It can’t be said enough that the most effective way to keep our kids healthy is to make sure that they wash their hands often with antibacterial soap. Since young, I constantly nag remind Little Edison to wash his hands before meal time, after play and after using the toilet.
The biggest reward for this top-notch nagging mom is that I have a son who will automatically washes his hands without being told. That’s how I keep my household healthier in the long run too.

Now, I’m going to share with you my personal secret handwashing tips.
1. Use Lifebuoy’s Colour Changing Handwash and ask him to look for the ‘green’ signal. GREEN means CLEAN!
The ‘green means clean’ concept is fun and easy for the kids. When the lather turns green, this means that 99.9% of germs have been removed and it’s time to rinse off. By doing so, they get complete germ protection, and we, mothers have visible proof that our children’s hands are completely germ free.
2. Frequent reminders since young that he must wash his hands after coming in from outdoors, prior to eating, after playing in public places, and after using the toilet. Over time, all these reminders will turn into a habit and I don’t need to remind him at all now.
3. Promote handwashing as a fun and positive family activity before mealtime and at appropriate times to teach my kid on good hygiene habit now and later in life. Let’s just do it together!
4. Keep a sturdy step stool, Lifebuoy antibacterial soap and clean towel in the bathroom that he can reach and use. It’s a good idea to keep one set in the kitchen as well.
5. Paste his own handwashing poster in the bathroom as an encouragement for him to continue with his good handwashing habits. Every time he sees his poster, he raises his clenched fists and proudly says, “Mama, see! I have hulk power smash!”
