Between carpooling to practice and carrying around gym bags, your car can begin to smell like a locker room! Get rid of odors and bacteria by refreshing your car with Clorox® Disinfecting Mist. Not only does it disinfect hard surfaces, but it sanitizes and deodorizes soft surfaces when used as directed as well!

Your kids need all of their energy to go out there and play their hardest. Stocking up on healthy snacks enriched with almonds, berries, protein, and more can help them refuel before the game and score big!

Create a Laundry Rotation

There’s nothing worse than last-minute laundry — especially when your kid’s soccer uniform is full of grass and dirt stains. Creating a laundry rotation based on their game schedule will prevent any hiccups and last-minute loads. Whether you wash during the weekends or take care of the laundry in the evenings when everyone’s winding down, having a schedule will ensure your kid is ready to play! Pro tip? Use Clorox® Laundry Sanitizer to remove tough odors from smelly towels to your kids’ stinky sports uniforms.

Wipe Down Equipment After Use

Use Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes to kill 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria when used as directed on hard, nonporous surfaces like helmets, balls, and rackets. (Disclaimer: Read cleaning instructions on different equipment). 

Remember To Have Fun
