Now, sure, that lunchbox may be new right now, but it's going to get gross in a hurry if food leaks out or is left behind, potentially resulting in mold, yeast, and non-food borne bacteria. Parents can keep the inside of lunchboxes healthy and safe by wiping them out every day with a General Purpose Cloth from e-cloth. e-cloths are made out of millions of tiny fibers and are clinically proven to remove over 99% of bacteria, as well as heavy dirt, grease, and anything else, using just water -- no chemicals or harsh cleaning products.
