SHELTON, Conn., Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyone could use a helping hand from time to time – preferably one that's 99.99 percent germ free. That's why the Wet Ones® brand – the hand wipes division of Energizer Personal Care, LLC – is thrilled to support the newly launched TeacherLists.com – a free service dedicated to helping keep America's classrooms fully stocked with supplies so that teachers don't have to break the bank come back-to-school season.
According to the National School Supply and Equipment Association, each year teachers spend an average of $462 out of their own pockets to keep their classrooms stocked with important supplies and learning tools. With the help of TeacherLists.com – a site developed by School Family Media Inc. that offers the largest database available of current teacher wish lists and school supply lists – parents can help to relieve teacher's burdens by pitching in and providing the things America's classrooms really need: from Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes to paper towels, pencils and glue sticks.
Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes are a twice as handy solution for kids to quickly wipe away messes and kill 99.99 percent of germs on hands when soap and water aren't available. Available in a 40 count canister, 24 count box of individually wrapped singles and 15 count travel pack, Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes are convenient to pack in the backpack, lunchbox and stock in the classroom.
"The Wet Ones® brand is proud to support TeacherLists.com, helping to make back-to-school shopping easier," said Erik Rahner, Energizer Personal Care Group Marketing Director. "With Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes in the classroom, teachers are getting the supplies they need and parents are helping by keeping their kids as healthy as can be."
In order to use the site, teachers or school volunteers are able to register and upload student and school supply lists, in addition to teacher "wish lists" which include items like Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes, tissues, paper towels and other important cleaning supplies that help keep a classroom clean, organized and germ free. TeacherLists.com is also available via social media, allowing teachers to quickly and easily post their supply requests to Facebook or their district websites. Teachers can also use social-media, which allows teachers to post requests on Facebook or on their school district and classroom websites.
The TeacherLists.com site already boasts – by far – the largest database available of current school supply lists and teacher wish lists, with lists from more than 50,000 classrooms (from all 50 states) already live on the site. Teachers and schools that get active with the site – by posting their lists and sharing those lists with parents using the site's sharing tools – earn free bonus supplies from TeacherLists.com's growing sponsor list.
"Wet Ones® Hand Wipes are a perfect brand for all of our school support efforts at TeacherLists.com," notes the site's founder, Tim Sullivan. "Teachers and parents alike tell us that killing germs in the classroom is a huge priority and a huge challenge. Teachers need the help with the supplies through the entire school year. Parents are willing to help. And this partnership between Wet Ones® Hand Wipes and TeacherLists.com makes that whole equation so much easier."
With the support of its key sponsors like Wet Ones® Hand Wipes, TeacherLists.com is also kicking off a number of rewards programs that will provide hundreds of thousands of dollars of free school products that will be distributed during the 2012-2013 back-to-school season.
Parents, teachers and schools can get more information, find lists and post lists by visiting TeacherLists.com.
