Keeping a business clean and odor-free will leave a great impression on current and future customers, which can lead to higher enrollment, financial viability, and much more! Parents want to see their children learning and socializing in a safe, clean, and well-maintained environment. Sharing is caring, but not when it comes to germs. Having the right products can help stop the spread of germs and make cleaning everyday spills and accidents manageable. 

Disinfecting your childcare facility is essential and as a childcare professional, you know that is a top priority. What you may not know are the benefits of choosing Neutron’s Power Tabs EZ Bleach Disinfectant Tablets vs. common household bleach or other disinfectants. Bleach is a staple in a childcare facility because it disinfects quickly and is cost-effective. Some downfalls to using traditional bleach are that it comes in heavy containers, needs to be stored away from children, it has a backsplash potential when making or using, and the bleach mixture starts losing efficacy immediately after being diluted. Neutron’s Power Tabs are the safer alternative to traditional bleach because they are less corrosive on metal, less damaging on skin and surfaces, and have a mess-free preparation process! Simply dilute in a sprayer bottle and your new bleach solution is effective for up to 3 days! No more wasting time mixing several bleach solutions every day. Power tabs are time-efficient so you can spend more time doing what you love, caring for children. 

This disinfecting product can help prevent the spread of germs and keep classrooms, group play areas, and your entire facility disinfected. Power Tabs can be used to disinfect hard non-porous surfaces such as toys, play areas, food prep areas, commonly touched surfaces, etc. This disinfectant solution can also be used as a food contact surface sanitizer. These tabs are EPA’s List N for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVD-19*, C.diff, Hepatitis A, B, or C, Salmonella, E-coli and more. The dwell times for Salmonella and Hepatitis A are 1 minute while the dwell time for C.diff is 4 minutes. While C.diff isn’t normally found in daycares, this claim demonstrates how powerful and effective this disinfectant is. See the product label for the full list of viruses and dilution ratios.

Potty training is a task that many child care staff members help to teach and reinforce every day. It is a messy ordeal that is part of a normal day in your world because young children will always have accidents. Have you ever wondered why you clean your restroom floors every day with a floor cleaner but they still smell? The cause of the unpleasant odors and stains is trapped uric acid in the floor, such as in grout and tile. Neutron’s D-Molish Enzymatic Digester & Deodorizer is an enzymatic cleaner that digests organic matter like urine, food, vomit, blood, and more. This cleaner neutralizes odors immediately and keeps working to eliminate the source of the odor. When we asked childcare centers to test this product there were overwhelming positive reviews on the effectiveness of eliminating those foul restroom odors. We know accidents happen outside of the bathroom as well. Use D-Molish on carpets to get out stains or odors left from accidents or spills. To use, simply saturate the area with the product, then mist it with warm water to activate the enzymes.

At the end of a full day of arts and crafts, meals, and other activities surfaces are left sticky, and gross, and may require a lot of elbow grease to clean. Neutron’s Eco Power All-Purpose Cleaner is the perfect product to clean dirty surfaces and is green-certified. A top comment from our research was that cleaning a surface once may not remove all the dirt and grime. This powerful cleaner contains a degreaser which is perfect for getting up any sticky messes, removing dirt, and more! Neutron’s Eco Power All-Purpose Cleaner is a green product that is EPA Safer Choice certified. This certification indicates that the products perform as well as comparable national brands and the ingredients have been verified as being safer for human health and the environment. Your staff can feel good knowing this is a heavy-duty cleaner while being safer to use around children and your staff while also leaving behind a pleasant citrus scent.

There are plenty of unpleasant odors that accumulate inside a daycare facility. Infant rooms can have a terrible lingering odor from constantly changing diapers. Using household odor control products simply masks the smell without eliminating odors. Those unpleasant odors can linger even after emptying trash cans or diaper pails. Neutron’s NI-712 Clinging Deodorizing Gel is great for discreetly controlling odors. This deodorizing gel doesn’t mask malodors, it neutralizes them while leaving behind a clean citrus scent. Spray this on the inside of diaper pails, trash cans, or other hard surfaces from which you wish to control odors. The clinging gel allows the product to be applied on horizontal, vertical, and irregularly shaped surfaces. The gel slowly dissipates and completely disappears, leaving no stain or residue behind.

From spilled juice to bodily fluids such as vomit, messes can be overwhelming and unpleasant to clean up. Neutron’s Abracadabra turns liquid messes into manageable gel. Simply sprinkle the powder onto the liquid spill and watch it quickly change to a gel! The gel can then be swept or wiped up, leaving behind an apple scent. Abracadabra is a magical product that helps make cleaning up messes safer and more convenient. This product can be used in collaboration with D-Molish to help eliminate stains and odors. Simply use the Abracadabra to remove the mess, and follow up with D-Molish to eliminate any stains or odors left behind.

Something you may not even realize because it’s part of your daily routine is that teaching children how to properly wash their hands is often the responsibility of the childcare provider. Let’s make it an easy lesson to teach by using a soap that children are sure to love while cleaning their hands. Neutron’s Clean Skin Mango Foaming Hand Soap is the perfect tool for that. This tabletop soap will help control the product dispensed while the kids actively learn the steps of washing hands. Kids will love the foaming soap with the mango scent. It will make handwashing a fun time!
