Hygiene Measures To Imbibe For Returning To Work At The Office.

Life of late has started revealing itself like a computer game, with the challenges refusing to deter, and by the time, we stumble, learn, pick ourselves up, somehow manage to get around & past a level…boy-o-boy the next level with it’s multifaceted & manifold challenges are standing arms crossed, smiling defiantly at us…ahem… let’s gear up!!!

So the year 2021 has begun, we already are past January, with most of us having found our way back to our office desks. That is to say, the morning rush at home, the neatly packed lunch boxes have made their comeback, masks, the files, daily planners, laptops, chargers, keys, wallets, pens, spectacles and our inseparable [AI enabled making us a cyborg] Mobile Phones have again begun making their scheduled routine outings in our office bags in cars, pooled cars,cabs, bikes, autos, buses, meaning we, office travellers are all venturing  into probable virus risk zones on a daily basis, and yes we are taking some mandatory precautions like the mask, the hand sanitizer and the wide smiled “Hello!” communicating the same zeal, that of a firm grip handshake, some of us also carry wipes. 

But are these precautionary measures enough or do we need to take some more steps to ensure safe hygiene ?

Of Course, we do require more measures, these practices are bare minimum, considering the exposure we are taking each day and the risk that is associated.

The markets are abuzz with solutions, we just need to be hygienically discretionary to know where & what are the risks we are dealing with and need to be market aware to pick pocket friendly correct products.

Identifying and disinfecting the high risk areas:

The frequently touched things and surfaces tend to become high risk areas, our entire office bag contents need to be properly sanitized, multiple times through the day which does include our spectacles, mobile phones, laptops, keys, wallets, the office desk. All it takes is 70% Alcohol Wipes to rub the surface clean, sanitizing them perfectly.

And do not forget The Office Bag itself needs to be disinfected regularly  depending upon the type of bag you are using, if it’s washable wash it on the weekend if its the classic case run the wipes generously, It gets exposed may too much and we tend to be touching it quite often to make it high risk s

These Alcohol wipes are really very effective, don’t step out of home for the office without them, they come in handy practically anytime when our hands need to hit that perfect hygiene quotient.The canister pack is fine if you carry a large bag and are a high hygiene champ, else if you otherwise use disposable paper tissues and hand sanitizers to disinfect the high touch surfaces then carrying a few singles pack of these Alcohol wipes can do you good too, but carry them nevertheless.

If you commute to the office by your car or pooled, its equally important to disinfect the vehicle regularly, the steering wheel, the gears shifter, the door handles & dashboard needs to be sanitized, you can choose Alcohol Wipes or the tissue + sanitizer option, the seat covers regularly disinfected & washed clean depending on the type of fabric they are of. The car should be regularly vacuumed so no bacteria settles in any hidden nook or corner. Keeping a pack of Wipes in the car dashboard is sensible.

If you travel by public transport wearing gloves or holding a paper hanky to touch any surface while boarding or alighting is imperative, and be mindful of sanitizing your hand after travel or in case you have a habit of touching your face often holding on to an Alcohol Wipe in your hand is mandatory to protect against any virus transfer since the surfaces on the public transport are highly prone to bacteria built up.

Avoid touching the office building door handles , the office lift boards with bare hands, use a key instead to select floors, keep a tissue in hands or wear gloves to open doors

Once you reach your allocated workstation at office [which should be disinfected and cleaned before an employee reaches and when the employee leaves for the day] wash your hands 

clean with soap and water, maintain social distancing, cover your face with masks, encourage remote virtual meetings and avoid business travels unless absolutely necessary.Encourage others to use the hand sanitizers or wipes. Most Employers are aware of the high hygiene requirements post this pandemic and are taking due care of their employees by keeping a healthy supply of sanitizers at the entry and disinfecting  the workplace as per the norms and issuing guidelines from time to time. 

If you, or any other employee is unwell, take leave to recover else it puts the others at risk of contracting it.

It was challenging to work from home….wonderful to be back at the office but the challenge has multiplied, a little effort at maintaining routine precautionary measures and generous stocks of Hand Sanitizers, Alcohol Wipes, Paper Hankies shall surely help scale the challenge successfully.

 The benefit …healthy us & optimal output at work….effort totally worth The result !!!

70% Alcohol Wipes are more effective than Alcohol-Free Wipes?

Intriguing and interesting times we are into. This apparently has been the most thought over product bought from the supermarket in 2020. Hygiene and Sanitizing products created new sections and were introduced at all the shops, supermarkets and each and every online marketing website. 

Unquestionably, the thought process going into this product choice is imperative, and the question it brings forward absolutely pertinent. 

So, which wipe to buy, the 70% Alcohol or the Alcohol-free wipe? 

Hmmm…well, technically speaking the answer lies on the label itself, that is if we are aware what requirements the composition printed on the label fulfils. Some manufactures are generous enough to mention not just the proportion of composition, but also the utility of each, but space constraints on the product label usually leave many questions unanswered, so we find a large number of people at the supermarket fiddling with these newly introduced sanitizing products, some intently peering with their spectacles on these finely printed texts on wipe canisters and zip pouches, for once not looking into the production, expiry date or the pricing but curiously looking for information to make this all-important health determining choice for the entire family. We have here tried coming forth with all that we could find about their composition and what the composites achieve in terms of hygiene. 

Let’s begin with the 70% Alcohol Wipes, their composition and what they do, 

Ethyl Alcohol at 70% concentration has a very fast antibacterial action against germs and so is very effective as a sanitizing disinfectant. Alcohol Wipes are a blessing when we are travelling and are a must in the travelling kit, in fact since the advent of this pandemic it becomes imperative to keep a few Alcohol wipes in our everyday travel bag. The Alcohol dries very quickly and so the singles pack in Alcohol Wipes for individual travelling is such a relief. Just as the canister is a sensible and reasonable option to be kept at home, and for family outings. 

Isopropyl Alcohol kills 99.99% of germs & diverse range of microorganisms on contact, it is an approved content by most medical associations and is mostly found as the main content on disinfectants used for the medical purposes. These 70% Alcohol wipes are equally effective for cleaning instruments and non-invasive medical devices. Alcohol Wipes come in handy to disinfect the doorknobs, door handles, the fridge handle and the other most touched areas of the house, they are equally effective in cleaning our electronic gadgets and should be used at least once a day.

● Alcohol’s inherent nature of deep pore cleansing can leave the skin dry, the Vitamin E antioxidant present in the Alcohol Wipes is safe and gentle on the skin, it nourishes & protects the skin from damage. 

Benzethonium chloride is an antiseptic antifungal & medically suitable for cleaning wounds. 

Isopropyl Glycol Glycerine leaves skin moisturized, feeling fresh after use & has a long-lasting antimicrobial effect. 

Isopropyl myristate is a medical polar emollient that allows good & easy absorption & locks moisture allowing the skin the softness it deserves. 

So, It makes perfect sense to say that 70% Alcohol Wipes sanitizes hygienically & cleans skin effectively and are absolutely suitable for everyday use. 

So that brings us to the question, 

Why use Alcohol-Free wipes? 

What advantage do they bring to the table? 

Alcohol-free Wipes generally simply called Wet Wipes or Natural Wipes are used for regular general personal care purposes, Skin cleansing wipes, Makeup removing wipes and Baby Wipes all fall into this category. 

Wet Wipes contain cleansers and small amounts of soap that make them suitable for skin Cleansing. The Benzethonium chloride present in a small proportion helps in general cleaning inhibiting the growth of germs but is not equipped to kill them. And so cannot be used to sanitize surfaces with high touchpoints. 

They contain natural and essential oils and compounds that bring perfume, which works well when used where high sanitizing is not required and cleansed, healthy and soft skin is the requirement. In fact, to be specific Alcohol-Free Wipes are the ideal choice when skincare & only general hygiene is to be maintained since too much of Alcohol could cause skin irritation. This also explains why Baby Wipes are Alcohol-Free Wipes, harsh chemicals & paraben free with large quantities of natural oil and aloe to keep gentle baby skin soft and clean, moisturizing & retaining it.

So, Here We are with the complete product composition information, Both are essential, Both equally effective in their role and function and Both should invariably be bought and used on appropriate discretion. 

HAVE NO CONFUSION…PICK THEM BOTH…BOTH ARE GREAT IN COMBINATION!

A Blessed boon in Baby Care Products: Gentle Protection Baby Wipes, Paraben Free & Environment Friendly

Sir Jerome K Jerome once remarked, “It’s only the first child that takes up the whole time of a parent, five or six more do not require nearly as much attention as the first one.”

Well, with the first child comes the first experience of parenthood, the first experience of protective love and care, the first-hand experience of suggestions given by other first-hand experiences of one and many kids experienced parents and thus so begins the trial and error phase of life, trials and errors in sleeping patterns, feeding patterns, feeding formula products, and the most important Baby Care Products.

Each product in the entire Baby Care Products range is so important in keeping our little bundle of joy comfortable, clean and happy. It also marks the beginning of our first experiences of knowing how much a smile of a child means, and so all the tasks [which inadvertently are quite a lot] that involve taking care of our little one seriously matter to earn those precious smiles.

One of the most recurring tasks in 24*7 is the pee and poop clean up job and if the little champion is on formula milk and formula food, then, that little puke job after feeding and before burps recur just as much. Baby Wipes are such a blessing, a boon in child care, they ensure hygiene on clean up.

Here note, Paraben-free and Alcohol-free Wipes are recommended, a child’s skin is tender and alcohol-based wipes are meant for us adults for maintaining the hygiene of our seasoned skin which can sustain that amount of chemical reaction.

Baby Wipes ensure no alcohol but purified water in their product, making it safe for new baby’s tender skin. The presence of essential natural oils, aloe, glycerine by-products and calamine keeps their skin soft by locking the moisture.   

When every day is a normal healthy day, every baby generally needs a clean up nearly every 30 minutes. Note, good Baby Wipes don’t have any perfume, as the chemicals present in perfumes tend to be skin irritants. Baby Wipes are safe to gently rub their angel faces and occasionally rub clean their fingers and toes to ensure their overall hygiene.

Also, Note to pick the ones that say biodegradable on disposal. It’s a responsibility we carry as aware citizens to pick environmental friendly products as much as possible and contribute our bit, especially now when novel non-woven fabrics have made their way increasing the effectiveness & making the price difference marginal.

These Baby Wipes habits are to continue long after the baby clean up years pass, Kids are Kids and we are to always remain protective about them, keeping a pack of Baby Wipes on the dining table is a habit we cannot afford to lose, cleaning kids chew toys as they teeth, rubbing their hands and faces when they rush around and pick food to eat without washing their hands. 

Well, Baby Wipes are quite handy and useful for us adults too, once they make their way home they know for sure they are here to stay. The cyberspace is filled with their users sharing a 100 uses of Baby Wipes in their lives. Obviously, no use is as important as the one they are designed and conceptualized for… Baby Care!

Needless to say, ensuring a good stock is quite imperative.

God bless…Happy smiles to All Babies!
