Bill Nye the Science guy teamed up with Wet Ones Antibacterial Hand Wipes to create some fun science experiments to teach kids the importance of clean hands. As a mom to three kids, I understand the importance of keeping germs from spreading, but often have trouble relaying that message to my kids in a way that they understand. Luckily, I received a Wet Ones Healthy Hand Zone experiment kit to get hands on with germs and show my son just how easy it easy to spread and kill germs.

A week ago we started our first experiment that compared germ growth on bread in three different ways. Watch in as we share our results plus conduct another fun experiment that showed my son just how easy it is the spread germs to his family and friends. It’s one lesson I don’t think he’ll forget.

As you just saw, germs are so easily spread but can be easily killed by taking the time to either 1) wash your hands thoroughly or 2) use Wet Ones Antibacterial Wipes to kill off 99.99% of germs. Personally, I find the wipes really convenient for my kids to use especially when we’re on the go. The individual Wet Ones packets are perfect for keeping the car, my purse, my son’s backpack. The larger Wet Ones wipe tubs are great for keeping in each room of the house.

    oh my goodness.. I used to watch Bill Nye everyday after school.
    I carry sanitizer everywhere, may have to get some of these for my car!
    We actually have wet ones for our students!

    My oldest son who is now in the Army, loved Bill Nye! I think he learned more science from him than he did in school! Because he thought Bill was cool.

    Bill Nye is fun to watch. I have always liked Science. I would have loved it if I had had a teacher like Bill. Thanks for sharing this review.

    Wow, what a cool experiment! And a great visual aid for kids who believe that parents wanting them to wash their hands often are really conspiring against them instead of trying to help them. ;-) Thanks for taking the time to make the video, I really enjoyed it. :)

    I love Bill Nye – heck, even my 21 year old son loves watching him! Thanks for sharing this, I bookmarked it to show my son when he comes home next week. Living in the dorm, he’s exposed to germs galore so this will be good info for him to have.
