WASH YOUR HANDS WITH SOAP & WATER. DON’T TOUCH YOUR FACE. REPEAT!
Yes, this pandemic is nothing to make light of. But in the same respect, full out panic and hoarding is uncalled for. The fighting in the aisles at the market and the shunning of Asian Americans and business is just plain stupid. The CDC and people with knowledge of how this virus works have told us now for weeks how to avoid it. Avoid contact with people who are sick. People who are sick should self-quarantine. Wash your hands with soap. Don’t touch your face.
Here is an excellent article on how soap kills the corona virus.
Short version is that “Soap dissolves the fat membrane of the virus – and the virus falls apart like a house of cards and dies.” This includes handmade soaps like mine. It is soap. Soap kills virus. 2+2=4.
I think what scares me at this time is the thought that people were not washing their hands. And that they did not know how to wash their hands. Nightly news is giving hand washing lessons. Sing Happy Birthday twice while rubbing the soap bubbles around in your hands and between your fingers. Did no one watch M*A*S*H, when Hawkeye and BJ would scrub up? Do it like that.
So stay safe. Use soap and water. And believe me, my thoughts are with everyone as we go through this together.
Till next time
