Dear Carex...

Dear Carex,

I have a 9 year old son. I have spent years trying to get him to wash his hands properly. As soon as he was old enough to use the bathroom on his own and realise that nobody was there telling him to use hand wash, he'd constantly skip the soap and I'm forever sending him back into the bathroom when I've caught him out. Maybe it's laziness. Maybe it's a boy thing. Whatever it is, I was getting tired of repeating myself and sending him back to wash his hands properly every time he left the bathroom.


Until.. you AMAZING people you, introduced your new 'family favourites' range - of hand wash that smell of sweets. SWEETS!! Bradley is amazed. Soap that smells of sweets?! We picked up the Cola Bottles and Strawberry Laces bottles and he couldn't wait to get home and try them out. Now I can't get him out of the bathroom! He is now leaving the bathroom smelling of candy, and with clean hands. Every time. 
He now enjoys to grace my partner and I with the 'sniff test' when he leaves the bathroom. Lovely. But I'm now happy knowing that he has clean hands, that smell lovely, and are free of bacteria. And let's be honest, I'm loving smelling of cola bottles too! ;) We're already onto the next bottle, and I've since learned that there is also a Chocolate Orange one available too! Mmm!

Bradley says, 'I love them, I never used to wash my hands properly, now I'm always washing them with soap. I keep smelling my hands after. I love the smell, my favourite is cola!'

Thank you Carex, you little beauties!! Please please please continue to make these fantastic hand washes. My sons hand hygiene depends on it!! ;)

Many thanks, an extremely grateful Mummy..

Carex Family Favourites is currently available in supermarkets at approx £1.80.
