Hand sanitizer – when coronavirus is at the gates, but soap and water are unavailable

Washing your hands (best hand soaps here)  and water  is the best way to fight COVID-19, as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says. But soap and water are not always available, for example, on the street and in a store. So you can use sanitizing wipes or hand sanitizer.

CDC recommends alcohol-based sanitizers with at least 60 percent alcohol and more. Alcohol-free sanitizers with other ingredients in most cases are not effective in combating coronavirus. Do not use vodka and alcohol beverages, they are not high enough in alcohol concentration to kill coronavirus. Do not spray bleach on your skin, is a harsh cleaner and you can use it on surfaces wearing disposable gloves. Hydrogen peroxide is less likely to cause damage, but it can discolor some fabrics. Vinegar isn’t effective as sanitizer.

It is very important to use a disinfectant correctly. Use enough fluid to completely wet your hands. “Wash” them until the sanitizer dries, do not rinse and wipe them. If your hands are very dirty, the CDC recommends using soap. It is a good idea to wipe your hands with a wipe or paper towel if possible, and only then apply a hand sanitizer twice. If you remove some dirt and grease, the disinfectant will become more effective. Swallowing alcohol-based and other hand sanitizers can cause poisoning (CDC).
Sanitizers should be stored out of the reach of young children and preferably have child-resistant caps.

Increased sanitizing, may get hands skin dry and start to crack. As a result, you give germs a place to hide. You should use a moisturizer or moisturizer containing soap to prevent that from happening. Soap and creams with ceramides, dimethicone and shea butter, help to provide a good seal on the skin.

The main active ingredients of hand sanitizer are: isopropyl alcohol, ethyl alcohol or benzalkonium chloride. Alcohol-free hand sanitisers contain usually benzalkonium chloride, it is less effective than alcohol for bacteria and viruses, alcohol-based products are “first choice” for hand sanitizers.

The rush to buy bactericide wipes and hand sanitisers has led to empty shelves in stores. But alcohol is the main ingredient, why not to make sanitizer yourself?

Popular recipe contains 2/3 volume parts of alcohol (usually 99.9% isopropyl alcohol or 90%+ ethanol alcohol), and 1/3 part of aloe vera gel. Aloe vera helps to stop your skin from drying, allow your skin to recover quickly from skin irritations, and stimulate quick regeneration of skin cells. Aloe vera enzymes soothe and moisturize skin hands stimulating the production of natural moisturizing oils and preventing dryness.

The isopropyl alcohol concentration in this case is about  66%. Attention! Rubbing alcohol is commonly 70% isopropyl alcohol, but the percentage ranges from 60% to 99%. If the concentration is more 60%, it’s effective, but you can’t mix it with aloe vera or another moisturizers to keep it 60% or more.

Be careful, drinking isopropyl alcohol causes sedation, unsteadiness when walking, and vomiting. It can also be toxic when inhaled and should be used in a well-ventilated area.

Pure ethanol is hard to get hold, so ethanol found in spirits, may be in the sanitizer recipe, but the concentration should be more than 60%. Most vodka has no more than 40% alcohol.

In addition to aloe vera, you may include essential oils, like tea tree oil, in your homemade solution. In addition, cinnamon and thyme oil, although they are not agents that work directly, will be useful against coronavirus. They have some antibacterial properties and prevent the appearance of cracks that can help keep your hands clean. Make sure you hit the mark when it comes to 60% alcohol content.

Load your handmade sanitizer into spray bottles – this isn’t a gel. You can wet a dry wipes (best antibacterial wipes here) with it or spray it on paper towel and use them as a wipe.

 

Soap and water are your best allies in the fight against COVID-19 coronavirus

First advice from CDC (official article here)  to to prevent coronavirus disease is “clean your hands often”. And they recommend to wash your hands often with water and soap or, if soap and water are not available, use an alcohol hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. The CDC prioritizes soap. Hand sanitizer (best sanitizers here) and bactericide wipes (best of them here) work too, but it’s getting harder to find.

 

Use soap to kill coronavirus

How it works

Soap and covid 19 lipid membraneUsing soap is one of the most effective ways to fight with COVID-19, but you have to wash your hands often and properly.

Cheap and effective soap has molecules that at one end are attracted to water and the other side to fats. Coronaviruses are surrounded by a coat of lipid (fat) and protein. And these coats are the type of thing soap loves to destroy! It pull the virus apart, the COVID-19 becomes soluble in water and disintegrates.

The remains of virus are safe for us and just get flushed down the drain. You also get rid of bacteria, other viruses, that are tougher than coronavirus, and harder to disintegrate, they are removed with grease and dirt.

How to wash your hands to protect yourself and your family from COVID-19

Today you need to do more than wet your hands, lather them up and rinse them off. We usually make it too quickly. Remember, the soap should have some time to disintegrate the lipid membrane of the virus.

Lather your hands together, spread the soap to your wrists, over the tops of your hands, all your fingers and between. Lightly scrub your hands so the soap gets under your nails. Wash  for 20-30 seconds and more. You can sing Happy Birthday twice to estimate the length of time.When the time is up rinse your hands well to release remaining bacteria and tough viruses.

Which type of soap we should use

Bar soap – moisturizing one is better than “antibacterial”

According to CDC recommendation, use of bar soap is OK at home, but not in public places.  There  may be a bit more viruses or bacteria on a used bar of soap.

Bar soaps are not the first thing I think about hear “soap” today, it has now been eclipsed by its liquid alternatives. But many of my friends still prefer that block in their hand whether it is in the shower or at the sink. Conventional soap often contains detergents, preservatives, fragrances, etc. Handmade soaps are usually much more expensive, but made from vegetable-based oil with additional ingredients such as herbs or essential oils.

During coronavirus pandemic we should wash our hands often, so we should be especially diligent in choosing a bar soap. It doesn’t matter the formulation of soap, you don’t need “antibacterial soap” — which the FDA advises to skip altogether due to a lack of evidence of its usefulness.

Even if your skin is not dry, to prevent stripping your skin of moisture and leaving  your hand itchy, look at the label. Use hydrating, hypoallergenic, creamy, moisturizing, fragrance-free, and gentle soaps. It’s better to use soap with moisturizers such as glycerine, cetaphil, other soothing ingredients include vitamin E, sweet almond oil, aloe vera, etc. All of them are effective against virus.

Liquid soap – use moisturizing too

Liquid soap have become popular, and it’s more sanitary in public places than bar soap. Our skin is wrinkly, liquid soap to penetrate into all the tiny folds a little quicker, than bar analogs. But liquid soap needs time to do its chemical work too. 20-30 seconds should do the trick just fine.

The skin produces natural sebum oil, the degree of sebum production depends on your skin type. Sensitive skins are highly susceptible to dermatological problems and harsh soaps. But if you have normal skin , it almost inevitable become dry if you wash hands often. Of course, there are hand creams and lotions on the market, but not everyone likes how they feel on their hands.

Moisturizers hand soap works more carefully, effectively remove dirt and germs from the hands. And it is additionally saturated with moisturizing lotions. As a result you feel your hands nourished without that clammy feeling that leaves cream.

People with sensitive skin should avoid liquid soaps with harsh ingredients, such as SLS, sulfates, triclosan, or perfumes. Puracy liquid hand soap is one of the top rated hand soap with hundreds of positive reviews. It’s formule won’t irritate the hands and includes Vitamin E, Aloe Vera, and sea salt. Despite its gentle formulation, natural soap will easily remove COVID-9 off your hands if you wash them properly.

Dermatologists recommend Cetaphil moisturizer, it provide long-lasting hydration without clogging pores, it moistens the skin with natural Vaseline. Additionally, Glycerin helps to wash the pores without any chances of elevating the problem of acne and black spots.

Cetaphil is good soap for extremely sensitive skin. It is very gentle, doesn’t leave any residue and gets the job done while being gentle. This cleanser always leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturized.

Important facts

  • Vodka is not effective as hand sanitizer, it doesn’t meet the current recommendation of the CDC on alcohol contain.
  • Antibiotics don’t work on viruses, don’t use it without prescriptions.
  • Do not use chlorine on your body, it is dangerous and not effective. Use it for surface cleaning.
  • Children are susceptible to COVID, but usually recover fast

 

Review: Huggies Naturally Refreshing Baby Wipes

Our youngest daughter (who is still in diapers) recently started running low on baby wipes. Since my wife had to run to the store anyway, she said she would pick them up.
I thought she would come home with our usual brand of wipes. Instead, she returned with something different; Huggies Naturally Refreshing Baby Wipes.

When I saw this, I wasn’t really sure what to think. The wipes were supposed to give our daughter the same feeling she would have right after a bath (something that I liked considering she can’t stay clean for a day) but, at the same time, we have tried her with different wipes in the past and the main reason we always go back to our regular brand is other brands seem to irritate her skin.

I ended up opening up the wipes almost right away because she ran out of her regular brand a short time later. I honestly couldn’t smell the cucumber and green tea scent the tub advertised. But, after using them, I could definitely tell a difference between these and other baby wipes.

One of the first things I noticed about them is they felt different than other wipes. Most baby wipes have a slimy feel to them (probably because of the lotion inside) that seems to stick to your fingers. These did not. They felt more like damp wash clothes.

So far, our daughter seems to like them. I’ve used them both while changing her diaper and just to clean her up after a particularly messy meal and, unlike with other brands of wipes, she doesn’t put up much of a fight. And, she does seem to be a bit more comfortable after using these than with our regular brand (especially now that it is hot outside and she sweats a lot).

Oh, I should also mention these wipes seem to do a better job cleaning her too. I can do as much with one of these wipes as I could with about three of our regular wipes.

Even more important is the fact they don’t irritate her skin. Again, we’ve had other brands (from well known companies) that would cause her to break out in a rash shortly after using them. I’m knocking on wood a bit but, so far, that has not happened with this particular product.

After trying the Huggies Naturally Refreshing baby wipes, I can honestly say I was impressed enough to buy them again. If you have a child who is still in diapers, I would recommend giving these a try.

Toilet Paper or Wipes?

I almost couldn’t believe the title myself. Surely she isn’t going to write about such a thing, is she? That’s not the sort of thing people talk about in public places. Well that may be so, but my fingers to my keyboard doesn’t constitute talking to me. And if you read it, you’re technically not talking about it either.
In all seriousness, if you go into the store these days, you will see the regular tissue or toilet paper and then you’ll see various kinds of wipes. No, not baby wipes. Not even the Kan-Doo wipes for young children. I’m talking about wipes for completely potty trained adults. The most common brand I’ve seen is Charmin Fresh Mates. You might wonder why an adult needs a cleansing wipe. Surely they learned how to clean themselves good when they were young. Has tissue all of a sudden become not good enough?

It’s not that tissue isn’t good enough, although you might use quite a bit of it until you feel like you’ve cleaned yourself good enough. There is a plus to using the adult wipes. For one, they are flushable so you can dispose of them just like you would do tissue. And they aren’t meant to replace the use of tissue (unless you want them to for personal use, of course). The purpose of these cleansing wipes is to give you a better clean that leaves you feeling fresh. Let’s face it, some tissue can be a bit abrasive. Unless you buy the soft tissue like Charmin or Cottonelle, the others are hard for wiping an area that can be sensitive. Plus, the softer rolls of toilet paper seem to be the ones that run out the quickest.

Charmin Fresh Mates are premoistened wipes which not only make cleansing easier, it is also soothing to the skin. You can feel confident that you are as clean as you would be if you’d washed with soap and water. The blue and white containers the regular packs come in are colored to match most bathroom decors. They even come in refillable packs that you can take with you on the go. With their flexweave texture, Charmin Fresh Mates are said to be stronger than other brands of wipes which may tear easily.

Some adults may prefer to stick with what they’ve been using for years which is regular toilet paper, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But I haven’t heard any complaints from those who prefer to use wipes instead. I’m sure Charmin doesn’t mind whether you choose to just buy their tissue or switch to buying their Charmin Fresh Mates. I personally think both are very good products. The fresh mates are convenient and refreshing while the tissue is sqeezably soft.

10 Uses for Baby Wipes

If you have a baby in the house, you probably know a couple of uses for baby wipes. But if it’s been awhile since you’ve cleaned a baby’s bottom, an updated refresher course in the multitude of uses baby wipes is in order. Inexpensive, aloe-infused, scented or unscented baby wipes are one of a traveler’s must-have items. Place a few baby wipes in a Ziploc bag and tuck them in your purse, tuck a soft-sided container of baby wipes in an overnight bag or suitcase and always keep a container of baby wipes in the car for these ten uses.

Cut or Burn Fist Aid

The aloe in baby wipes contains polysaccharides which have anti-microbial properties that help prevent infection. Gently press a baby wipe against a minor cut or burn for a soothing, cooling cleansing.

Instant Hand Wash

Remove all the dirt and germs from hands with a baby wipe. Rub a baby wipe all over hands and under nails, the aloe’s anti-microbial properties will kill the germs. Perfect for traveling when soap and water may not be readily available.

Makeup Remover Wipe

Sooth Sunburned Skin

Place baby wipes over sunburned area for a few minutes to soothe and cool affected skin. Aloe contains mucopolysaccharides which help ease inflammation caused by sunburn and will help rejuvenate the skin. Place baby wipe in refrigerator a few minutes before using on sunburned skin for even more cooling power.

Tame Frizzy Hair

Lightly run a baby wipe down hair, roots to ends, to tame the frizzies or fly-away hair. The aloe in the baby wipes contains saponin, which is a slightly sticky compound that will keep hair under control.

Surface Cleaner

Traveling near or far can lead you to encounters with less-than-clean surfaces. Baby wipes are the great equalizer in those situations. Wipe away dirt and germs from airline trays, fast food restaurant tables or stadium seats with baby wipes.

Adult Toilet Paper

In a pinch, baby wipes are strong, hypoallergenic and can take care of business.

Review: Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, Your Cleaning Solution!!

A clean house, it is something we all want. Have you ever found that it is hard to find time to clean the house, or to do it effectively when time is short? I may have found a solution for you.
I have tried many different household cleaning wipes. I have not been satisfied with most of them, They leave streaks or a soapy residue or just don’t clean well. I have not been happy with a cleaning wipe until now.

Clorox disinfecting wipes are an absolutely wonderful product. I originally bought them due to my concern about the flu virus. The container said “kills cold amp; flu viruses”. So I thought that if I used the wipes to wipe appliances, doorknobs, etc. that get a lot of hand traffic it would help kill the germs if they were brought home, that was my intent.

Due to the spread of COVID19 coronavirus and high demand, there is a significant shortage of products, so we also recommend considering the following analogues:

During my plight to keep the cold and flu virus away I found that this product does an exceptional job of cleaning. I have used Clorox disinfecting wipes in fresh scent and lemon fresh scent. These come in large containers of 75 wipes per container. My local Wal-Mart carries these in a two pack for $8.57. For the amount of cleaning I can do with the two canisters and how well they clean I feel this is a very good value for my money. I used these for appliances and they clean the smudges, food etc. right off and the appliances shine. There is no soapy residue or streaking left behind and no soapy build up. One wipe will actually clean several appliances. I also found that they took the yellowing that is caused by cigarette smoking off the appliances.

I also used these on the tiles on my bathroom ceiling and what a difference they made. I had a bunch of spots that the flies left on the ceiling and the wipes cleaned it right off with no scrubbing and even diminished some of the yellowing in the tiles. I was able to use one wipe for several tiles.

I have now used these for everything including appliances, my ceiling and around window frames and I am very pleased with the job they do.

These come in plastic canisters that seal tight, the wipes stay moist with no drying out, and the canisters are easily stackable. The wipes are a good size, they are relatively thick and very moist but not dripping wet so that they leave a mess behind or over saturate. The wipes smell great. Both the fresh scent and the lemon fresh scent offer and clean fresh scent with no bleach smell, don’t let the name Clorox fool you, these do not smell like bleach.

Due to the spread of COVID19 coronavirus and high demand, there is a significant shortage of products, so we also recommend considering the following analogues:

These have cut my cleaning time way down and made cleaning so much easier, now I just go through and wipe everything down real quick each day with no scrubbing and everything is clean and the house smells fresh.

I cannot guarantee that they kill cold and flu viruses but I can say that in my household we have been very lucky so far and even with four children in public school we have not had illnesses this winter.

If you want a clean house but time is an issue give these a try because they make cleaning so much easier, and even if you have the time for cleaning try them anyway because they do a super job!!

Battle of the Cleaning Wipes: Clorox Disinfecting Wipes Vs. Lysol Sanitizing Wipes

These pre-moistened wipes were designed to kill germs conveniently and easily. Traditionally this has been done using sponges, rags and paper towels along with a bottle of cleaner.

The theory behind the development of these products is that using the sponge or paper towel for germy jobs can cause the bacteria to be spread around from one surface to another.

But the wipe will sanitize, disinfect, and then be thrown away.
When it comes to Clorox and Lysol, both brands’ wipes basically perform the same function: disinfect and sanitize hard, non-porous surfaces. Though they are hardly of equal quality.

I first discovered such wipes back in 2001. I had decided to try some of the Clorox Wipes, the lemon scented, and the first thing I was taken with was this wonderful scent. I loved it. I would find reasons (or invent them) to use the wipes, sometimes just holding one to my nose and taking in the clean, fresh aroma. I was also happy with how well they cleaned surfaces like counters, floors, toilets, and walls in every room. They left a glossy shine behind along with what I gleefully imagined was a trail of dead germs.

Due to the increased demand associated with COVID coronavirus Clorox wipes are not always available. Therefore, we offer similar products.

These nifty germ fighters do not contain bleach, although the Clorox name is usually associated with it. But wiped on a hard non-porous surface, it will be sanitized in 30 seconds, disinfected in 4 minutes.

My love affair with Clorox Wipes only hit one snag, and that is the strain it began to have on my tight grocery budget. The fact is, a 35 count canister of Clorox Wipes has an average price close to $3. This doesn’t seem like a lot of money in itself, or as just a one-time purchase. But regular use requires regular purchasing, and if you find that it’s difficult to afford the good meat and brand name products at the grocery store, the cost of these will add up quickly and won’t be able to fit in the budget for long.

Since I found myself in this predicament, I decided to buy the less expensive Lysol Sanitizing Wipes. I had never wanted to before, as I was sure that nothing could hold a candle to my wonderful Clorox wipes. Besides, usually when something is cheaper, there’s a good reason for it.

Like the Clorox wipes, which are available in regular fresh, lemon, orange and lavender scents, the Lysol Wipes come in a variety of scents including Citrus and Spring Waterfall, no lemon heaven here though. They are on average about 60 cents cheaper per canister than the same count of the Clorox wipes.

My experience with the Lysol Sanitizing wipes has not been as blissful. First of all, the wipes are not perforated as well as the Clorox Wipes are, and this makes taking only one wipe at a time difficult.
Also, that glossy glaze left by the Clorox wipes is noticeably absent after wiping a surface with the Lysol wipes. Instead, there is a look similar to what there would be if you wiped the surface with a paper towel soaked with water.

I clearly do not prefer the Lysol wipes to the Clorox ones, but the Lysol wipes are the ones I’ve settled for and use regularly. This is only for cost reasons, though. The Clorox wipes are reserved for special occasions, like a big tax refund.

Even though the Lysol wipes have inferior cleaning power and lack the fresh lemon scent of Clorox wipes, they fulfill the basic purpose of using these kinds of wipes in the first place: killing germs conveniently. The consolation for the underwhelming performance of the Lysol Wipes is the name: Lysol.
Lysol has been in the business of disinfecting for a long time, so that makes me feel well enough about using them over the Clorox brand.

Due to the increased demand associated with COVID coronavirus Lysol wipes are in shortage too. Similar products are

Is Alcohol Wipes Safe for Babies and Kids

Is it safe?

The fear of contacting COVID-19 coronavirus has necessitated the use of antimicrobial wipes in everyday life. Alcohol wipes are an effective option when hand washing is not available.

But when it comes to a baby skin its more than many times gentle and soft when compared to an adult and needs proper care than any other skin do. Every time a room is prepared for a baby, almost all are careful enough to make choices that bring in a friendly environment for the baby, free from toxins or any potential hazards. Same is the case for baby care products, any and every product or accessory used for the baby needs to quality the baby care standards.there is no point in using something that is not meant for baby, whatever it is and create trouble for your toddler.

The answer to the question “Is Alcohol Wipes Safe for Babies and Kids?” is a big NO. You can’t use any wipes, which got alcohol in it. Alcohol on baby skin can create issues and never need to be advocated. In fact you cant even use just alcohol free wipes, you need to be using something like a baby wipes. Why i say this is, even if you chose to get alcohol free wipes, you can most of the designed for adult usage, might contain other harmful chemical like chlorine, used for whitening or chemical fragrances. What you must use on your baby is, baby wipes.

What to do?

Use non-alcoholic sanitizing baby wipes, like Babyganics. It has natural ingredients, safe for babies, and smells modestly of citrus essential oil.

A non-alcohol based hand sanitizing wipes are especially good for sensitive skin like a baby’s. These contain aloe leaf juice, glycerin and vitamin E.

The Babyganics wipes are fairly large, won’t tear easily. They are great for hands and I use them instead of traditional hand sanitizer.

Choosing the Right Wipes and Wipe Warmer for Your Baby

Changing a diaper is one of the very first tasks a new parent has to get to grips with (and it certainly takes some time to get used to). When first looking at the shop shelves for the right gear to help you out, you soon see a wide range of baby-wipes and wipe-warmers, designed to help parents – while claiming a wide variety of benefits.

You need to consider the chemical ingredients inserted into ordinary wipes, the efficiency of the wipe and the cost of each use. You should also considered the effect using the wipes had on baby’s skin and the effect of using the wipes on the environment.
