Being a mother means being constantly worried about the health and safety of our family. It’s a feeling that never goes away even when our children become adults themselves. Outside or inside our home, we want them always safe and secure. So how do we protect them inside our homes?
We spend a lot of time as a family – watch movies together, eat meals together, play in the backyard together and so much more without realizing the number of germs we are also sharing together. When it comes to the health of our family, we can never be too careful. We clean up after meals and any spills, disinfect every surface and make sure that everyone sanitises their hands regularly. We must admit that hand washing is sometimes an important act that we disregard. In moments that hand washing is not an option, a home sanitising station will come in handy.
The benefits of having a hand sanitising station are that everything you need to disinfect is all in one place. This way, things are easy to find rather than going around finding things because they are all right next to each other and are ready to use. Keeping these products together helps promote hand hygiene at home to prevent the spread of harmful germs and bacteria. In this blog, we will give you mommies some tips on how to create your own sanitising station using things that are easy to find in any store or kitchen.
Your sanitising products can be composed of disinfecting wipes, alcohol-based hand sanitisers, a scrubber sponge, antibacterial soap, paper towel and other products you may see fit for your do-it-yourself project. These products will be your first line of defence against germs, bacteria and viruses that can make your family sick.
Place them all in one container for easy access and easy refill or replacement when needed.
Find a place where your sanitising products will fit nicely next to each other. Somewhere the family mostly hangs out together is an ideal location or somewhere near the sink or around the kitchen will also be good. Visibility of your sanitising station is important to promote better hygiene at home.
It is important that your sanitising station is very accessible and always within reach of the family members. This way, everyone is more likely to use the sanitising station.
Putting a label on it is like making it official. With a label, everyone is aware of what this station and the products on it are intended for. With a label, your sanitising station is also more visible. When you have visitors, they can also be aware that cleanliness and sanitation is an important part of your home.
You can also design your sanitising station however you like and whatever colour you may prefer. You can even let family members help out in doing this home project.
Taking care of our family is our most important task as a mother. There are several ways to protect them from germs, bacteria and viruses and here is one creative way to do it. Let us not spread these, set your sanitising station in place and keep your family healthy. Be a super mom, create your own sanitising station at home and promote hand hygiene.
