Germs and the Pandemic

What are you doing to protect your family during this pandemic?

Since I have high blood pressure, heart and lung issues I am taking extra precautions. My husband has high blood pressure and diabetes. We are trying to protect ourselves the best we can.

I have self quarantined for the last week. We only do HEB curbside pick up for groceries and we get Walmart and amazon deliveries. We go through the drive-through at CVS to pick up prescriptions.

Now what you have to remember is all your groceries, scripts and products have been touched by other people so disinfect boxes, packages and bottles of stuff with wet wipe disinfectants.

If you have some wipes that are dried out do not throw them away. Wet them with water and pour rubbing alcohol on them. Put in a zip lock and pack it into the container. Just remember to use these on surfaces only they work great.

I make meals for my mother n law she is 92 years old. Rather than me taking them over to her, my husband has been doing this for the last two weeks this was for both our safety. We will now change this to ringing the doorbell and doing a drop off only for her safety.

Elderly people should not be exposed to those who are around a lot of people my husband still has a few more weeks of working 3 day work weeks so, therefore, I think the drop off is the best option.

I keep Clorox disinfecting wipes so I have a few containers of those. I also have the brown Lysol,  & Lysol laundry sanitizer. On top of that, I have two gallons of Clorox. This is part of my normal cleaning products, not something I had to rush out and get.

I have a product called Oxvir Five 16 Concentrate it is a one-step disinfectant cleaner. This product is a Virucidal, Fungicidal, Bactericidal, Mildewcidal. It comes in 1 1/2 quart container of concentrate and its made to go on a hose and trust me very hard to get out otherwise. We figured out you can puncture the container and mix it up in a gallon jug but then you have now punctured this large container so glue the hole shut and tape with duct tape.

I have the quart containers of instant hand sanitizer that goes in the dispenser for commercial use.  I do love my auctions for cleaning products lol.

I feel as though this nightmare will not end anytime soon.  Wash your hands and then wash them again. Change out hand towels several times a day.  Disinfect doorknobs and surfaces that are touched often. Do not forget steering wheels and door handles in cars. Wipe off your credit and debit cards, the bottom of purses and handles and also your wallets.

Wash your children’s backpacks, shoes, etc.

Do not hug anyone, shake hands or get more than 6 feet from those you have to be around in stores or work.

Children are not showing symptoms like adults so do not trust the fact they are not sick today because they might be sick tomorrow. We have not been around our grandchildren in over a week.

We can all get through this by taking precautions and being smart and most of all using common sense.

    1. The hardest thing is the grocery store. I have been doing curbside for a year now. I place my order one day pick it up the next. Since its a week long wait I think we will pick up milk, bread, eggs at the local dollar store and use up all the food in the pantry, freezer and fridge and then worry about the grocery store run.
      Yall stay home and stay safe.
