Q: How often should I clean my phone?
The CDC now recommends that you clean and disinfect “frequently touched surfaces” every day, including your phone, desk, and keyboard. However, unless your things may come in contact with a drop of mucus or saliva from a potentially infected person, we do n’t think you need to worry about cleaning multiple times a day—in most cases, once a day is enough. More information and operations can be found here.
Q: When washing clothes, is cold water washing enough to kill the COVID-19 virus on the clothes? If not, what settings should I use?
According to the Centers for Disease Control, washing clothes with washing powder, just follow the manufacturer's instructions. You should use the warmest water possible. You may wonder whether you should use stronger cleaners, such as bleach, or whether you should use a disinfection cycle. Senior writer Liam McCabe said that although these things will certainly not cause harm, they are unnecessary. As the CDC said, detergent and water are very effective against viruses.
If someone in your family is sick, there is some additional guidance. Avoid shaking out dirty clothes. Wear disposable gloves or wash your hands immediately after handling dirty clothes. Sterilize the clothes basket regularly, or use disposable pads, and change them each time they are loaded. For a complete set of laundry guidelines, please refer to the CDC's page on cleaning and disinfecting your home.
Hand washing and hand sanitizer
Q: Many people use alcohol and aloe to make their own disinfectants. Do I have to mix alcohol and aloe vera before using it on my hands? Can I use alcohol alone?
Answer: The hand sanitizer usually contains an emollient (skin softener) to help prevent dry skin. Aloe is an emollient, which is why many homemade disinfectant formulas recommend combining alcohol and aloe gel. (Remember: for self-made disinfectants, you need to use at least 60% alcohol. The correct ratio is important. The following are the fungicide considerations we have listed.) Using pure alcohol will dry and irritate the skin. If your skin is already dry due to these hand washes, we have some tips for dealing with dry skin.
Q: If I cannot find rubbing alcohol, can the diluted bleach replace the hand sanitizer?
Dilute bleach cannot directly replace hand sanitizer. In the past, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provided guidance on how to use liquid bleach to make hand sanitizers as part of the Ebola response plan, but currently CDC does not recommend using this method on covid19. Although the CDC recommends the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers, washing hands with soap and water is more effective-so if you do not have alcohol-based hand sanitizers, do not wash your hands with diluted bleach unless the CDC changes the recommendations. Now, we recommend that you give priority to washing your hands with soap.
Q: I have always seen that the CDC recommends washing hands with soap and water whenever possible, rather than using hand sanitizer. Why are soap and water more popular?
In short, if you wash your hands correctly, you can reduce the bacteria on your skin more effectively than hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer can decompose and kill microorganisms, but it can't actually remove them, and some viruses and bacteria have no effect on them. Like hand sanitizer, hand sanitizer can decompose and kill microorganisms, but it can also physically remove microorganisms, including those that have not been effectively destroyed or destroyed. This is achieved by combining soap, rubbing, and washing with water. To delve deeper into the science behind soap's working principles, here is an excellent article from The New York Times (Wirecutter's parent company). This is the CDC's frequently asked questions about when to use hand sanitizer and when to use soap and water.
Ready to supply
Q: I'm running out of toilet paper and I can't find it everywhere. Do you have any suggestions, where can I find its inventory? What should I do if I run out and cannot restock?
Answer: Try to call the local store to see if they still have toilet paper, or ask when they will purchase the goods, and then plan accordingly. According to this article, some retailers have been adjusting the frequency of necessities from the warehouse to the store, and limit how much toilet paper a person can buy. Our employees were also lucky enough to go to local small grocery stores, discount stores and convenience stores. If you ca n’t find toilet paper in the short term, look for a toilet seat or an attachment for a bidet. Below is more information about our recommended bidet. If you decide to wipe with something other than toilet paper-such as paper towels or wet paper towels-make sure not to rinse them, as they will clog your pipes. Throw them in the trash. Even some wipes advertised as "flushable" may damage the pipes.
Q: It is difficult to find a board game that is played well by only one or two people. Do you have any recommendations?
A: Through the board games we recommend for beginners and the relatively complex board game list that our staff loves, there are several suitable for one or two people to play.
However, we have noticed many stock issues we like. If you cannot find the game you want through a major online retailer, contact your local toy store and bookstore. Local stores may be particularly grateful for your business now, and we have seen many small stores have recently adapted to online ordering and discounted shipping. Wholesale Surgical Mask
