The What to Expect Guide to a Healthy Home Growth Chart

I've realized that having different children of all different ages can become a cleaning and sanitizing nightmare if I let that out of hand.

My 4 year old needs constant hand washing because she's outside touching everything - and then eating her lunch with her fingers.

My 2 year old is potty training, so teaching her proper bathroom cleanliness is a number one (and two) priority.

Additionally, in just a couple short months I'll be adding a newborn into my life and my home. Bottles will need to be washed, rattles will need to be cleaned, and every one who wants to hold the baby will have to be dunked in sanitizer.

Keeping up on the cleaning is not only important to the image of the house, but to the health of my family.

Sometimes it's seems the creating a healthy, clean home is an impossible task. While it might feel overwhelming, it doesn't have to be. The folk at Clorox and What to Expect When Expecting (remember that book?) have developed a nifty tool to helping parents keep their house clean for all stages of childhood.

The What to Expect Guide to a Healthy Home is a free down-loadable growth chart of to all things "clean".

Since downloading it myself, I've found some really useful tips that I've started to implement in my home. For instance, throwing the stuffed animals in the washer/dryer after a play date with friends. It's a no-brainer to wipe down the plastic toys, but the plush animals sometimes get left out of the deep clean!

With cold/flu season just around the corner, I highly suggest giving this free online tool a read - it just might keep the sickies away!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Clorox and the What to Expect Guide and received a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
