Germs are everywhere. Bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites can produce everything from a sore throat to pneumonia to athlete’s foot.

Germs can affect us, our kids, and anyone who does not take care of their personal hygiene properly. So what can we do about the presence of germs? Glitterbug thinks they might have a solution. Their product, the ‘Glitterbug Potion’ can not only help you see germs, but also help you to avoid them.

According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, “Handwashing is the single most important means for preventing the spread of infections.” Unfortunately, washing your hands properly can be a task, as many people do not actually know how to clean their hands most effectively.

This is where Glitterbug comes in. The Glitterbug Potion is a hand lotion that includes a UV fluorescent glow. Shining a UV lamp over your hands will make the UV fluorescent powders in the Glitterbug Potion visible, and will reveal all the places that germs love to lurk on your hands.

It’s impossible to see microorganisms without a microscope, but with the Glitterbug Potion, you’ll be able to see the germs on your hands and wash them all off without difficulty. Even the kids will love Glitterbug, and will encourage them to wash more with the special lotion making hand hygiene interesting, fun, and memorable.

Glitterbug products provide a valuable tool for teaching proper hand-hygiene techniques. To learn more and to purchase your Glitterbug Potion, visit
