youth sports bag for mom {what’s inside yours}

This is a product-sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Puracyn® Plus Duo-Care™ Wound & Skin Cleanser. The opinions and text are all mine.

There isn’t much quite like seeing your child achieve on the field or off and sitting on the sidelines as a mom is a rewarding experience. It can also be a nerve-wracking experience, cringing every time they take a tumble! I’ve learned firsthand that one should never count on others to have the first aid necessities, so I’m urging you to make a sports bag you take to your kid’s games, matches and meets!

Besides bandages, the most used first aid necessity in my family is a wound cleanser, the new Puracyn® Plus Duo-Care™ Wound & Skin Cleanser being my new favorite!!  We used to use another brand but have since chucked that brand.  Why?  Because it stings and the kids hate coming over for a spray, meaning they’d rather their cuts and scrapes go unwashed! Puracyn Plus is more effective than soap and water, less irritating than peroxide and alcohol, doctor-tested and completely safe for use virtually anywhere on the body (even the eyes, ears and mouth!), and it won’t sting like many other methods will.  Game changer!


Life in the desert can be a bit dangerous. Our plants tend to be very spiky; some could downright be defined as weapons. We’re in the middle of re-landscaping the backyard because the previous owners picked the sharpest cacti to plant everywhere. They did not have children, so clearly they were not worried about toddlers, but MY toddler nearly impaled himself on one the other day. That sent me running to the local nursery for kid-friendly succulents and other desert plants. See our landscaping early next week on the blog!


Point is, we all have different threats out there to our children, on the court, in the rink and right in your own backyard.  What you keep in your sports bag might be different from what I do.  My necessities include tweezers to remove cactus thorns and sunscreen to protect young skin from the 120 degree summer rays! Other things found in my bag, bandages, gauze and tape, chemical ice pack and, DUH, Puracyn® Plus Duo-Care™ Wound & Skin Cleanser!  It can handle any minor accidents — cuts, scrapes, lacerations, burns and insect bites – so that little things don’t turn into something worse.  It is for cleansing, debriding and hydrating wounds. Its formulated with a pH balanced, hypochlorous solution, designed to improve the most essential part of the wound treatment process – preparation of the wound bed!!


Puracyn® Plus Foot Wash & Skin Cleanser is another product you should pick up.  It is the safe, effective, FIRST step in first aid for foot sores and irritations, blisters, dry and cracked feet, and rashes.  Find all Puracyn Plus products at Walgreens or Rite Aid!
