Framed

If you have some type of infectious microorganism in your home, you probably already know you have to clean everything in your home that you want to keep.

Framed mirrors and pictures are no exception. I like to use lemon oil on wood, and of course ammonia is wonderful for cleaning the glass on framed pictures. Menthol crystals are another tool for protecting items that have a cavity or other place where you could sprinkle them.

Safely Social, Part 1

How do I avoid transmitting this disease to others without giving up a social life? Obviously compromises are in order. Here are the ones I have made, and they seem to be working for me because I have been sick with this disease for a while with no known transmission to others:

Social Life

There is no reason to forego a social life. What I do is graciously accept invitations to people’s homes (but never invite them to mine no matter how many times I have to change the subject) and then simply do not go. That is easier than declining while everyone is looking at me. Right! Instead, I meet people in public places that I know are vacuumed or mopped daily or more often in some cases.

I did stop attending a bible study because everyone hugged, all the time. Had I at the outset indicated that I preferred not to be hugged, it would have been accepted, but I did not want to explain why I was suddenly saying that after hugging freely for a couple of years. Simply simpler. I miss that group, they were wonderful, and of course I miss the hugs, but I am not short of friends or social life, I just have to have it on slightly different terms.

I did also choose to stop attending a church with upholstered bench seats. Fortunately it was not a church I had attended long and I realize that choice would be much more difficult for many of you. Instead, I found a small church with folding metal chairs. I can dash in discreetly after the service and swipe the one I used with a disinfecting cloth and no one is the wiser. If someone comes in, I’m there to pray, right?

Check back tomorrow for more on protecting others through simple preventive measures.

Warm and Fuzzy

Your unwanted pets love to wait for you in the fibers of your carpet, curtains, and upholstered furniture. Make sure you treat all of these thoroughly with a combination borate and insect growth regulator. Use an organic knockdown of your choosing to prevent biting while you treat your favorite recliner (you might want to get something comfy but easier to clean!), those wonderful sound-absorbing, insulating draperies in your bedroom, or you might just want to ditch it all and save yourself the maintenance.
