As a mom to two active kids I do tend to worry about their health, both in and out of the locker room. That’s why I thought it was important to share this informative video on MRSA.
The skin infection, MRSA, is an antibiotic resistant Staph infection that can be potentially life threatening. One way Kids can pick up this contagious disease is by sharing sports equipment. The best defense to help stop MRSA now is by remembering these three simple steps of the Equip Them Well program:
Collect, Disinfect, Donate.
First collect all equipment that has been shared (helmets, shoes, gloves, baseball bats, rackets). Then use a mixture of 3/4 cup of Clorox bleach and 1 gallon of water to wipe down and disinfect the equipment. Lastly visit stopmrsanow.org for information on how to donate outgrown equipment to needy communities.
