Frequently Purchased Together
Many of us remember adults telling us to wash our hand frequently when we were kids, even when our hands didn’t look dirty. We may have thought they were being overly cautious, but it’s also possible that Mom knew what she was talking about.
Glitter Bug Lotion is sure to resolve any doubt you may have had about the necessity of washing your hands. Squirt a little of the lotion on your hands before washing them. After washing, break out a UV light to reveal all the “germs” you missed.

Glitter Bug Lotion – UV Hand Washing Training Kit
This germ-simulating lotion reacts under a black light to show you where the Glitter Bug Lotion didn’t get washed off. You won’t believe your eyes when you see all the areas that glow on your hands.
Rub one pump of Glitter Bug lotion into your hands to simulate what it would be like to have germs on your skin.
Look at your hands under black light. Can you see the simulated germ glow?
Using soap and water, wash and then dry your hands like you normally would.
Use a black light to check your hands and see if any germs remain on your skin and fingernails. Any areas that glow under the black light will reveal any weak spots in your hand washing technique.
Improve your technique. Do you need to wash for a longer period of time? Do you need to use more soap? Do you need to scrub your hands in a different way? What variable(s) could you change to clean the areas that the black light revealed?
Repeat steps 1-4, but try changing one variable at a time. Measure and write down your results. Repeat these steps until you are unable to see any spots under the black light.
What Does It Teach?
Hand-washing is essential for reducing the spread of infectious diseases. Since most kids can’t see these harmful pathogens, they don’t always understand the need to wash their hands after certain activities. Using Glitter Bug Lotion will allow them to see what’s going on and help them to understand the importance of keeping their hands clean.
