It’s cold and flu season, y’all, and it’s our job as parents to prepare for the onslaught of microbes ahead!
Good thing we have brands like Nehemiah and their kid-friendly Boogie Wipes® saline nose wipes, right?
Boogie Wipes: The Science and Why You Need Them!
Let’s drop some quick science on you.
There’s no shortage of little creepy crawlies out to get you in the world. On top of the fact that a sneeze can travel upward of a hundred miles an hour, check these stats:
- A single sneeze can send up to 100,000 germs flying into the air
- One in four kids pick their noses at least once a day, and one in five pick their noses at least five times daily
- The average preschooler will suffer nine colds a year; the average kindergartener twelve; and kids and adults about seven a year from there on
So when you live in an urban area as densely packed as we are in Toronto (2.8 million people in 630 km²), you’ve gotta keep healthy—it’s so easy to get sick.
But if your parenting experience is anything like mine so far, you’ll probably agree that keeping things clean is one of the last priorities on most kids’ lists.
Boogie Wipes to the Rescue!
Which is why there’s stuff like Boogie Wipes® saline nose wipes—a mom-invented solution for unhappy noses, gently cleaning runny, stuffy and tender noses with a mix of natural saline, aloe, chamomile and vitamin E.
Knowing kids often avoid things that are good for them, Boogie Wipes® saline nose wipes come in a couple of pleasant scents—Fresh Scent and Great Grape Scent—but it’s also available in Simply Unscented if your kid’s not down with that. And you can keep your conscience clear as a parent—they’re hypoallergenic and free of alcohol, chlorine, parabens or phthalates, so you have an extra-soft tool for the times you’re constantly wiping their nose! Boogie Wipes® are available at Walmart, Loblaws, Real Canadian Superstore, London Drugs, Overwaitea and Amazon at $4.27-4.99 CAD for a 30-count pack or $9.97-11.99 CAD for a 90-count pack.
The Battle Against Germs Never Ends: Good Thing You Can Get Some Help!
With so many distractions in life, it’s easy to forget to handle those things that really matter, like keeping your family healthy enough to handle even the toughest of times, and winter up here is no joke.
In the meantime, keep healthy, keep active, and make sure to keep some Boogie Wipes® saline nose wipes with you for those times you need them!
Good luck in the battle against our invisible foes, and until the next, I remain,
