If you are a mom with a child starting school for the first time, you want to get things right. Jaska Damato’s son is starting school and her son’s new teacher sent home the list of items he will need before he starts school. One of the items on the list is Clorox bleach wipes. Jaska said these weren’t something she ever used in her own home and didn’t feel comfortable about buying them for her son to use at school. Instead, Jaska reached out to Leslie Reichert, the cleaning coach, for some ideas on what she should do. In this conversation you will hear how to approach your child’s teacher, offer alternatives and even how to change the policies in your entire school.
