It’s no secret how prevalent smartphones and tablets are becoming to our children’s education and playtime. What is a secret, however, is how many germs accumulate on these mobile devices throughout the day. I was horrified to learn that 82% of mobile devices have some form of bacterial contamination!
It makes sense; all of the germs from our hands are transferred to the screens of our mobile devices every time we touch them. So, when our kids play Angry Birds on our tablets, they are exposed to these germs. This bacterial accumulation is especially dangerous when they put the devices their mouths (as all of our kids tend to do). That’s why it’s absolutely essential to clean our technology just as frequently as we wash our hands.
I recently came across one company that has developed a solution that not only cleans device screens, but also protects children from potentially harmful chemicals found in traditional cleaning supplies. WHOOSH! is an all-natural, non-toxic device cleaner, and unlike many other household solutions, it does not contain alcohol, acids, ammonia, chlorine, or any of that other junk that’s harmful to ingest. In fact, WHOOSH!’s formula so completely safe that it actually can be drank!
In order to remove germs and prevent future build-up, WHOOSH! is made with biodegradable surfactants and a proprietary formula that provides a nano-thin invisible coating that resists fingerprint and dirt buildup. With a simple spritz of WHOOSH! And a wipe with the provided reusable antimicrobial cloth, mobile devices are left clean and shining like new.
WHOOSH! Has previously been recognized as a safe technology accessory for any tech-friendly family. They recently won a 2015 Family Choice Award, one of the most family-friendly consumer award programs in the nation that recognizes the finest products and services that enrich the lifestyles of children and families.
WHOOSH! Comes in three different sizes: Pocket ($6.00), Go ($10.00), and Duo+ ($20.00). WHOOSH! is available at whoosh.com and in 5,000 retail locations across North America and Europe including at Amazon, Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire and Staples Canada.
