January through March were some of the worst months in our house. I don’t know what happened, but one bug came in and it just wouldn’t leave. Cycling through the kids and yes even the parent. Our record for good health was being blown out of the water. I needed an action plan.

Come April, we finally all began feeling better. We started the month by heading out of the house and out of town. We needed to celebrate our good health, and let whatever may have been lurking in the home time to really go away.

I stripped the beds of their sheets before we left, and cleaned out all the leftovers and any food that could go bad before we left. I spent the night before our vacation cleaning off every surface in our kitchen – determined not to let anything sit and fester.

We’d come home to aired out beds, a sparkling kitchen, and a fridge ready to be filled with good quality foods.

Day 1 of returning home I knew I’d have to be on top of things around the house to keep our good health going strong. As soon as the car was cleaned out from the road trip, we moved on to the laundry. Two loads later, and all our trip clothes were washed!

However, living with 5 kids, the messes really started to pile up fast. Toys they hadn’t seen in a week were pulled out like long lost friends – every.single.one. Blankets were piled on beds for forts, and the experimentation going on in the sinks I try not to think about too much.

Kids will be kids, and while mine are decent at picking up after themselves, there’s always some kind of residual mess left behind. Fingerprints on the fridge, mud on the floor, and crumbs – well the crumbs are everywhere.

I wasn’t going to let our good health be ruined though. After getting back into our daily routine of being home with regular mess making agenda’s, I headed to Walmart to pick up the new Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes with Ultra Strength Blue Fibers. These 15% thicker antibacterial wipes hold more cleaning power with dual-sided blue fibers to reinforce the wipe and scrub of messes.

I use the Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes on just about every surface in our home. From the kitchen counters to the table and chairs, to the couch and all throughout the bathroom. The dual-sided cleaning action makes these scented wipes suitable and safe to use on an array of kitchen and bathroom surfaces like counters, sinks, tubs, showers, finished hardwood and sealed granite.

The grime fighting, fingerprint removing wipe helps me feel like our health will stay on the up and up. At least until a kid wipes his nose on my face…

Let’s break this down now. If you suddenly find yourself and your family sick and you just can’t shake it, follow this action plan for getting better, and staying better:

Action Plan

  1. Remove all the bedding
  2. Deep Clean the Kitchen
  3. Clean out the fridge
  4. Go on vacation, and let the mattresses air out
  5. Come home and keep it clean with Clorox®

Our vacation brought us good health and a stronger family bond. We’ll keep that going by continuing to make messes, and eventually clean them up together too.
