Keep COVID-19 at Bay with 7 Essential Personal and Household Items
Even as Singapore is reacquainting ourselves with pre-circuit breaker living, it’s important to keep in mind that we aren’t out of the woods yet. But by continuing to practise safe distancing measures while we go about our daily activities, and keep up on personal hygiene and home sanitation, there’s a good chance that we’ll be able to keep COVID-19 at bay. Here are key items every home should have to help us stay safe indoors and out.
ENI Disposable Medical Face Mask
With face masks now part and parcel of daily life, you don’t want to run out of stock at home. And don’t be fooled by poor quality #fakemasks on the market either. The three-ply ENI Disposable Medical Face Mask has a Bacterial Filtration Efficiency rated at at least 95 per cent. Made of a skin-friendly non-woven material, it remains soft and comfortable for up to eight hours of wear, and comes in a box of 10 pieces.
For additional splash protection, wear a Face Shield. These are lightweight and equipped with an adjustable latex-free foam headband for additional comfort. The shields are easy to clean, and also given anti-fog and anti-static treatments for a better view all around. Note that those above 12 years still need to don a face mask unless you have a medical condition in which wearing face masks may lead to breathing difficulties.
Lifebuoy Total 10 Hand Sanitizer
Along with face masks, hand sanitiser is a must-have everywhere you go. Containing 70 per cent alcohol, Lifebuoy Total 10 Hand Sanitizer kills 99.9 per cent of germs. Just a small amount helps protect our hands from germs for up to 10 hours after each application! The formula also has aloe vera leaf juice to prevent your hands from drying out. It comes in a 500ml pump bottle, making for easy decanting into pocket size bottles for carrying out.
Lifebuoy Antibacterial Wet Wipes
Every mum knows the value of wet wipes when it comes to cleaning those grubby fingers before and after meals. Lifebuoy Antibacterial Wet Wipes not only cleans hands, but sanitises surfaces like tables and toilet seats too. Best of all, they are paraben-free, enriched with vitamin E, and pH balanced to be gentle and non-irritating on skin. The new convenient packaging containing 48 wipes is especially useful for families on the go.
