Fight HFMD with this special kit!

[Sponsored Post]

According to this news article by Straits Times, Hand Foot Mouth Disease (HFMD) is at it’s all record high. Now that Bubba is exposed to more children in school, HFMD as well as gastric flu are one of the dreaded illness/ virus that I would not want of any child.

My heart often skips a beat when the email notifications flash in my mailbox informing parents of a new case on HFMD. I worry for Bubba’s health for she has fallen ill almost every month since starting school. We do give her vitamins and try to instill healthy eating habits, but I guess it’s really all part and parcel of building up her immunity.

But one can also set one’s mind at ease by trying to keep your home environment clean and free of germs where possible. Thanks to the good folks from Our Lifestyle Shop who have specially put together this HFMD Emergency Prep Kit (S$99) consisting of Safehands (Unscented), B Sanitized and Foaming Lemon Scented Cleaner/ Disinfectant. (Note: Ice-cream marquee light not included but used as a prop for the shoot.)

We are already huge fans of Safehands and B Sanitized. In fact, when our complimentary bottle of B Sanitized is finished, I would stock up on them. They are super handy when it comes to sanitizing Bubba’s toys or play-room in a jiffy. As for Safehands, they are currently the only brand of hand sanitizer that we would bring out to sanitize Bubba’s hands. They are not drying which is great for tiny hands.

We will be reviewing the Foaming Lemon Scented Cleaner / Disinfectant soon but in the meantime, I really think this deal is not to be missed! Offer valid till 30 June 2016 or while stocks last so please do stock up or if you have yet to try their products, this maybe a good start. 🙂

Note: A can of Foaming Lemon Scented Cleaner / Disinfectant is given for review. No monetary compensation has been received. This post was written as part of the Ambassadors Program.

Sponsored Review: Putting B-Sanitized™ to use

[Sponsored review] :

Many have asked where Bun will be sleeping when she arrives. Well, we started out with really good intentions, we wanted her to sleep with us to be close to her and check on her obviously. Then when we shared what we were going to do, friends who are parents started sharing their side of the story and gave their advice. So the Man and I, we laid our cards and discussed sleeping arrangements for Bun. In an ideal world, if it works, then great. If not, we always have a back-up plan and we don’t mind just using that if it works.

So for now, Bun will be sleeping in the guest-room which will double-up as a nursery until she turns about a month or so and we do up minor renovations for the home. The idea is for her to have a room that’s really close to us. But of course, plans may change along the way, so again, we are going with the flow for this one.

Her room for now is pretty bare, ‘cept for her essentials and her cot. Shelves are also bare with minimal decor items as we want to keep her environment as clutter-free as we possibly can before the books/ toys and randoms flood the shelves.  Plus the Man has always been the neat freak among the 2 of us.  Hehe..

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetDecided to put the B-Sanitized™ product gifted by Our Lifestyle Shop to good use since I had the morning free while the Man went for a game of golf.

Using the B-Sanitized™:
There are 2 ways which you can use the B-Sanitized product either the Total Release Fogger method or just the manual spraying method.  The latter is a rather quick way of disinfecting your surfaces to clean and sanitize them.  It will certainly come in handy when we need to santize surfaces or some of her toys to keep it germ-free occasionally when Ben is here.

On the other hand, the Total Release Fogger, which does a proper job of sanitizing and disinfecting all surfaces of the entire room effectively needed a little more work and advance planning ahead.  So I decided to document the process if you are interested to find out who cleaning a room quickly can be done.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

First, turn off ALL ignition sources such as gas valves and open flames.  The last thing you really want when using this product is to cause an explosion in the home.  Cover exposed food, dishes and food handling equipment (if you are using it to sanitize your kitchen or living room).  Open cabinets and doors to area to be treated.  Shut off all fans and air conditioner and close all doors and windows.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetI laid newspapers in the centre of the room so that the particles from the can will not leave a stain on my wooden floors and for easy clean-up as well.  IMG_6103Point valve away opening from face and eyes when releasing.  It’s said that one unit of this can spray can be used for 6,000 cubic feet of unobstructed area.  Also, do not remain in the area during treatment and ventilate thoroughly before re-entry and using the room.  Here’s how it should look like when the valve/ mist is activated correctly.  I quickly snapped a pic and then closed the doors for it to work its magic in the room.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetOperating the valve did take us quite a while to figure it out, so I thought I will share with you a close-up shot of how to do this.  To lock the fogger valve for the Total Release Fogger method, you will need to press valve button all the way down and then hook in the catch.  You will know it’s activated when the mist is dispensed from the can continuously.

Hope the step-by-step guide for the Total Release Fogger helped you. I’m sure you also have other questions regarding the usage of this product so the folks over at Our Lifestyle Shop very kindly compiled a list of questions and answers regarding this that will put your mind to ease when using the product:

  1. How do I use B-Sanitized for the home?  The trigger on the aerosol has 2 settings. By fully depressing the trigger, it locks down and allows the canister to fully dispense and fog/fumigate all exposed surfaces in the room. It can also be use to disinfect surfaces if used as a spray.
  2. How long does it take? If using the Total Release Fogger method, the product will dispense fully in about 2 or 3 minutes and it’s highly recommended to leave the room empty for about 2 hours for this will allow all the fine mist droplets to dissipate and fall to the ground where they can no longer be inhaled. If using the spray method, then it will sanitize surfaces within 5 or 10 minutes.
  3. How effective is the product after I sprayed it? B-Sanitized is designed to remove any germs already present but it also leaves a fine residual antimicrobial coating which will last a few days.
  4. Where can I use it? Almost anywhere! B-Sanitized™ is ideal for classrooms, nurseries and offices.  In fact anywhere where people congregate.
  5. How often should I use it? This really depends on the environment you operate within. The more people passing through the place will increase the chances of new germs entering that environment.

Sponsored Review: B-Sanitized™

[Sponsored review] :

With the impending arrival of Bun, the home is buzzing with activity.  One of the things that we were pretty particular about is making sure that her space is uncluttered prior to her arrival.   I want the environment for her room to be as clean as possible and having the clutter only means more dirt and dust to worry about.  I got pretty serious with that so I spent several nights clearing up the wardrobe space, clearing out shelves and keeping the room neat in general.  The Man was actually amazed because I can be quite the procrastinator when it comes to packing plus I have a horrible habit of just stashing things (kinda like sweeping everything under the carpet and hope no one will find out).

I met up with Sulin from Our Lifestyle Shop recently.  It’s like she read my mind and knew my worries so she offered me the B Sanitized products for me to try out.  Honestly, when she first approached me with the offer to try out the B Sanitized products, I was rather hesitant.  Why?  Reason is pretty simple : I’m heavily pregnant so at this point, I didn’t really want to deal with items that require too much of a hassle to do the work.  But I also remembered how the KONK products worked well in my household and that was relatively fuss-free to operate, so I decided to put hesitation aside and give it a shot.

B-Sanitized™ (Made In USA):
B-Sanitized™ is the simple one-step solution for environmental protection against viral, bacterial fungal and mould contaminants.

EPA registered, B-Sanitized™ is an easy to use quick release fogger. When placed in the center of a room, B-Sanitized™ will effectively disinfect all surfaces, allowing the entire area to be fully disinfected and germ free.  Walls, floors, desks, keyboards, door handles and any other exposed surfaces are all sanitized at once.

The Total Release Fogger method:
I’ve been told by Sulin that I should use the Total Release Fogger method to give Bun’s room a proper sanitization so as to remove contamination to the greatest extent possible, destroy organisms and to minimize re-population.

The benefits for this method include:
– Lighter than air to sweep complete environment
– Helps prevent illness and spread of infections
– Fast, permanent results

Where is it suitable for?
– A long list of places but really ANYWHERE where germs exist!

Testing the B-Sanitized™:
I will be putting the B-Sanitized product using the Total Release Fogger method to the test during the next 2 weeks or so.  Bun is scheduled to arrive mid of June so the timing is about right to get her room sanitized first and then work on sanitizing the surfaces of the furniture closer to the due-date.  During this time,  I will try my best to share pictures and will also list down how best to maximise the benefits of the B-Sanitized product.
