Getting Ready for a New School Year

I can't believe how quickly summer holidays are passing by, soon it will be time for us to start our back to school routines. Here are a few items that will come in handy for families during the school year.
me to we back to school
Education opens a world of possibilities, and purchasing ME to WE products will make a difference to our children as well as empower many lives in developing countries. These everyday school products will remind our children to think of others and be empathetic. ME to WE products can be purchased online at ME to WE or at Staples Canada.

Downy Wrinkle Releaser
The Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is helpful all through the year. We especially found it helpful when travelling during our road trips. The formula helps reduce wrinkles in our clothes, remove static, and eliminates odour in our favourite top, pants, or dress clothes quickly and easily.

It is simple to use just spray, tug, smooth and hang. Within minutes our clothes will be refreshed and ready for what the day throws at us. Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus in original Light Fresh scent, is ideal for all types of clothes. It relaxes the fabric by coating fabric fibres with a thin silicone layer, which reduces wrinkles. This product can be used on tablecloths, cloth napkins, sheets, curtains, and more. In addition, it can be used as an odour eliminator, a fabric refresher and a static remover. 

500ml container available at Loblaws and and banner stores across Canada is approximately $5.99. Downy Wrinkle Release Plus travel size 90ml container available at Walmart is $2.47 fits easily into a suitcase or carry-on, gym bag or glove compartment, making our garments ready-to-wear, wherever we go. We like that the Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus, reduces wrinkles and helps keep clothes looking neat without the hassle of ironing.

Fjallraven Canada Kånken bags
A good bag pack without doubt is essential, so children can take their belongings back and forth. At the end of the 1970s, reports started emerging of increasing numbers of children suffering from back pain as a result of the shoulder bags that were the fashion at the time. In order to help prevent back problems, Fjällräven's Åke Nordin created a lightweight, basic, durable backpack with plenty of room for all the essentials for a day at school. The Kånken collection launched in 1978 in collaboration with the Swedish Guide and Scout Association.

For over 35 years they have been keeping up the same quality, and adding different colours and features such as laptop case to their products. One of our favourite from this collection is the Kånken No. 2 Laptop 15" backpack in G-1000 Heavy Duty. This bag has a padded computer compartment to hold a 15" laptop, leather handles and details. It is a practical everyday backpack with excellent longevity that has a padded seat pad and comfortable padded shoulder straps.

Fjallraven Canada has a variety of different size bags such as kids bags for small children, mini, maxi, and more - to suit everyone's need.
back to school licesquad
When children go back to school, another thing we must do is a routine check of their head for lice. Lice can happen to anyone at any time regardless of hair type, hair colour, gender or household income. Head lice spreads by direct head-to-head contact with someone who has a case. Lice spreads easily at schools when young children have close contact with one another either with desks set side-by-side or during normal play and school activities. Though head lice do not hop, jump, or fly, they do crawl very quickly. Parents should be alert to the common sign of head lice, which is scratching the head and when children complain their head is itchy.

Since keeping children from everyday social activities is not an option suggests we check hair close to the scalp, crown of the head, around the ear and nape of the neck regularly in direct sunlight or under a good lighting. Viable eggs will be brownish in colour and cannot be flicked off the hair, rather it needs to removed between the fingernails, with tweezers, or with a good nit comb.

LiceSquad says, a good screening method is by lathering the hair with conditioner and thoroughly combing the hair out with the Lice Super Hero Comb, then wiping the comb on a white paper towel after a few passes. Inspect the paper towel looking for brownish coloured eggs or actual bugs. 

Hope these items from buying ME to WE products that change lives to buying ergonomic bags from Fjallraven Canada to refreshing clothes with Downy Wrinkle Releaser, and following LiceSquad's tips to care for your hair will come in handy for your family during the school year.
