Achoo! Now, When Kids Cough and Sneeze Into Their Arms It's Not So Gross

New Kids Product Kills 99.9% of Cold & Flu Germs On Contact

PORT WASHINGTON, NY--(Marketwired - March 23, 2016) - We've all seen it: A runny nose swiped across a just-washed sleeve. A gloppy sneeze into the arm of a brand new sweater. Now there's The Sneeve™, a soft, stretchy, absorbent little sleeve that kids wear over their arms, shirts, sweaters, sweatshirts or pajamas to catch the yucky stuff and help stop it from spreading.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends coughing and sneezing into the upper sleeve to help stop germs from spreading. Given that kids in the U.S. average about 10 colds a year, that's a lot of coughing and sneezing into a whole lot of sleeves.

Each disposable Sneeve will last most kids for a full day, absorbing phlegm and mucus (even the words are gross) and protecting clothing from becoming a germy landing pad. An anti‐microbial application kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria on contact.

The bright blue Sneeve fits comfortably on most kids 3 to 8 and reminds them to cough and sneeze into their arms. It resembles the compression sleeves that athletes use, and shows kids how they can have power over germs. The anti‐microbial application, used in hospitals, is made from citric acid and silver. It's safe for kids but merciless on viruses and bacteria.

The Sneeve, made entirely in the U.S., is available now at, and will be available at chain drug stores and other retailers early next year. Price online is $9.99 for a box of 7, with free two-day shipping with the purchase of two boxes or more.
