With our vacation just around the corner, we have one thing on our minds. DO NOT GET SICK. This means we’ll be stocking up on anything with Vitamin C, and washing our hands every chance we get. Rarely do we ever think about the cleanliness of the cramped airplane or the hotel room we’re about to live in for the next week. What good is all the pre-vacation precautions if we get sick during the trip? The good news is, Norwex makes it easy for us to take a few essential products with us, to stay healthy during our vacation.
Health Friendly Flying
I know that as soon as I get to the airport, my vacation has begun. I love the hustle and bustle of check in and security (really, I do), waiting to board and getting settled in my seat, watching everyone load. However, most people know that airplanes are a great place to catch something. The porous surfaces on the plane, mixed with the constant flow of people, and the not so frequent “deep clean” of airplanes, make it a very gross place for bacteria and viruses to flourish. A study was conducted (a few actually), that found E. Coli and MRSA as frequent flyers, in many common, oh so familiar, places. We’re going to look a few travel friendly Norwex products that can help get us to, and from, vacation illness free!
Norwex has two handy packs to handle most of the top 10 dirtiest places on planes, both in travel size! The Travel Pack of EnviroCloths, or the M.V.P. (Microfiber Variety Pack) are quick solutions. Just pull out one of four EnviroCloths, get it damp (small spray bottles work wonders), and wipe away the grossness. Wipe down the tray table (#1 dirtiest place), seat, remote, armrest, window shade, seat belt buckles and overhead air vents. Basically the entire “cocoon” that you’ll be sitting in for the duration of your trip. When you’re done, just store the wet cloth in your waterproof Reusable Wet Wipes Bag, rinse and hang to dry when you reach your destination. The added bonus is that you’ll have a few extra dry cloths to clean up spills or wipe down hands!
My next suggestion would be to follow up all that fun with Timeless Natural Hand Cleaner to disinfect hands. You can use this anytime and as frequent as you’d like because it’s non-alcoholic, meaning it won’t dry your skin. It’s free of triclosan, BAC, paragons, and sulfates, among others. This organic formula DOES contain things like aloe, lemon fruit extract, rosemary and lavender! It’s highly concentrated, so you only need a small drop and it will last you a long time! It’s not going to irritate your skin and has an all natural citrus scent.
Healthy Hotel Rooms
There are many places germs and bacterial can hide in hotel rooms, and unless you work for the hotel, there’s no way to know for sure what’s getting cleaned and how often. Let’s take a look at what products we can tuck into our luggage to make our hotel room a safe haven during our stay.
This graphic shows where the most sneaky hotel room germ are hiding. Lucky for us, the EnviroCloth will do the trick for all these areas (and more). With a damp cloth and a quick wipe down of surfaces, you can remove up to 99% of bacterial and chemical residue.
If your nose is as good as mine, stinky smells are easy to find and not appealing, especially on vacation. Odour Eliminator easily removes odors from bathrooms, kitchens, garbage cans and more! Just spray this enzyme-based deodorant and let the bacterial spores work to eat up the organic matter causing the odor. Odour Eliminator eliminates the source of unpleasant odors such as mildew, smoke and garbage, leaving a fresh, clean smell.
Ever wonder what’s on the mattress you’re sleeping on every night? I would imagine tat most people don’t think about their mattress at home, much less the one where thousands of people have slept. Mattress Cleaner cleans mattresses, sofas, cushions, curtains, pillows, comforters and other soft surfaces. Anywhere that needs a deep cleaning of body oils, pet dander or organic contaminants or smells, mattress cleaner can clean it. Just strip the sheets, shake, spray, and let dry!
We all know how much work it is to save and plan a great vacation. Make sure you stay well so you can really enjoy! Happy travels! Contact me for questions or more info.
