If you’re wondering which way is the best way to keep your home clean and safe on a daily basis, this blog post is a must-read. Cleaning often is tedious to do throughout each day, but it is inexpensive and doable. But don’t stress about it. Just be mindful and clean, clean, clean!
Pandemic Versus Epidemic
Do you know what the difference is between a pandemic and an epidemic?
According to Merriam-Webster, when used as an adjective, pandemic means “occurring over a wide geographic area and affecting an exceptionally high proportion of the population.” But when used as a noun, it means “an outbreak of a disease that occurs over a wide geographic area and affects an exceptionally high proportion of the population.”
And according to Merriam-Webster, when epidemic is used as an adjective, it means “affecting or tending to affect a disproportionately large number of individuals within a population, community, or region at the same time.” But when used as a noun, it means “characterized by very widespread growth or extent : of, relating to, or constituting an epidemic.”
Merriam-Webster further states, “An epidemic is an outbreak of disease that spreads quickly and affects many individuals at the same time. A pandemic is a kind of epidemic: one which has spread across a wider geographic range than an epidemic, and which has affected a significant portion of the population.”
Sanitize and Disinfect to Keep Your Home Clean
All it takes is a great spray bottle, some hydrogen peroxide, and 70% isopropyl alcohol. You don’t have to have a rag to wipe things down after you spritz your surfaces. But your wood and finished surfaces will do better if you follow up with a wipe down. Plus, you’ll wipe up some dirt for an even cleaner home.
1. Disinfect frequently-touched surfaces such as doorknobs, handrails, and tables.
2. Wipe down frequently-used appliances and areas such as large appliances, bathrooms, and countertops.
3. Sanitize the small stuff, too, such as light switches, remote control, and cell phone.
4. Disinfect outside items such as shoes and items you touched while you were out and about.
5. Wash your hands.
Wash Your Hands Properly
Wash your hands and wash them often to help keep your home clean. And when should you wash your hands?
- After you go to the bathroom
- When you blow your nose, cough, or sneeze
- Before you eat
- After you touch a surface that could be contaminated
And there is a way to properly wash your hands. This video from John Hopkins Medicine shows you how.
