Dial Campaign for Clean Hands Giveaway

If there is one thing my kids will remember me for when they grow up, it will be my famous question, "Did you wash your hands?" I always have my kids wash their hands when coming back from being outside, after using the bathroom, etc.

And we do the 30-second rule too. "Warm water, wash for 30 seconds, then rinse."

As our pediatrician put it, "Would you rather puke, or wash your hands?" Which I make sure I ask my kids whenever they complain about having to wash up.

I had the opportunity to review Dial Complete and our whole family loves it! We tried their "Soothing White Tea" scent and it smells heavenly. It definitely gives me more incentive to wash my hands, just because I love the smell so much.

In addition to the delicious scent, the soap foams up nicely and contains lotion, something very important to me and my children as we all have sensitive/dry skin.

Dial Complete recognizes the importance of good hand washing and has put together a Campaign for Clean Hands. Based on findings from the Dial Complete® brand's Campaign for Clean Hands survey, moms are the top influence in teaching their children proper hand washing.

When asked, "When you were a child, who taught you proper hand washing?," 76 percent of the individuals surveyed answered their mother was responsible for teaching them to wash their hands. So I'm obviously not alone!



The Campaign for Clean Hands is a program designed to engage and educate families about the importance of proper hand-hygiene.

The campaign's Web site features:
  • a video contest for kids
  • an online "DC Germ Blaster" video game
  • a variety of fun, educational hand washing materials parents can print and share with their children, including a home hand washing chart, coloring and activity sheets, bookmarks and a memory game.
  • a sweepstakes visitors can enter to win a year's supply of Dial Complete foaming hand wash.

Head on over and take advantage of all the site has to offer!

Want to win a case of Dial Complete right here? Just leave a comment on this post. Bonus entry if you blog about this contest with a link to this post and to the Campaign for Clean Hands. (please leave a separate comment here with your link so I can give you credit for your entry).

Be sure there is an email I can find where you can be reached or your entry cannot be counted. Deadline to enter is 11:59 EST, Wednesday, October 1.

peg42 said...

What a great prize. We have taught our kids to wash their hands as soon as they walk in the door after school. We see that it's helped keeping sickness away from our home. I love how your Pediatrician put it..."Would you rather puke, or wash your hands?" Got to remember this, just in case the kids get lazy. lol
Thanks so much for this giveaway. We'd really love to win. Thanks.

Sandy said...

I am a strict handwasher too, I will even holler when I hear the older ones and even hubs go to the bathroom- you touched it wash the hands- you don't want to get the whole house sickk with something

diesel51 said...

Hand washing is so important. I carry a hand cleaner gel so I can use it when I am out. Sometimes the restroom sink is filthy, no soap or towels. The blower is even dirty and doesn't work. I hate to ever let the kids touch the door handle at malls or restaurants. I try not to be a germ paranoid person, but an ounce of soap is needed.

tutugirl said...

Definitely want to stay healthy this winter and my family knows how important it is to wash their hands. This would be a great win.

traymona said...

With a 2 year old who's nickname is Pigpen, I could really, really use a case of handsoap. He loves dirt. He'll just lay down in the dirt and roll. When he stands up bits of dirt will be dropping of him.I have to fight him every time I sweep up the dirt on the floors. He wants to play in the pile of dirt that I have swept up.
