Disinfectants, sanitizers, and germs

When the Corovirus hit your area what did you already have and not have to rush out and get?

We had plenty of toilet paper and paper towels, 2 gallons of Clorox, Clorox disinfecting wipes, waterless hand sanitizer soap, Lysol laundry sanitizer, Lysol toilet bowl cleaner, and the good old brown Lysol. These are things we keep all the time. Anytime someone has a cough or cold we Clorox our drinking glasses. Toilets get cleaned and wiped off daily. Cabinets, sinks, and tubs get wiped down with whatever disinfectant is close by but this is something we do all the time.

We had plenty of mask because of my concrete work. The gloves we had were a joke but our daughter gave us some of hers.

We have not had to buy any of these things so my thinking is this why are all these items still out at the stores did people not clean, to begin with?

Did everyone use organic items that did not disinfect now they’re scared and they are buying disinfectants? I need to know the answer to these questions. LOL.

Meat ran out at the stores did everyone normally go out to eat?

The Lysol laundry sanitizer is on automatic shipments from Amazon I have been using it for a few years now. Well LOW and BEHOLD my delivery for today is on backorder. This makes me mad because auto-shipments should be there. This I will run out of. Everything else is still holding up well.

We ran out of paper plates one time and we just ran out again but our daughter got us some at Costco.

We have used HEB Curbside for grocery pickups and about 3 weeks ago we had to wait 8 days to get our order now it’s down to 3.

I am determined to use the food we have first and my arsenal of disinfecting items that I already had, to begin with.

We have not supported eating out I feel like its safer to make your own food at this point.

How do you feel about all this and were you already stocked up on supplies?

 

 

 

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.
