“I Can’t Believe I Ate the Whole Thing”

Years ago, a humorous television commercial showed a man glumly groaning, “I can’t believe I ate that whole thing!” The commercial was for an antacid, but as a business in the spill clean up and spill containment field, we know there are times when “containment” is not enough.

Especially among schoolchildren. When they overeat and expel the contents of their stomachs, school maintenance staff needs quick relief. And we don’t mean the kind you find in an antacid.

Fortunately, Impact Absorbents has exactly what’s necessary in such circumstances: a Biofresh Biohazard Kit. One of our most popular items for biohazard spill clean up, Biofresh is the disinfecting super absorbent that swiftly encapsulates vomit, blood, and urine while treating the spill with a powerful disinfecting agent.

If the mishap occurs in the schoolyard, you can rely on XSORB Outdoor All-Purpose Absorbent, our non-toxic, environmentally friendly dry clean up formula that absorbs all types of liquids and semi-liquids on contact. XSORB Outdoor makes it easy to simply sweep spills away, saving labor, time and money.

Of course, the best course of action is for kids not to overeat in the first place. Sometimes it isn’t a question of hunger (though those growing bodies do seem to be bottomless pits…) so much as friendly competition, particularly among boys. And at a certain age, projectile vomiting is even prized as a kind of status symbol. Go figure. Even as parents, it’s difficult to fathom. Did we do this when we were their age?

So as savvy school clean up crews know, a healthy supply of Biofresh, XSORB Outdoor, and related spill clean up and spill containment solutions make for a happier school year. Look on the bright side: you may have to clean up the remnants of those delightful school lunches — but you don’t have to eat them.
