Make Life Special

We are excited to announce that we are a part of Make Life Special’s Holiday Gift Guide! They’ve put together a list of 13 great stocking stuffers that won’t break the bank and our line of SpritzBlitz products was included in that. Here’s what they had to say about SpritzBlitz:

Spritz  Sprays

“Since I’ve discovered Spritz Blitz, I have found myself worrying less and being prepared more.  My son dropped a bottle at the grocery store, the mouth piece touched the floor, and I had a Spritz Blitz in my purse to easily clean it without a trip to the bathroom.”

Take a look at the rest of the stocking stuffer ideas here: http://makelifespecial.com/13-stocking-stuffers/

BinkySpritz in Peru

We were recently fortunate enough to take a trip down to Peru with Generations Humanitarian to visit children at the Sunflower Home in Machu Picchu and help dig 1/3 of the new sewer line for the home. This sewer line will help the children at the home to have more access to fresh, clean water.

We loved visiting with the children! They were so happy and hardworking. They worked so hard to help build the sewer line and enjoyed a delicious piece of chocolate after.

We were able to attend a New Year’s celebration with the children while we were there. I can’t think of a better way to spend my New Year’s than helping these wonderful kids!

The children in this home are either orphans or come from families that can’t afford to feed them. They also sponsor programs for new mothers to give them the things they need to help care for their babies. We brought down some infant care kits and helped pass those out to the new mothers there.

Why BinkySpritz?


The Truth About the “Five-Second Rule”

 

Every mom has been there. You’re enjoying a nice day at the park or doing a little shopping and your little one drops their favorite pacifier on the ground. What do you do?  Wipe it off with sanitizing wipes that contain alcohol? Dust it off and trust in the “five-second rule?” Stick it in your own mouth to get rid of the dirt and germs?

I think we all know that the five-second rule is less than sound, but a recent study at Clemson University proved it. They found that bacteria and germs have the ability to survive and be transferred to other things for long periods of time. Not only that, but they are transferred almost immediately on contact.

If you’re using your own mouth to clean a pacifier, you could be adding even more damage by transferring germs that could cause cavities or even illnesses that could seriously harm your baby.

Drue Didier, mother of five, was confronted with similar evidence while raising her own children.  She found several options to clean her children’s pacifiers and toys, but didn’t feel comfortable using any of them on a regular basis. They all left an unappealing taste, had added sugar, or were made of harsh ingredients. Not finding an alternative that she trusted, the initial idea behind BinkySpritz was launched.

Introduced in 2011, BinkySpritz is an all-natural, non-toxic cleaning spray that is made specifically with infants and children in mind. It has no sugar or dyes added, but still has a naturally sweet taste that children enjoy.

Some mothers may be thinking, “how can an all-natural product effectively clean germs?” As it turns out, nature had the answer all along. BinkySpritz contains a unique blend of natural ingredients including orange oil and lemon juice. These ingredients work together to create an acidic environment, which kills germs and prevents future germ growth.

Why YogaSpritz?


The Dirty Secret Behind Yoga Mats

All-natural YogaSpritz helps you stay clean and find your zen

 

Have you ever wondered what could be lurking in your yoga mat? Or worse yet, the studio mats? It turns out that while you’re doing sun salutations, you could also be picking up harmful germs and bacteria that could make you sick. Use a yoga mat cleaning spray like YogaSpritz to get rid of germs and make “clean” your mantra.

YogaSpritz is an all-natural, non-toxic cleaning spray that comes in a convenient 2-ounce bottle that can easily be carried in any workout bag or purse. This product uses the cleaning power of lemon juice and orange oil to kill germs and prevent them from growing in the future. Lemon juice and orange oil are both k known to prohibit or clean microbial growth, even better than alkaline products. Simply spray mat all over and allow a minute for the mixture to get rid of germs. Then, wipe the mat with a dry cloth or paper towel thoroughly until completely dry.

Bacteria can survive for several hours and even several days on inanimate surface and viruses can actually linger for weeks. Add to that the warm and often humid atmosphere that is present in most yoga studios and you have a recipe for the perfect germ & bacteria breeding ground.

Some common bacteria that can be found on yoga mats can cause acne and other skin conditions, strep infections and meningitis. Not surprisingly, there are also fungi such as athlete’s foot, ringworm and jock itch.

To help improve the sanitation at your local studio, here are a few things you can do:

  • Ask your studio to clean yoga mats at least once a week
  • Slip off your shoes before entering the studio
  • Wash your hands before and after class
  • Clean your mat before and after class

Thirty percent of sinks, flush handles and faucet handles tested positively for E. coli, as well as 20 percent of toilet seats.

It’s not only airplanes that can be a trap for germs and bacteria.

Why SportsSpritz?


All-natural cleaning spray helps prevent germ transmission at gyms

SportsSpritz help you stay healthy and active

 

Salt Lake City, UT – E.Coli, Klebsiella & Staphylococcus aureus. What do these three have in common? These are all germs that can be found in your gym. To prevent contracting the illnesses these germs bring, use SportsSpritz, an on-the-go cleaning spray to wash the machines and dumbbells before and after you use them.

SportsSpritz is an all-natural, non-toxic cleaning spray that comes in a convenient 2-ounce bottle. This product uses the natural cleaning power of lemon juice and orange oil to kill germs and bacteria. Lemon juice and orange oil are both known to prohibit or clean microbial growth, even better than alkaline products.

Slip this little bottle in your gym bag and you’ll never have to worry about getting sick from the gym again.

The conditions at gyms are prefect for spreading and growing germs.Think about the moist showers and sauna, the floors and benches and the communal drinking fountain. Add to that sweat and exposed skin and you have a recipe for spreading germs.

Besides cleaning your hands, the machine you’re using and the water fountain before and after use, there are some other precautions you can take to make sure that you don’t get sick.

  • Wear flip flops in the locker room and showers
  • Sit on a clean towel in the locker room and not directly on the bench
  • Clean the mat before you use it or better yet, bring your own
  • Don’t touch your face. This can transmit germs from your hands to your eyes, nose and mouth.

Why HandSpritz?


Use all-natural hand sanitizing spray to fight the flu

HandSpritz, helps consumers stay healthy “on-the-go”

Salt Lake City, UT – According to recent data, this flu season is the worst we’ve had in six years. Since October 1, 2012, almost 2300 people have been hospitalized with the flu and 18 children have died.  The worst news is that the flu season isn’t over yet. Officials say that the best way to avoid transmission is to wash your hands regularly with a product such as HandSpritz, an all-natural hand sanitizer spray.

HandSpritz uses the natural power of lemon juice and orange oil to kill the germs that come with everyday life.  Lemon juice and orange oil are both known to prohibit or clean microbial growth, even better than alkaline products. Simply spray HandSpritz on your hands and rub together until dry.

Using a hand sanitizer can help keep you safe and healthy while on-the-go. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that people infected with the flu virus can spread it to others up to about six feet away. The flu virus is spread by the droplets made when people cough, sneeze or talk. It can also be spread by touching an infected surface and then touching your mouth or nose.

You may not even know if you’ve been around someone who is infected. Most adults may be able to infect others beginning one day before symptoms develop and up to five to seven days after becoming sick.

Besides washing your hands and keeping HandSpritz with you, there are other things you can do to fight the flu.

  • Sleep 8 to 10 hours a night
  • Get your flu shot
  • Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Work out regularly

HandSpritz is available in a convenient 2-ounce spray bottle that can easily be tucked into a backpack, purse, briefcase or diaper bag for ready use.  For more information about HandSpritz and the SpritzBlitz family of “green” cleaning products, go to www.spritzblitz.com.

Why FruitSpritz?


All-natural fruit cleaning spray helps prevent food-borne illnesses 

FruitSpritz helps consumers clean fruit “on-the-go”

 

Salt Lake City, UT – The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 1 in 6 Americans get a food-borne illness each year. Nearly half of those illnesses were linked to contaminated produce. Experts recommend scrubbing all produce under running water before eating to help reduce the risk of contamination. But that’s not practical when you’re out and about. Thanks to an innovative new product called FruitSpritz, you can now clean and eat fresh fruit on-the-go, minimizing the risk of food-borne illness.

 

FruitSpritz is an all-natural fruit cleaning spray. It uses the natural power of lemon juice and orange oil to get rid of germs and bacteria that can be picked up during the growing, packing and shipping process. Lemon juice and orange oil are both known to prohibit or clean microbial growth, even better than alkaline products. Simply spray FruitSpritz on the fresh fruit, ensuring that the entire surface is wet, and wipe off with a clean paper towel or napkin.

Cleaning fruit before consumption can remove up to 98 percent of the germs and bacteria that can cause the flu-like symptoms of food poisoning.  This includes fruit with a peel or rind. Bacteria can travel from the outside to the inside of your fruit via your hands or the knife used to slice it. Common food-borne bacteria are Salmonella, Listeria and E-coli.

There are other things you can do to prevent food-borne illnesses.

  • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds in warm, soapy water.
  • Refrigerate produce until you are ready to eat it.
  • Choose unblemished, ripe fruits and vegetables when you shop.
  • Clean the entire fruit or vegetable, even the parts you don’t eat.

FruitSpritz is available in a convenient 2-ounce spray bottle that can easily be tucked into a backpack, purse, briefcase, or diaper bag for ready use.
