When you think of the holiday season, you probably think of celebrations, family traditions, and food (just me?). If you have kids, you probably also think of germs, colds and how likely any member of your family is to bring home a new virus to share. Add in the suddenly cold temperatures, and I know that despite our best efforts to wash hands frequently, get enough sleep and take our vitamins, it’s just the time of year for someone to have a runny or stuffed up nose!
One of the hardest things to teach kids for some reason is how to properly blow their noses, and one of the grossest things to see is a kid with a runny nose. How it doesn’t bother them is beyond my comprehension! We’ve been fans of Boogie Wipes for years so when they reached out and offered samples, I didn’t think twice. We almost always have one of their giant tubs in the house, but now I have some handy 30 count packs that I can easily keep in my purse or the car. Why are they considered a necessity in our house? Because they are made with saline, so they are soft on sore noses and help to loosen any crusties. They don’t hurt when kids use them, so they’re more likely to ask to blow their nose. The Great Grape scent is definitely both of my daughters’ favourite, but they also come in Fresh Scent and Simply Unscented.
While Boogie Wipes may not be the most exciting thing you buy this holiday season, I can guarantee they’ll be one of the most useful! They also make good face or hand wipes in a pinch. Perhaps Santa will leave some in your children’s stockings this year?
