With all this talk of the swine flu it almost has me paranoid when the boys get even the slightest sniffle. I must look like a total germaphobe at the grocery store when I am in race to wipe down the cart before the boys even touch it. You hate to feel like you are paranoid but with having one child that is prone to bad asthma and the other who had so many ear infections, I try to be as vigilant as I can to keep things as germ free as possible.
Kleenex has introduced their Anti Viral tissues. I think it is a really great concept from a Mom’s point of view, when their are snotty noses in the house, I feel like I am constantly wiping somebody’s nose and that in itself spreads plenty of germs.
About Kleenex Anti Viral
- The blue-dotted, moisture-activated layer indicates it’s a Kleenex® Anti-Viral* Tissue
- Kleenex® Anti-Viral* Tissues are available at leading grocery, drug, club and mass merchandising stores
- Tissues are fragrance free
- The middle layer of Kleenex® Anti-Viral* Tissues contains active ingredients that kill 99.9% of cold and flu viruses*
- They are extremely soft and gentle enough even for small children
Many people actually re-use nose tissues. Not only is this kinda gross, it doesn’t kill the virus. Kleenex® Anti-Viral* Tissues kill the bug in the tissue within 15 minutes.* So remember: the bug is out there all year long. So grab the one weapon that’s proven to kill 99.9% of cold and flu viruses* in the tissue.
Watch this fun webisode in Kleenex’s Battle Of The Bug
You can even join in the battle of the bug with Kleenex and receive great offers on Kleenex® Anti-Viral* Tissues. With the number of flu cases that are rising each day it can’t hurt to have a little defense up your sleeve rather than snot on it. I like the new idea of Kleenex Anti Viral, and with having young kids you know they are some of the biggest germ carriers. I remember when I worked in daycare for 9 years, the first 3 years I was sick weekly!
As part of Kleenex’s Battle Of The Bug, they would like to offer One lucky reader a chance to win a box of Kleenex Anti Viral tissues and a $50 visa card!
Here’s What You Gotta Do
Tell me what you do to help prevent the spread of germs in your house, sign up to battle the bug, and tell me why you would like to win!

**I was compensated for posting the following information and for hosting this giveaway by Kleenex**
Dominos pizza is partnering up with GreenGraffiti, a company that will go around New York City, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, adding “green graffiti” to the cities on behalf of Dominos. It’s definitely“green”, and in fact, it actually is good. GreenGraffiti is creating graffiti in those cities by power-washing their graffiti onto streets and sidewalks, essentially cleaning the streets. I think this is a really great idea and not only that Green Graffiti participates in a water harvesting campaign giving back to people in need of drinking water.
How Does Green Graffiti Work?
GreenGraffiti® is an environmentally friendly form of outdoor advertising with a clear message; clean is green. GreenGraffiti® is completely carbon neutral, is one of the first companies in the world to compensate for our water footprint and contributes in a unique way to a healthier environment. That is why we can say with a clear conscience: the more GreenGraffiti® the better.
With the help of a template and a high pressure water sprayer an advertising message is cleaned out of the dirt. The result is a high impact message and a cleaner street.
You can read more about Dominos and this great project here.
Here’s The Deal and How You Can Get Free Pizza!
If anyone in these participating cities can find the graffiti and take their picture in front of it, all they need to do is email that picture to Dominos and they get themselves a quick/easy gift card.
“The first 250 people to email email@example.com and submit a photo of them with a Green Graffiti® sidewalk Domino’s logo will receive a $15 Domino’s gift card, good for a Domino’s American Legends pizza.”
Do you want to be part of the free pizza action? Even if you don’t live in one of these cities or if you do, you are in luck here at DoubleBugs! We would like to offer one lucky reader a chance to win a $15 Gift Card for free pizza at your local Dominos.
Here’s What You Gotta Do!
All you have to do is tell me what your favorite pizza at Dominos is and something that you learned about Green Graffiti or what you like about their “green initiative” and leave me a comment here!

Did you know that July is National Ice Cream month??? I don’t know about you, but I love ice cream. Ice cream is a comfort food that I love most in the Summer time, and when you are having a blah day it is always nice to snuggle up to your favorite pint. Well, not exactly snuggle, but a pint of Ben & Jerry’s and a spoon in hand is sure to bring a smile to your face! When I head to the store, I always find myself staring into the ice cream case at all the different Ben and Jerry’s flavors and I can almost never pick out one flavor because something new always catches my eye.
National Ice Cream Month is celebrated by the US every July. This month was designated as national ice cream month by Ronald Reagan in 1984. He also appointed the third Sunday in July as National Ice Cream Day Reagan recognized the popularity of ice cream in the United States (90% of the nation’s population consumes ice cream) and stated that these two events should be observed with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” Unfortunately, many people do not even know that America even has a National Ice Cream Month.
Some of my most favorite Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavors include the ever popular Cherry Garcia, Karamel Sutra, and my newest favorite and one of their newest editions Mission to Marzipan (let me wipe the drool from my keyboard). Let’s face it you can’t just buy one pint and head home, you at lest have to get a few days worth or even a week’s worth so you don’t have to pout when you polish off a pint while watching a sappy love story, or you have had a stressful day, or just because you gotta have it. At least you know you always have more!
I don’t know how they do it but they manage to pack the right amount of stuff into that little pint, that make your taste buds do a little dance, and make your happy endorphins go crazy. I don’t know how they make the caramel in Karamel Sutra stay perfectly gooey in the middle but I do know that their ice cream is one of the best in my opinion!
Here at DoubleBugs, I decided that it would be fun to celebrate National Ice Cream Month and my love of Ben and Jerry’s. We (Ben and Jerry’s and I) came up with a fab giveaway to make your mouth water and keep your freezer stocked with Ben and Jerry’s!
We will be giving away one pint a day for the month of July. 3 Lucky Winners will win a 7 day supply of Ben and Jerry’s (one pint for every day of the week), and a Fourth Grand Prize winner will win (10 pints of Ben and Jerry’s and few extra goodies too!).
I know, I know, you are gleaming with excitement! But we are gonna make you do a little work for your ice cream. Don’t worry we won’t ask you to sell your soul but you might consider it, since it is Ben and Jerry’s HA!
So here is the scoop (get it? scoop?) Ok, I’ll quit with the cheesy jokes.

I have heard through the grapevine that Glidden Paint is giving away a free quart of paint! It’s only good for today 6/25/09 so hurry and get yours! You just pick your favorite color! I can think of a ton of things I can do with some extra paint. I have a few chairs that need touched up, some trim to paint, or I can even paint a few blocks on my wall for a cool look. Just a word of warning the page is loading very slowly, due to the amount of traffic. Who couldn’t use free paint? Hurry and go get yours now!
Do you suffer from WWAS or Window Washing Avoidance Syndrome? WWAS is the perpetual postponement of cleaning your outdoor windows. According to a recent study 80% of homeowners admit they have avoided cleaning their outdoor windows, and I know I fall right into that category. In fact, we have never cleaned them in the 6 years that we have been here! When it comes to window cleaning , it is probably last on the list.
We have a ton of windows on the back of our house, and well I just can’t reach them but they are in serious need! If you have WWAS, I have a terrific giveaway just for you! With Windex All In One, all you have to do with it is spray the window and the cleaning pad with the garden hose, use the handy long reach pole with the All-in-One cleaning pad, then rinse off the window with the hose. And the best part is you don’t have to dry it. You can watch a demo here .
If this is as easy as it says then I will be giddy with excitement to get out and clean the windows. Anything that will make my life easier and motivate me to get out and do the things you often overlook, then that is a huge plus!
Would you like to give Windex All-In-One a try? Doublebugs will be giving away three All-In-One Cleaning kits.
Here’s What You Gotta Do For Entry
- Leave me a comment on when the last time you cleaned your windows
