Parents invent device that gets kids to want to wash their hands

DALLAS, May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents worried about their kids picking up the swine flu virus from not washing their hands enough finally have some help. Two parents who became frustrated that their kids were getting sick too often thought the reason might be that their kids didn't wash their hands enough. Those frustrations led to SOAPRISE by Soap Labs LLC, a unique device that gets kids to want to wash their hands.

Their invention was not just another kid's hand soap. With SOAPRISE, the entire bottle LIGHTS UP for 15 seconds after the soap is dispensed. This is the amount of time advised by the Centers for Disease Control for washing your hands in order to effectively kill the germs that cause illness. Children get excited by the flashing lights and their hands get clean by simply learning to "WASH UNTIL THE LIGHT SHOW ENDS."

Kids become very susceptible to viruses like the swine flu because they don't like to wash their hands after going to the bathroom or touching common items at school. "As a parent I always try to find ways to prevent my kids from getting sick. One of the easiest ways to do that is keeping their hands clean," said Jeff Kacines, one of the founders of Soap Labs.

SOAPRISE has been extensively field tested in homes, day cares and schools and the response has been overwhelming. Parents and teachers say the job of reminding kids to wash their hands has never been easier as kids want to use SOAPRISE. SOAPRISE has become a valuable preventive weapon for parents especially with the recent spread of the swine flu virus.

Flashing lights, foaming soap and kid friendly fragrances all combine to make children excited about getting clean. The lights in the bottles last for MULTIPLE refills, making it also an economical purchase during these tight financial times.

SOAPRISE is available at Duane Reade, Pathmark A&P, Amazon.com and Drugstore.com
