contact with germs, it is very important not to allow toilet waste to possibly contaminate other family members. Also, nappies should be wrapped in plastic before being binned.
Doing the right thing with the toilet roll
Make sure you place the toilet roll on a holder, instead of just holding the roll and tearing sheets off. Less handling of toilet paper minimises the chance of germs transferring from user to user. When the toilet roll is finished, just pop it in the bin. Don’t use it for playing with or paper mache modelling, as it may spread germs.
Make sure the scene is clean
When visiting public toilets or less maintained toilet facilities, as well as checking out the seat, make sure you observe just how clean the floor is. Depending on whether it is dry or not so, you may be wary about letting your clothes or even belt buckle come in contact with a germ-laden environment.
Also, be hesitant to use toilet paper that is damp or even wet – it may not have occurred by splashed water from previously washed hands.
Take the comforts of home with you
Having a pack of flushable wipes in your handbag or car glovebox can be a lifesaver. Aside from quick emergencies like spilled milkshakes, sticky chip or chocolate fingers, you’ll never know what emergencies may arise with car-tripping tummies and bottoms – let alone visiting parks and beaches.
Be prepared, wherever you go
If you’re travelling overseas, depending on what part of the world you venture to, going to the toilet may be a whole new experience. Flushable wipes can be really handy – for you or the toilet seat – as there’s a greater chance your tummy may have a reaction to different water, food and hygiene standards.
