It is already August, and in Connecticut, that means the kids going back to school is right around the corner. While I am sad to see the summer ending, I am grateful to have a routine return to our lives. It is the time of year where we are getting in the last of our beach days and squeezing in the last of our vacations. Balancing that with back to school shopping can be tough! To make it a little easier, I have put together a list of must-haves for your child for a healthy school year.
Back to School with Norwex, the #1 Must-Have
One of my favorite items for back to school is the travel pack of envirocloths. They are convenient and the perfect size for backpacks or to keep in desks. I pack one in my kids’ lunch for a napkin, or so they can dampen it and wipe their hands before or after they eat. Teachers are amazed at how well Envirocloths clean desks with absolutely no sprays or paper towels. Plus, they remove up to 99% of bacteria following proper care and use. Not bad for using just water! In Connecticut, there is a law called “The Green Cleaning Act”, which prohibits things like bleach wipes from being in the classroom. The envirocloth travel pack fits right in with this law and is a safe option for students. If you would like more information about the Green Cleaning Act, here is a video by the Connecticut DEEP useful information.
Back to School With Norwex, Accessories for the Student in Your Life
To go with the travel pack, the wet wipes bag is perfect for keeping travel cloths contained. There is a front pouch for clean cloths and the larger zipper section for dirty cloths. If your child is older, the hand cleaner would fit perfectly in one of the pockets. I suggest an older child for this because I know my kids would way overuse it, all you need is just a little dab. A lip balm will also fit perfectly in the pouch with plenty of room for your cloths. I love the Norwex lip balms, they are intensely hydrating and they come in three naturally scented options. They last a long time and are gluten-free (like all of our products).
Back to School With Norwex, Keeping Screens Clean
The Optic Scarf is one of my bestsellers and perfect for keeping anti-glare surfaces clean whether in the classroom or not. Does your child constantly lose things? Norwex thought of a solution! The Optic Scarf has a handy clip that will attach to a backpack or purse, and it comes in seven patterns. Students spend more and more time each year on tablets and computers, and the optic scarf is safe for anti-glare surfaces (other cleaners may remove the coating). The optic scarves are also great for cleaning glasses and cell phones. Back to school aside, this is a must-have item.
Here is to a Healthy and Happy School Year!
I may be in the minority, but I love the start of the school year. At the end of the summer the kids are itching for a routine again, and I am too. Maybe this will change as they get older. New school years bring fresh new possibilities and learning, and the kids are excited to see their friends again. Norwex makes so many parts of our life easier, and back to school is no different. When I am sending Norwex to school with my kids, I know that I am helping them keep their environment a little cleaner, and not exposing them to any unnecessary chemicals.
