Special Post: FREE Hand-washing Timer

NOTE: I usually don't post more than twice per week, but given the time-sensitive nature of this post (while supplies last), I wanted to get the word out.

We all know how important hand washing is in protecting against the spread of germs and illness. I found out about this free hand-washing timer (see image below) that attaches to your faucet from a friend today. I ordered 3 and I encourage you to also check it out to see if it may benefit your family.

They have some printouts on their site to help you educate everyone in your household (especially the kids!) on the importance of hand-washing. The info on these tip sheets would be good to work into a lesson on hygiene, and you can take it even a step further by using this to teach/review basic bacteria and virus biology.

Enjoy your free product!


  1. I think that this would be great for my kids. They never really want to wash their hands, so this might be a way to make it fun. Thanks for posting about the hand washing timer. Great post.

  2. I couldn't agree with you more. hand washing timer are so important. I really think more people should have these around. I know I never scrub for long enough, I think I'll have to get one asap.
