Wet Ones® Wipes Helps Keep Classrooms Stocked, Hands Clean

SHELTON, Conn., Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyone could use a helping hand from time to time – preferably one that's 99.99 percent germ free. That's why the Wet Ones ® brand – the hand wipes division of Energizer Personal Care, LLC –  is thrilled to support the newly launched – a free service dedicated to helping keep America's classrooms fully stocked with supplies so that teachers don't have to break the bank come back-to-school season.

According to the National School Supply and Equipment Association, each year teachers spend an average of $462 out of their own pockets to keep their classrooms stocked with important supplies and learning tools. With the help of – a site developed by School Family Media Inc. that offers the largest database available of current teacher wish lists and school supply lists – parents can help to relieve teacher's burdens by pitching in and providing the things America's classrooms really need: from Wet Ones ® Antibacterial Hand Wipes to paper towels, pencils and glue sticks.

Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes are a twice as handy solution for kids to quickly wipe away messes and kill 99.99 percent of germs on hands when soap and water aren't available. Available in a 40 count canister, 24 count box of individually wrapped singles and 15 count travel pack, Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes are convenient to pack in the backpack, lunchbox and stock in the classroom.
