Soap Soundz Review and Giveaway - Ends 11-12-10

Print Friendly and PDF



First, I would like to Thank Soap Soundz for giving me the opportunity to review Soap Soundz.  This giveaway is sponsored by Tomoson.com.  I received the Hygiene Heroes Princess Sanipure Solar Strawberry Soap Soundz.  The grand kids love it.  I think Soap Soundz is a great idea.  It encourages children to wash their hands by providing kids with fun,entertaining songs and sounds.

Frequent hand washing and proper hygiene is an essential part of keeping your family healthy.  Teaching your kids to wash their hands has never been easier and more fun.  Kids should learn to wash their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds, about as long as it takes for the Hygiene Heroes music to play once.

THE STORY OF THE MUSICAL PUMP

The story is pretty simple.  As parents, we recognized how little attention kids give to washing their hands after using the bathroom, before meals and basically, any time we asked them to wash up.  We also found that unless reminded and/or supervised, the chance that any soap would find it's way into the process was pretty slim.  Most often it was just a quick run under the faucet and done (if that).  So, we came up with a soap pump that plays fun sounds for twenty seconds.  Why twenty seconds? That's the amount of time the CDC recommends we wash our hands to remove germs.   What we found was that with Soap Soundz:

  • > Our kid's washed their hands better and more frequently
  • > They always used soap
  • > They washed for at least twenty seconds

    Viola! Sometimes the simplest solution is the best. Plus we learned early on that to be effective, we had to make the sound loud enough for the kids to hear the message over the running water.  So as a bonus, they could tell from the next room whether or not they were using soap.

    In this day and age, the need for good hand hygiene is more important than ever.  Kids of all ages (yes even teenagers) need to re-learn how to wash their hands to help prevent the spread of influenza and other infectious diseases.  They aren't suggesting that their proprietary audio pump is the one-stop solution, but it really is a helpful teaching tool and it's so much fun that kid's don't even realize that they are forming good habits.

    So the kid's version was such a hit, they started coming up with other versions. Now they have a seasonal line, an everyday line and a line of hand sanitizers.



    THE STORY OF THE SOAP

    There are a lot of soaps on the market with nasty stuff in them. But soaps that claim to 'kill' germs with chemicals like triclosan have not been proven to be any more effective at cleaning your hands than all-natural soaps.  Yet many people buy these 'anti-bacterial' soaps and introduce nasty chemicals into their bodies, their home and eventually into our soil and water supply.  They want to offer people an alternative to the nasty stuff.  Their soaps are made from only natural and naturally derived products.  They use natural skin moisturizers like Aloe and Vitamin E to help keep your hands soft and healthy.  Your body's skin is your number one defense system against germs.  They believe in clean hands, not chemically treated hands.

    They also like to smell clean and they're proud of the natural scents that they have developed.  They would  rather our hands smell like strawberry ice cream than chemicals.  They figure you do too.  Try any of their  fresh, naturally scented soaps.


    THE STORY OF THE SANITIZER

    Let's face it, there are going to be times when you need clean hands and soap and water just aren't available. While the CDC maintains that washing with soap and water is the #1 method for maintaining hand hygiene, they also acknowledge that next best alternative is to use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.  Ethanol alcohol is a naturally derived antiseptic that has been clinically proven to kill more than 99% of germs.  They use only naturally derived alcohol in our sanitizers and all the other ingredients are from nature. 

    They load up their formula with enough Aloe and Vitamin E to try to counter-act the drying effect of the alcohol.  While They don't advocate the use of sanitizer over proper hand washing, they are proud to offer a hand sanitizer that is as natural and effective as possible.

    If you would like to learn more about proper hand hygiene, don't take our word for it.  A great place to start is the CDC's website.
