Mariel Padilla is a hands-on mom to daughters, Isabella and Gabriela

Her husband may be adjusting to a new role and environment at the Philippine Senate, but Mariel Padilla, the proud wife of election topnotcher Robin Padilla, is happy to be perfecting her role as mom to adorable little girls at home.

The actress, TV host, cooking enthusiast, influencer, brand ambassador and entrepreneur describes herself as a "hands on wife, mom and homemaker," and no one can deny it.

An inspiration to many, she took to shopping platform Lazada's Laz Live event on July 15 and shared her tips and products of choice in making sure she and her daughters are prepared to go back-to-school and face to face.

"My must-haves are from Clorox, Glad and Pine-sol when it comes to cleaning and tidying up. Prestone, of course, is also important because it makes sure the car is in tip-top shape for hatid-sundo to and from school," she started the vlog.

"I really trust these brands to help me run our home more efficiently and to make sure my family is always happy and safe," she added.

Wherever she goes with her children, the actress also admits she brings more than just baby wipes but disinfecting wipes, too.

"Especially now that we will soon take our kids to face-to-face school, not to mention bringing them to their favorite pasyalan in these last days of vacation, we should never forget that we are still fighting a pandemic and we should never let our guard down in making sure everything we touch is virus-free," she explained.

Ever cheerful, Padilla happily imparted that her tips are not limited to cleaning but also in baon-making. I also makes use of Glad Sandwich Bags, which are lunch box indispensables and Glad Mini Cling Wrap, which help keep the kids' baon fresh for a longer period of time."

She ended the widely viewed vlog by wishing back-to-school kids a safe and happy school year, all with the help of mom, of course.
