Remember a while back I posted about making the Monster Spray from Prudent Baby?? Well, it gets rid of our monsters like nothing else! There are those nights where we have to spray down the room. And there’s been at least one night that Daddy ran around the outside of the house spraying a ‘No Monster Barrier’ around the house while chanting ‘NO MONSTERS, NO MONSTERS, NO MONSTERS’! Who knows what the neighbors thought about that, but who cares, our little guy was able to sleep peacefully!
So then when the medicine comes out for the boo boos and all I get are screams, I had an idea… Genuine Germ Drops!
I had gotten a set of mini bottles, a spray bottle and a push top drop bottle. And that’s where the Genuine Germ Drops were inspired! OK, here’s the secret, if you haven’t already figured it out… The germ drops are really just a bottle filled with hydrogen peroxide (or your favorite boo boo medication, it doesn’t have to be hydrogen peroxide. This may not be the #1 doctor recommended solution but you could apply this label to whatever you use – always ask your pediatrician for the right medication for the job!) and a fancy label. SHHHHHH!
Do you have kids? A boy or a girl? And do you have boo boos??? We seem to get quite a few around here. Luckily no major ones, yet…
And I have to admit something to you. It’s kinda a weird habit… Ok, here it goes… Deep breath… OK…. I absolutely LOVE using hydrogen peroxide on scraps and cuts and watching it bubble getting out all the dirty little germs. I don’t want there to be germs, but I love the bubbles when they are there!!!
So of course, I am trying to imprint this love affair with bubbling hydrogen peroxide with my son, but every time I’d pull out that brown bottle… In a blink of my eyes my son would be running away at full speed screaming at the top of his lungs, ‘It’s going to HHHHUUUURRRRRTTTTTT’!!! But when that same stuff comes out of the Germ Drop bottle, he’s starting to see the beauty in the bubbles! ahhhh…..
To make your own…. First, download the label that fits your bottle by clicking on the image below. I have the smaller one for the small bottles like the one we have and the larger one for more normal sized bottles. Second, print the labels. I printed mine like a mailing label (and yes I only needed one but ended up with a whole sheet of them.) Lastly, cut, peel and stick!
Let me know if the germ drops are as much a success in your home as they are in ours!
And a couple of points I’ve just learned from readers, 1. if you use HP in a clear bottle like mine, keep it in a dark cabinet or it becomes just plain sterilized water. And 2. HP might not be the best for wound care, so feel free to use the labels on any boo boo medication you prefer. For clarity we use the HP, followed by soap and water with a third course of a neosporin type medication.
