If you see the writing on the wall, you might want to buy some cleaning products or make some homemade disinfectants. Across the United States, governors have pulled back and or evolved their States. Have you relaxed wearing a mask and gloves and social distancing? At the height of restrictions in late March and early April, more than 310 million Americans were under directives ranging from “shelter in place” to “stay at home.” The orders varied by state, county and even city. Health officials warn that easing restrictions too soon could bring new outbreaks, but many states have forged ahead inviting students back to School.
When shopping for disinfectants and you find grocery store shelves empty, plan on making your own. Many recipes online, but here’s one you might find helpful.
Homemade Cleaning Wipes
1 cup distilled water (distilled is best, but filtered tap water is fine for short term storage)
1/2 cup vinegar (white distilled vinegar)
1/4 cup isopropyl alcohol (also known as rubbing alcohol or surgical spirits)
12 drops lavender essential oil.
8 drops orange or lemon essential oil.
8 drops tea tree oil.
When you see just how easy it is to make homemade cleaning wipes, you’ll wonder why you didn’t make these sooner. I know I did! Be prepared for the next Stay at home orders.
