How To Wear the Right Mask For You

The World Health Organization recommends the use of face masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) not only in health care, but in your community and when interacting with public surfaces. PPE is not only necessary to protect yourself, but others as well. The incubation period of COVID-19 is said to last about 14 days, meaning those infected are at risk of unknowingly spreading the virus to others even if they’re not showing symptoms yet.

That’s why it’s so important to take the proper precautions and make sure your face is appropriately covered. We’ve been working around the clock with various manufacturers to secure as many masks as we can so that you have the right protection. Let’s go over some Do’s and Don’ts for wearing masks safely.

1. Before You Do Anything – Make sure your hands are scrubbed clean with soap or sanitizer for at least 20 seconds.

2. Inspect the Mask – With clean hands, inspect the mask to ensure it is free of any tears or holes and hasn’t been used or damp.

3. Locate the Top – The top of the mask should have a metal piece or a stiff edge for securing to your nose.

4. Cover Your Face – Point the colored side outwards and use the elastic loops to wrap them around your ears, covering your mouth, nose, and chin. Remember to press the metal piece down over your nose and make sure there are no gaps.

5. Avoid Touching the Mask – Do not touch the front of the mask or remove it when talking to someone or doing something that would require touching the mask. If you have to adjust the mask, remove it from behind the ears and head, keeping it away from yourself and other surfaces.

6. Proper Disposal – Discard disposable masks immediately, preferably in a closed trash bin and wash your hands once again.

Now that we’ve gone over some safety advice, you’re ready to start wearing your mask. Below you can find the latest protective wear we have available. Make sure the rest of your family understands proper procedure and if you follow these steps then we will make it through this uncertain time together!

Arctic Cove Cooling Towel is a great makeshift face mask in a pinch.
Super cool, super comfortable.

The Arctic Cove Multi-Wrap w/ Cooling Technology – This personal cooling towel works great as a mask replacement.  It’s much lighter and less constricting than a traditional mask and it’s reusable – so you only need one of these versus package after package of face masks. This is a great option to keep on you at all times and you’ll love all the innovative ways you can wear it while it keeps you cool.   

The Chilly Ice Towel Keeps you Safe and Cool!
My personal favorite.

Chilly Ice Towel – Like the Arctic Cove Wrap, but even bigger! The Chilly Ice Towel not only works great as a makeshift face mask but it has some amazing cooling properties that make it a must have in hot weather. Just submerge it in some water, wring it out, and give it a few shakes…within minutes it downright feels ICY-COLD and lasts for hours. Seriously, it’s like you have AC around your head and face, great for treating a fever or headache at home.

Our newest Staying at Home department has a few items to pass the time, stay healthy, and safe.

Many of us without a daily commute now find there’s so much more free time! And it’s not like we can all go bowling, fancy restaurants or even the local watering hole. It’s best to keep busy, so here are a few things we can do:

How to Make Homemade Sanitizer Wipes

How to Make Sanitizer Wipes
Visit our website for the how-to video!

A handy trick we’ve just learned is to take some hand sanitizer and create your very own DIY sanitizer wipes in just a few short steps! With Coronavirus (Covid-19) and quarantine/stay-at-home measures in place, it’s essential to sanitize your workspaces and homes.

We have been getting MANY calls from customers asking if our Purifize Hand Cleaner can disinfect surfaces. The short answer is absolutely YES. Because Purifize is 70% alcohol, it exceeds CDC minimum standards. You can certainly pour a bunch in your hands and then wipe it on whatever you want to sanitize – but that’s kinda weird isn’t it?

Here’s how to make your own wipes (Watch the How-To Video on Our Site):

  1. Cut paper towel roll to size for storing in a resealable container. Maybe you have an old container for sanitizer wipes that ran out – or you could use a big Ziplock bag.
  2. Put inside the container and pour enough Purifize to saturate the paper towels inside. Purifize isn’t as thick as some other goopy hand sanitizers like Purell, so it works a little easier to pour in.
  3. Keep sealed up until ready to use.

Use these wipes for those infrequent trips to the store (wipe down cart handles) gas pump handles, and doorknobs. Keep some in the glovebox or on your desk to remind you to keep clean!

Used in combination with frequent hand-washing with good quality soap, proper filtration masks, and social distancing – you’ll stay as safe as you can be.

Now we want to point out that due to its high alcohol content, it can be used safely on glass and plastic surfaces. We do not recommend it be used on wood as the alcohol disinfectant might strip the wood surface and polish (you can always test a small portion first and see how it goes from there).

Thanks again to our customers for such positive feedback in these trying times right now. We’re happy to be able to supply not only our customers, but first responders, hospitals, and other friends and families that need it.

We’re all in this together, – so hang in there!

Get Ready to Do-It-Yourself

Wonder Roller… Just Fill ‘n Paint – Instead of filling a rolling pan up with paint and repeatedly loading and rolling, loading and rolling,

24 Piece Offset Ratchet Bit Driver and Socket Set – This compact and portable set gives you enough variety to do the job when you don’t have the ability to carry a full set of tools. The stubby ratchet is equipped with 12 bits and 9 sockets in a variety of standard sizes and types for small repairs, automotive, hobby or general household use. This can really become your favorite compact tool kit!

Hefty Haulers Furniture Moving Kit –  It lets you move heavy items easily and safely all by yourself. The secret is in the leverage, so no need to wait for someone else to give you a hand when all you need is good ol’ fashioned physics.  Lift up to 2600 pounds using the miniature hand jack, then slip the furniture sliders underneath each corner of the item you want to move. Then just give the sofa, fridge, wardrobe, or other furniture a little push and watch it roll away. Whether you’re rearranging the room for some feng shui, or tidying up seldom-cleaned areas in your home – you’ll love using these!

It features a live-feed camera at the end of a flexible, 4ft. cord that streams footage directly to the handle-mounted LCD screen. This allows you to see deep into drains, behind heavy furniture, inside walls, beneath doors and more! There’s even an LED light circling the camera lens facing out so it illuminates what the camera sees. Whether you’ve lost an expensive ring down the sink or are trying to find what’s behind your drywall, the Lizard Cam is the right tool for the job.

Important Tips For Working From Home

homeworkSince the coronavirus outbreak, working from home has become the norm for some. It can also be quite a challenge if you haven’t done it before. It can be tough to stay focused with all of the distractions of home right around you, plus feeling disconnected can get to you, too.

At the time of writing this we still have people coming into the office but we have deemed that “At-Risk” employees should be working from home.

Here are a few things you can do to try to effectively work from home.

1. Ditch The PJs – First, get changed out of your pajamas every morning. It’ll help get you in the right headspace for work and allow you to take video calls on the fly.

2. Workspace(s) – Pick one or more dedicated workspaces, ideally with a decent chair that will support your back.

3. Mornings – Wake up more than five minutes before your workday starts. You need time to prepare for the day, both mentally and physically.

4. Shoes – Sounds strange, but try wearing shoes, because let’s be real: You probably wouldn’t be chilling barefoot in an office.

5. Music/TV Softly – Listen to music or put the TV on quietly, since working from home can sometimes be a little too quiet, which makes it difficult to focus.

6. Lunch Breaks – Take a lunch break like you would normally do at work.

7. Regular Breaks – Take breaks so you don’t burn out. Stand up and stretch your legs!

8. Socialize – Be sure to socialize after work, even if it’s just a video call, to keep the loneliness at bay.

9. Household Chores a No-No – Don’t do household chores randomly throughout the day, since it can get distracting. Instead, schedule a specific time for them.

10. “I’m Working!” – Make sure the people you live with understand you’re working and to keep quiet when you’re on the phone.

11. Headphones – Use headphones and mute your microphone during conference calls (unless you’re speaking) to minimize the amount of audio feedback and times that random sounds interrupt the conversation.

12. Team Contact – Be in regular contact with your team, in part to make sure that you’re actually working from home.

13. Fresh Air – Go outside! Even if it’s just a quick walk or stretch, the fresh air will do wonders.

14. Stay Active – Finally, stay active. If you can’t go to an fitness class or to the gym, there are plenty of effective workouts you can do at home. YouTube them.
