What are disinfectants for?
Disinfectants are not toys!
When parents aren't paying attention for a moment, the little bottle can be snatched. It is therefore very important that the bottles are stored in such a way that children cannot get to them: In the original bottle, for example, in a locked pharmacy cupboard or very high up where children cannot reach it.
Why don't you and your parents look at where you keep your disinfectants? If they are not already in the right place, think about where you can best put them. It's important to know where it is when you need it, and it's equally important that only your parents can reach it.
It is important to use disinfectants responsibly
In times of the coronavirus pandemic, it is more important than ever to follow hygiene rules. You have probably noticed the extra soap and disinfectant dispensers at school. Your teacher can help you use them. If you have any questions or need support, please contact them.
Drank disinfectant: Oh dear, what now?
And this is the right way to do it
- If you notice that school children are misusing disinfectants among themselves, report it immediately.
- If there are situations where you should disinfect your hands, it is best to ask your teacher about the use of disinfectants. Here we also have our information material on hand washing and hand disinfection in schools.
Afterwards, make sure you don't grab your face with your wet hands. Otherwise, the skin and eyes can start to burn. And of course, don't put your fingers in your mouth afterwards.
