International Product Solutions, Creator of the Soap Soundz Brand, Launches "Hygiene Heroes" Line to Help Tackle Kids' Dirty Hands

Soap Soundz "Hygiene Heroes" Take on Dirty Hands

GLOUCESTER, MA--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) -   As the new school year gets underway, 76 million students around the country will be heading back into the classroom. It is also a time when students spread germs, and parents battle to get them to properly wash their hands. An innovative liquid hand soap and hand sanitizer is taking on those hand-washing battles -- "Hygiene Heroes" style.

"Hand hygiene is a big issue with children, because we know that proper hand washing can help reduce incidences of common illnesses like cold and flu," explains Eric McNiff, co-founder of International Product Solutions, maker of the Soap Soundz line of hand soaps (

Soap Soundz has a new "Hygiene Heroes" line, aimed at teaching children to wash and sanitize their hands. With each squirt, the bottle plays music and provides a hand washing message for the length of time that hands should be washed, which is around 20 seconds, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The hand soaps come in bright colors, fruity scents, and fun "hero" designs such as "Princess Sanipure," and "Captain Cleanhands."

While teaching children proper hand washing can be a challenge, products like Soap Soundz are designed to help make the process easier and to help motivate kids to wash more often and effectively.

"What we have done is to make hand washing fun for kids, which makes a big difference in getting them to do it regularly," adds McNiff. "Even if they don't always understand the importance of hand washing, they will find it fun, and parents can take comfort from knowing that they are eliminating more germs."

In addition to the Soap Soundz "Hygiene Heroes" hand soaps and sanitizers, there are other specialty lines available, including the "Season's Harmony" line, which features special designs for various holidays, including Christmas and Halloween. The hand soaps are available at national retailers such as Kmart, Ace Hardware, Fred Meyer and Meijer.
