Mr Thick and I, we are not germophobes. In fact, he has been known to pick up food (two-second rule) that Aidan has dropped onto the table and shove it into his kid’s mouth. And we let our kid roll and crawl around whenever the desire so strikes, even if we happen to be outdoors.
But when it comes to a newborn, we are very, very strict about sanitising our environment and selves. When Aidan was born, we kept a bottle of hand sanitiser in our diaper caddy so that we could have easy access to it whenever we change his diapers. We also washed our hands religiously and used Dettol wipes to clean the surfaces that baby may have contact with.
It sounds militant but after seeing my friend’s baby girl warded for a cold-turned-pneumonia in her third week, we were thankful to have been so diligent.
Thankfully with parenting experience behind us, we are now armed with an arsenal of hygiene products. A caddy containing brand new bottles of hand soap and moisturiser sits in our toilet, we have pocket-sized bottles of hand sanitiser stashed in the cupboards, and a full-sized bottle now sits in the diaper caddy – all ready for Two’s arrival.
The only thing lacking is something that could clean the surfaces in our house, and this is where I am so thankful for Our Lifestyle Shop. Su Lin, knowing that Two will be joining us soon, asked if I would like to review two bottles of B-Sanitized and I said YES!
In a nutshell, B-Sanitized offers protection against viral, bacterial fungal and mould contaminants. According to Su Lin, it’s easy peasy to use: simply place the canister in the middle of the room, use the Total Release Fogger method, leave the door closed and come back in two hours’ time to a fully disinfected and germ-free room.
Okay. Sounds easy enough.
The first room that I am going to try it on? Our bathroom. While I used to wipe down the surfaces and door handles with Dettol wipes previously, I haven’t been doing so recently (I know, gross). And then we will move on to the kitchen.
And since I am finally on maternity leave, I will have plenty of time to sanitise the house slowly, room by room. Watch this space as I try out this new product!
