Make Handwashing Fun for Kids
TORONTO, ON, April 27, 2007 — Clean Freak Patrol Ltd. revealed two new products in the children’s Health & Beauty category at the T.O Kids’ Show at the Toronto Congress Centre (www.tokidsshow.com). The Clean Freak Patrol hand sanitizer gel and soap countertop pumps come in a specially designed, bright red, car shaped holders. By appealing to children and young people we hope to make hand washing fun for kids and help remind them about the importance of proper hand hygiene.
The 500ml, non-alcohol, moisturizing hand sanitizer gel countertop pump is great for places where soap and water are unavailable; places like classrooms, cafeterias, school lockers, cars, and computer desks. Our unique no alcohol formula is safe for children’s gentle skin, contains moisturizing Aloe Vera, fights germs, smells great, and requires no water! With Clean Freak Patrol, kids can fight germs whenever they want and wherever they may be.
The 500ml, refillable truck shaped hand pump dispensers will be available in the coming weeks, exclusively at Shopper’s Drug Mart (www.shoppersdrugmart.ca). Consumers are invited to ask for it by name – ‘Clean Freak Patrol’.
Kids can check out the Clean Freak Patrol at our audio rich website www.CleanFreakPatrol.com. “We have created an online headquarters where young people and their parents can visit for child friendly information about health and the spread of germs and bacteria. Games, talking books, cartoons, colouring books, our MP3 single and music video, educational material, and our ‘Germ Elimination Contest’, are currently available, with more being added all the time!” says Michael Morris, President of Clean Freak Patrol.
