Crayola launches colorful hand sanitizers for kids amid COVID pandemic


Crayola is infusing hand sanitizer with a colorful twist.

With many kids heading back-to-school amid a pandemic, the art supply brand has launched a new “collection of hand sanitizers in classic, fun packaging with traditional Crayola colors” to encourage children to clean their hands.

The colorful sanitizers are tinted in "razmatazz" red, "forest green," "blue bell," and "goldenrod" yellow, per the press release, which are achieved using food dye.

PEOPLE notes that they are made out of 75% ethyl alcohol, so in addition to looking pretty, they also meet the CDC standards.

Each hand sanitizer comes in a crayon-shaped and squeezable bottle making it fun and easy to use. They also come with a matching holder that can be easily clipped onto a backpack for easy reach.

The hand sanitizers are available in packs of four or eight on Amazon. Prices start at $12.99. You can also snag 24-count packs of the 2-oz bottle.

Though they just hit the market, the sanitizers have already garnered a 5-star rating with many reviews noting that they dry quickly without leaving residue. Others noted that it’s a “creative” way to get kids accustomed to washing their hands.

Back in July, Crayola released packs of cloth face masks for kids and adults. There’s a handful of designs to choose from to match your mood or outfit.

There’s even Halloween options that can be worn during the spooky months and include caricature designs of a witch, ghost, and mummy.

Each mask features nose wires, adjustable earloops, and name tags. They come in packs of five so there’s one for every day of the school week. The face masks can also be purchased on Amazon and range from $29.99 to $39.99.
