Can we talk about germs for a second???

As a preschool teacher, I come in contact with germs a lot more than I would like. I couldn't tell you how many times I've wiped a runny nose, been coughed or sneezed on, or how much I wash my hands when I'm at work.

Sometimes, though, you're somewhere where soap and water aren't always available. That's where Prefense comes in! I can definitely remember several times that I was on the playground or leaving a child's home and wanted to wash my hands.Prefense prides itself in being "a unique, alcohol-free hand sanitizer that provides you and your family proactive security from germs that can make you sick." It is 100 % poison free, alcohol free and safe for kids. Like Prefense on Facebook here!

Prefense is available in many different sizes and types. I was sent a 1.5 fl oz pump style bottle for review which is said to contain 120 sprays.  The spray is silica based, and is supposed to smooth, soften and protect.  It has a light citrus scent, but not enough to be noticeable.

Upon applying the prefense to my hands, I like that it sprays out cleanly.   When I first rub it in, my hands always feel a tad waxy, but that seems to go away quickly once my hands are dry, leaving a smooth finish. My guess is that the silica is what protects your hands from the multiple washings, and knowing how chapped my hands can get, especially in the winter, I really like this feature!

I would definitely recommend Prefense to anyone but especially Moms, teachers and those in the medical field. Such a quick, inexpensive, healthy way to clean your hands when soap isn't readily available!

In fact, Prefense is now offering sanitizing wipes in their online store. I think this would be a great way to clean not only your hands but possibly toys/books that get sticky while you are out on the go! Follow Prefense on Twitter!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
