I am proud to bring this review and amazing giveaway to you from Lysol®! I received 2 products to review, Lysol® Disinfecting Wipes: Dual Action and Lysol® Healthy Touch® No-Touch Hand Soap System. Now, I will say I LOVE LYSOL®. It is one brand I will not stray from when it comes to cleaning things in my home and for my children. I used to be a Med-School student, which I was trying to ultimately become a Neurosurgeon. You learn so many nasty little facts about germs and the effect they can have on the body. Plus when I worked in the operating room, I probably washed and scrubbed my hands and arms about 100 times a day. I have always had the hand washing down, but the I must spray everything and bleach the bath toys came after my son, Zachary. Honestly, if you look at my son's attendance record at school, he has not missed nearly as much as other children due to illness. It could be that he has a great immune system, however I like to think it is because I am Super LYSOL® Mom and disinfect everything. My kids are wonderful at washing their hands also, maybe because I am the truly anal mom who tells them after every sneeze, cough, or touching something icky to hit the sink and wash up. Our old soap pumps had a little music thing on them to let the kiddos know when they were done washing, when the music stops you can finish rinsing, and dry off. Of course, whatever was on their hands that needed washed off is now on that pump for the next time they touch it...I Lysol® that too (he he)!
Now, there is this great new Lysol® Healthy Touch® No-Touch Hand Soap System! It reminds me of when I did work in the operating room of the motion censored soap dispensers, outside the rooms, I always joked about one taking home. I had heard that this was coming on the market, and I remember being ecstatic! I don't know if the hustle of shopping between the mad dash of people at Walmart made me forget to get one, or what, but I am so happy to have one now! The kids like washing their hands even more now because it just magically shoots out the soap, as my son says. The soap we received with the unit is the Aloe Vera & Vitamin E with Moisturizers. It just smells clean, and it doesn't not dry out your hands at all. One thing I really love about the unit, it the fact that the censor is under the spout where the soap comes out...therefore every time you are near it, it doesn't just start shooting soap everywhere, you actually have to put your hand in position to catch the soap for it to dispense. This is ingenious! The ones outside the operating room had the censor on the front and we were forever cleaning up wasted soap off the floor. If you walked to close to it or put your hand in front of it accidentally getting your paper towels...soap everywhere.

These wipes are great for after cooking, when you have all the little splatters on the stove, the kiddos spill something, or when meat leaks on the counter, YUCK!
