In times like this with the Corona Virus pandemic, I am reminded of some of the ways my great-grandmother used to maintain her household cleansed. There were not as many medications and antibiotics back then, so some of these habits were practiced a lot more.
Here is a list of the few I remember and, while adding a couple more.
- Aerate your home by opening the windows daily. Did you know that it is a great way to remove the presence of pollutants and bacteria? Turn off your air conditioner if you are a warm climate and put your coats on if you are in a cold climate, either way, make sure you aerate.
- Use your disinfectant the proper way! Don’t just spray and wipe! It doesn’t give the antibacterial enough time to do its job. Leave on for 15 minutes and wipe thoroughly with a microfiber cloth.
- Did you know that all you really need is Bleach, Soap (black soap preferably)( studies have shown that people who use antibacterial products, are just as sick, as those who only use plain soap) and some Lysol spray? Buy yourself an empty spray bottle and dilute the bleach into that spray bottle.
4. Remember to disinfect the door knobs, people are touching them all day long.
5. Do not store all of your toothbrushes together. If someone was sick in your house, you can always boil them to disinfect.
6. Do not vacuum if someone was infected with coronavirus in your home? Do not vacuum. Indeed, there is a risk of diffusing the tiny particles. If no one was infected: Do vacuum regularly.
- Aromatherapy is a good way to fight a cold, and can even be helpful in easing flu symptoms and disinfecting the home. It is also a great way to stay looking young, as it will help to keep much needed moisture on your skin. Personally recommend Vetiver oil, it’s a powerful antimicrobial
PS: Lemon is a natural antibacterial and antiseptic, do feel free to cut up a few slices to put into your water bottle
