Sanitizing the School Room

November 30, -0001

With 20% of the nation currently attending or working at a school, the classroom is a key front on the battle against the spread of germs. In fact, the average school desk can harbor up to 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat and classrooms can have up to seven times more germs than a doctor’s office.

To help combat the spread of germs and illness, Clorox and PTA have teamed up to encourage parents to organize cleaning supply stock-up events as well as disinfecting parties at their child’s school. In addition, Clorox has also distributed more than 250,000 Classroom Clean Up Curriculum Kits to teachers nationwide and are working directly with moms to host classroom clean-up events in neighborhoods across the country. According to Clorox, more than 56% of teachers say they buy their own cleaning supplies in an effort to keep germs at bay during the school year, while at the same time, only 12% of parents make cleaning supply donations.
