Everyone who comes to my house in the winter is greeted with this.
I mean that literally. It’s hanging off the front door knob.
If you do not use it, you are either foolish, or deluded or quite possibly both. Anyone who lives with children who are in grade school — or preschool, or in playgroup, or who ever darken the door of a McDonald’s ballpit – all of these people know that the indoor play season is one ripe with germies and creepy crawlies of all kind. Hand sanitizer Must. Be. Used.
[NB: My husband, Paul, also recommends one of these. He’s become an evangelist for these things. Oh, and for people the web over who are typing comments right now about the virtues of good ole’ soap and water, I get it, okay? But sanitizer beats the line to the ladies room…]
If anyone knows of a hand sanitizer that is nice smelling, doesn’t turn your skin into ash, and is maybe even affordable, please let me know. The best recommendation will receive a complimentary Magpie-Girl magnet! Which isn’t actually strong enough to affix a crayon drawing to the fridge, but is kinda cute because it has my little birdie on it! (Guess who discovered printable magnet paper! Oh, the cleverness of me.)
