HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Are microbes going back to school with your kids this fall? Not if you fill their book bags with school supplies that feature built-in Microban((R)) antimicrobial product protection to help prevent the growth of bacteria that can cause stains, odors and product deterioration.

At a time when consumer concerns about the presence of microbes in schools is growing, school supplies with Microban protection provide greater peace of mind to students, parents and teachers.
