Crayola Launched Cute, Colorful Hand Sanitizer for Kids


A few months ago, it felt nearly impossible to get a bottle of hand sanitizer. But now, the alcohol-based germ killer is readily available on shelves again and still just as important. If you’ve been looking for a way to make your kiddos use theirs, Crayola’s crayon hand sanitizer may be the answer.

The classic brand of crayons has launched four different hand sanitizers that meet CDC guidelines for kids, and yes, they come in colors. The new sanitizers are made with 75% ethyl alcohol and a claim to kill 99.9% of germs. Just like with regular sanitizer, it’s a gel-based formula that requires no water and dries quickly without leaving behind a sticky residue.

For parents, the new Crayola sanitizer means an easy way for kids to clean their hands, and for kids, it’s basically slime thanks to the colors. The cleanser comes in blue, green. yellow, and red hues—and it’s not just the packaging that’s colored. The sanitizer itself has also been tinted to match its crayon-themed container. Thanks to its color, kids can see when it has been applied over the entire hand and rubbed in.

If you want to grab some for your child, the sanitizers are available on Amazon in a pack of four or either at $14.99 and $24.99, respectively.
