This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Lysol®. The opinions and text are all mine.
October is here and ’tis the season for fall sports and the back-to-school routine. This month kicks off my favorite time of year for the obvious reasons (pumpkin spice, crunchy leaves, do I have to go on?!) It’s also the most difficult time of year when it comes to juggling activities and attempting to steer clear of germs. It seems to me that as soon as school is back in session the germs are rolling in left and right and I’m playing defense more than ever which is exactly why I want to share one of my favorite tools for doing just that, Lysol® Laundry Sanitizer.
Vinnie’s favorite thing to do these days is meander around the yard with his digger and dump trucks digging into any dirt he can find. The older boys are now in 4th and 6th grade and if they aren’t digging in the dirt with their little brother they’re riding quads or playing football after school (and in my front yard until after dark). Needless to say, we’ve got three stinky, dirty boys and the laundry piles up FAST. Lysol Laundry Sanitizer is one of my favorite laundry tools because it eliminates 99.9% of bacteria that can cause illnesses and create lingering bad smells. It’s specifically designed to sanitize clothing and it doesn’t contain any chlorine bleach so it’s safe to use on most fabrics including whites, colors and darks. Basically it’s the best thing to ever happen to the wardrobe of my adventure seekers…
Like I mentioned, cold and flu season is in full force this time of year which means I’m extra attentive to what and how I clean – laundry included. I love that the Lysol Laundry Sanitizer is safe for everyone’s clothes (including babies and toddlers). I also love that in addition to sanitizing and killing germs, it eliminates any lingering odors (helloooo stinky boys!), it’s definitely a must have for moms with busy kiddos.
If you know me, you know I don’t need an excuse to shop at Target, but I never let my Lysol Laundry Sanitizer or coffee grinds get too low, so we re-upped our supply of both this week with a trip to our happy place. You can find the Lysol Laundry Sanitizer in the laundry care aisle at Target, with the laundry additives.
If you’re reading this, I know that you probably don’t need an excuse to visit your local Target either, but I have one for you! You can save 5% off Lysol Laundry Sanitizer – Crisp Linen 41oz with a special Cartwheel offer (valid 10/29-11/11) so run out while this offer is still valid!
If you’ve never used a laundry additive before, here’s a quick rundown on how to do just that:
- For standard machines: Add 2 capfuls each filled to line 1 of the dosing cup to the fabric softener compartment or directly to your rinse cycle wash
- For HE machines: Add 2 capfuls each filled to line 2 of the dosing cup to the fabric softener compartment or directly to your rinse cycle wash.
- To sanitize: add to rinse cycle and leave product in rinse cycle for 16 minutes.
You can find all the instructions on the back of the bottle, but I figured you may have some questions while you’re here, and if I can answer them – it’ll save you a step so there you go!
Adding Lysol Laundry Sanitizer is just one step I take to keep my kids healthy and germ free during cold and flu season. Be sure to follow along with me on Instagram for more tips and tricks! Now run on out to Target to snag this Cartwheel offer, hopefully you can squeeze in some time for a coffee and a little aisle browsing while you’re there – hooray for a mom break!
