7 ways to keep your house clean during the pandemic
Now hygiene in the apartment needs to be monitored more carefully than ever. Especially if the family has children, allergies and people of age, and pets still live at home. But you can once again stretch your legs and not grow to the sofa!
This is what Bemorepanda suggest you!
1. Use natural remedies
Cleaning products must be chosen meticulously, even if you do not have allergies or hypersensitive skin. Chemicals in detergents can be harmful to the health of all. Try not to use products that contain these compounds:
- Polyphosphates They can disrupt the barrier functions of the skin, cause allergies and damage to the respiratory tract. They pollute the environment, falling into nature with sewage water.
- Chlorine. Very volatile and toxic, accumulates in the tissues of the body and can cause various health problems.
- Ammonia. May cause mucosal burns and respiratory problems. Often found in window cleaning products.
- Artificial Flavors. May irritate the airways and cause headaches, especially for allergy sufferers. It is better to buy fragrance-free detergents.
In order not to bring home dangerous cleaners, try to take organic products or household chemicals marked "for children." In addition, do not forget about traditional remedies: for example, vinegar removes spots well, soda copes with scale, essential oils aromatize the air. Use good microfiber brushes and rags that wash everything with little or no household cleaning.
2. Vacuum furniture
Dust is not only what you see on the surface of shelves and tables. Dust particles eat into furniture upholstery and textiles and stand in an invisible cloud every time you sit on a sofa. This can cause respiratory irritation, coughing, asthma, or allergies. To breathe clean air, regularly vacuum upholstered chairs, sofas, and upholstered chairs. Remember to clean the mattress every few months. In the period when all the homework all day in the apartment, it is better to vacuum upholstered furniture once a week. Especially if you have furry pets who love to wallow with you on the couch.
3.Change bedding often
Bed linen should be washed at least once every 10 days. If you sweat in a dream, then more often, about once a week, since a moist environment promotes the growth of bacteria. Now there will be even more unpleasant, but truthful information. At night, our body goes through cell renewal processes. This means that the old epithelium is actively dying off, giving way to new skin integuments. The skin particles have nowhere to go except to stay on sheets and blankets.
4. Wash the bathroom thoroughly.
Bathroom is a place with high humidity. In such an environment, fungus and mold quickly multiply, which can be dangerous for allergy sufferers and people with weak immunity. Pay particular attention to the seams at the joints between the tiles: mold often accumulates in them.
5. Clean your refrigerator and kitchen shelves regularly.
Even if you are attentive to the issue of food storage, from time to time it happens to forget a rotten apple in a fruit box or not to notice how open cottage cheese has deteriorated. Bacteria, mold, fungi are frequent inhabitants of any places where food is stored. They can cause food poisoning, an upset stomach, or an allergic reaction.
6. Ventilate the apartment
When all family members spend most of their time at home, it is especially important to often air the rooms. The fact is that if many people breathe in a confined space, CO2 levels increase in the air.
7. Wet more often.
A powerful vacuum cleaner will help get rid of dust, but the final chord of cleanliness always remains with wet cleaning - washing floors and other surfaces. This procedure removes dust and balances dry air. After washing the floors in the apartment it will be easier to breathe. In addition, this is the only way to get rid of all the dirt and germs under your feet.
Not the design we wanted, but the design we deserved.
Another viral thread appeared on Twitter. It began with the post of Sarah Schauer, who asked readers to share the worst photographs of design or architecture that they have. Here is the original tweet:
Social network users readily uncovered their stocks of photos. We collected the most dubious architectural and interior solutions.
This is not a house, but a nightmare.
I don’t know about the worst, I would put 3/5.
I deeply hate this house.
And here is my minute of glory!
I love the toilet slide.
This is the restroom in the house I was planning to buy. The whole floor was like that.
I don’t know if this house can be called artsy or crazy. Depends on which room to look at. Yes, these are all rooms of the same house. And he can be yours for 300,000 dollars!
I lived here, and I had to lean on the bathtub to brush my teeth. And the toilet was impossible to use with the door closed.
- I have more!
- For the first time I feel such a threat from the toilet.
A kitchen sink in a house that I rented for 2 years.
I think we have a winner in discomfort! And yes, I am in the photo. I was waiting for the opportunity to share this masterpiece of architectural design. Enjoy it.
The problem is solved.
The concept of an "open bathroom" in action.
Doors to the bedroom, bathroom and wardrobe.
They made their choice, and this is not the best choice.
The house that I watched. The room itself is round, and for some reason electricity has been brought to the platform.
I challenge you to find something worse.
Not really a house, but could not help but share this masterpiece with you:
The coronavirus crisis affecting the whole world has given ideas to parents in India, whose children came to the world at the end of March.
The two are the happy parents of some twins, a boy and a girl, and they wanted to remember for the rest of their lives the difficult times that the whole world goes through. So when the time came to give the babies a name, they didn't hesitate.
The girl was given the name Corona, while the boy was named Covid.
"In the context in which the cars were stopped, we both arrived at the hospital late at night, after much suffering. Since the birth took place after such great difficulties, I wanted the names to be memorable and unique, "the mother of the little ones said.
India is also affected by coronavirus, so far over 3000 cases have been confirmed, 75 dead, but 213 people have been cured.
Their relatives, friends, friends of their friends died. In all families there is a tragic story: death, illness, poverty, bankruptcy. After 11 weeks of severe quarantine, the "lock" was opened and Wuhan City, the "heart" of the pandemic that has plagued the world is trying to come back to life.
The city with 11 million inhabitants begins to fall asleep after more than two and a half months, it was like a ghost. The new coronavirus started right here from an animal and bird market and spread uncontrolled across the globe. Today (April 8), a few days after China had no local transmission case, and just a day after the historic "no death of Covid-19" restrictions were lifted. The quarantine imposed on January 23 ended at midnight Tuesday through Wednesday, and passengers began storming buses and stations, some wearing full-length suits.
But the over 80,000 cases and 3,300 deaths remain behind and the hope that one day the world will look exactly like before the coronavirus. For now, it's just hope, because there's a long way to go.
Although some restrictions have been lifted by the authorities, many control measures remain in place. The Chinese were warned not to travel unless absolutely necessary. Those who go to Beijing go through two rounds of tests, and in other provinces, those who come to Wuhan have to be quarantined for two weeks, the New York Times writes.
In addition, everyone is required to use a tracking application on their phone or tablet and to prove that they were not sick or did not come into contact with sick people of COVID-19. The Chinese system records every place where people make payments and the network of hundreds of millions of surveillance video cameras is famous.
On social media, Pink mentioned that she and her son spent weeks in isolation after testing positive for coronavirus tests, but they both finally tested negative for the infection a few days ago.
When she and 3-year-old Jameson started showing symptoms two weeks ago they were already sheltering in place, she said. She is thankful for her doctor that he was able to get Pink and her son tested in time for the virus.
"Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19," she said on her Instagram page. "Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive. My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative."
She added that she had contributed with $1 million— half of the donation is going to the Emergency Fund for Temple University Hospital and the other part to City of Los Angeles Mayor's Emergency Covid-19 Crisis Fund.
Many of actors, musicians and famous politicians have tested positive for coronavirus.
Pink is one of celebrities that have contributed to fighting coronavirus, as the virus spreads fastly across the United States, which is slowly becoming the new epicenter of the illness.
You can’t find a protective mask in pharmacies or it’s price is hitting you? If you want to protect yourself, a mask to cover the mouth and nose can be made at home. However, a textile mask is not as effective as a surgical one, but it is very useful during this period. If you do not know how to sew, with a scissors, a piece of material and two hair bands you can make a protective mask.
The American Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) has reverted to previous recommendations made in the context of the pandemic and currently believes that wearing simple masks in textiles could slow the spread of coronavirus.
Instructions for making your home a protective mask
The material used should be cut in such a way that it is wide and long enough to cover your nose and mouth
The material should be bent at length.
At each end tie a hair elastic.
Bring the ends tied inwards.
Arrange the mask near the mouth and nose and fasten the elastics behind the ears.
It is important to know:
•Simple surgical masks have a much higher protection than textiles.
• Even if we wear a mask, we must keep at least 3 steps away from the others.
•We disinfect / wash our hands before and after putting on our masks and do not touch them when wearing them.
•After each use, the textile masks must be washed: a washing machine is sufficient.
•Such textile masks are especially useful in places where physical distance is difficult to maintain: queues, small shops or pharmacies, crowded means of transport, etc.
• This recommendation can be used as an additional public health measure.
• The CDC emphasizes that textile masks should not be worn by children under 2 years of age or by persons with respiratory problems.
• The materials from which the textile masks are made do not sufficiently protect the hospital environment.
•The World Health Organization strongly recommends wearing surgical masks or special protective masks in the hospital environment.
