Healthy Hands - Musical Hand Wash Timer {giveaway}

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
A WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED!




Healthy Hands ~ Musical Hand Wash Timer
~ plays music and lights for 20 seconds while you wash ~

Doctors and experts agree that washing with soap and warm water for 20-25 seconds eliminates germs and bacteria to a level that will lead to healthier hygiene.


As a mom of two active (and dirty) children hand-washing becomes one of those things in my life that I am constantly telling my children to go do....and re-do.

All mom's know that kids just don't want to take the time out from whatever they may be doing to wash their hands properly. Most times hand washing consists of a couple of quick seconds under the cold water. We all know this doesn't even take the surface dirt and grime off a child's hands. Kids need to scrub and put a little effort into getting those grubby little hands clean.

And, then one day a short time ago Musical Hand Wash Timer arrived at our doorstep for us to try out. Musical Hand Wash Timer's are such a simple thing, yet it stopped the kids dead in their tracks the first time they found the timer on the soap dispenser. All of a sudden hand washing was a fun activity and they just couldn't get enough chances to run in and press the soap pump.

Musical Hand Wash Timer is a flexible topper which fits most liquid soap pumps. We were sent both the Cars and the Princess timer. These pumps play their tunes for more than 1000 times, and at the speed we are going through soap now, it won't be long before we will have to switch out the characters. Kids are told to keep their hands under the running water, scrubbing the whole time the music and lights are playing. Simple! Yet, very effective.

Moms, I think you will agree these are a great way to get your kids to wash up and stay the course in order to get the job done properly. Kids, you are going to love when your mom says to go clean up. What a great, fun idea!

Buy ~ Purchase for the price of $3.99 (US)...a fabulous deal considering the length of time these will work before having to replace them ~

i would never need this.. at least not anytime soon.. but it is SERIOUSLY so very cool!

i suppose though i could use it on doug.. time him washing his hands.. lol- but he might not appreciate it much!

Ode to Motherhood said...

Oh, how cute and fun! I'm kind of a clean freak, and wouldn't mind this in our house.

Kristie said...

My daughter is usually in and out of the bathroom super quick so she can get back to playing, so this would definitely making washing her hands more fun and keep her in there longer....maybe well beyond the recommended hand washing time! LOL!

This would be perfect for my sister. She has 3 young kids. I've seen them go wash their hands - they are back in about 10 seconds and we all know that isn't long enough to even get their hands wet. This would make washing up lots of fun so that they would actually do it.

It'd be perfect at my house. I've got an almost 4 year old who thinks that hand washing lasts about 15 seconds. I've got an almost 16 year old who thinks about the same thing!! Maybe I could put it in his bathroom as a subtle hint! lol

Mandatory Entry:

Question: Tell me how the musical hand wash timer would be helpful in your home.
Answer: I have my grandson each day until my daughter & son inlaw pick him up after work and he is now in kindergarten and the germs he picks up now are more plentyful and boys will be boys and rush through washing and I try to encourage him to wash longer by saying his ABC's etc but he still wants to rush so maybe this creative product will do the trick & get him to wash longer in a fun enjoyable way, so thanks for the offer

I have 2 little boys at home so it would most definitely be great

hippo chick said...

Pam, I think this would be a good idea for homes with small children. There is a sign in the bathroom at a Bob Evan's restaurant in Indiana that says to sing one verse of Old MacDonald while washing your hands.

I love it.

Queenie Jeannie said...

Unless I'm standing over Bella, she never washes long enough! And she HATES being "supervised"!!! This would allow her her independence while making sure she's nice and clean too.

FABULOUS!

Honestly? Everyone in the household would benefit - including me. We all tend to kind of just go through the motions with a quick "rinse" - when a thorough wash is so important to keeping us healthy and germ free.

We have three children in kindergarten, two of which are immunocompromised. While they are good at washing their hands, I sometimes have to remind them to go a bit longer than 5-10 seconds, lol!
