When kids reach middle school, their worlds are often rocked by their changing bodies, their changing classes, their changing clothes for gym class or after-school sports … And don’t get me started about their changing attitudes toward Mama and Daddy stepping in to help them with this, that and the other — especially if it’s in front of their friends.
But c’mon. We were in middle and high school, too — and even if we didn’t want to admit it, we needed some serious help from our parents and were glad deep down to get it. So, it’s in that spirit that I share Norwex’s September customer specials — and some other Norwex products especially good for helping kids manage themselves and their environment while they’re at school. They are perfect for building what I call the “School Kit” — a wondrous combination of Norwex products that will equip your kid to deal with the unexpected and, frankly, keep his trumpet from becoming a science experiment or her locker from receiving a letter of condemnation.
Behold ‘The School Kit’
First, check with school officials to make sure all products — such as deodorant and lip balms — comply with campus rules. Then consider letting your kiddo choose a rocking cool toiletry bag (hanging bags are especially nice) known forevermore as “The School Kit.” Ideally, it’s kept in a locker or some other relatively private area where your child can reach for what she needs. Perhaps smaller bags holding these products can be stored in a larger lunch bag, back pack or instrument case to make them accessible throughout the day.
Among the items to consider including:
Back-to-School-Essentials Package Check it out: Norwex’s Natural Hand Cleaner (Did you see that? natural), hand cream and lip balm are on sale in September. We’ve bundled them for $28.97. Contact me to receive this special deal.
Sportzyme: Holy moly, do teens with sports shoes and equipment bags need this stuff. Sportzyme’s special bioactive formula contains dormant, nonpathogenic, fast-acting microbes and enzymes that break down and eliminate organic residues that cause odors.
Natural Deodorant Stick: Norwex uses a blend of essential oils and natural (there’s that word again), sweat-controlling ingredients to help safely and effectively combat odor-causing bacteria. Formulated with Aloe Vera, Tea Tree and Sage, it helps soothe skin and will keep your kid feeling fresh and clean throughout the day.
Adult Silver Care Tooth Brush On contact with water, the silver covering the toothbrush’s base releases active ions that eliminate 99.9 percent of the bacteria commonly found on toothbrushes. This natural, self-sanitizing process also prevents the growth of these bacteria. The unique, replaceable Silver Care Plus Head snaps in and out, and the plastic handle is reusable. So if this toothbrush is used daily and sits in your kid’s locker for a school year, rest assured it’s safe to use. And don’t miss Norwex’s toothpastes — which are free of chemicals found in most toothpaste and are among the new products we’ve launched for Fall 2016.
Stainless Steel Drinking Straws: So, how cool (and cool-looking) are these? Even though most disposable plastic straws are recyclable, the majority of them are not recycled and often end up in landfills. Also troubling is that many straws contain harmful BPA, a known endocrine disruptor. Here’s a great way to promote good health and help the environment. A cleaning brush is sold separately.
Body Pack: Norwex’s ultra-gentle microfiber is super soft on sensitive skin — and tough on removing excess oil contributing to those dreaded pimples. Even better: Norwex’s microfiber contains a silver agent in the cloth that goes to work with self-purification properties against the mold, fungi and bacterial odor within 24 hours so that it is ready to use again. So, in other words, your kid can squirrel a cloth away in her locker for several weeks at a time, and you won’t need to worry about her receiving that condemnation notice.
