Personal and General Hygiene Products in the Home Survival Kit.
Sanitation and general hygiene in any emergency or disaster situation is very important. Living in crowded areas increases the risk of spreading the disease. Careful personal hygiene, as far as possible, will help reduce this danger. Lack of central water supply, contaminated or contaminated water, accumulation of household garbage, dangerous microorganisms that multiply therefrom at a tremendous speed, etc. All this contributes to the emergence and spread of various infections..
In multi-apartment buildings, the lack of water can literally within several days, especially in the hot season, create the danger of the spread of infectious diseases, primarily through the sewage system, and personal hygiene will suffer due to lack of water. Creating stocks of personal and public hygiene products in the home survival kit is not particularly difficult, you simply increase the stocks of existing ones that you trust and are used to using all the time. This will save you from many troubles..
It’s not worth it to particularly complicate yourself with accurate calculations of the amount of stocks of hygiene products in your home survival kit, since they all have long shelf life and in any case will be used by you sooner or later. Just create a sufficient supply in your opinion in the home survival kit of the following personal and general hygiene products.
Toothpaste and soap.
Detergents and disinfectants.
Toilet paper, wet and dry wipes.
and so on.
Some recommendations for personal and public hygiene during an emergency, disaster and disaster.
Putting aside banal tips such as wash your hands after the toilet and before eating, I want to pay attention to the following points, which will be especially relevant for residents of apartment buildings.
Body Wash, Shave and Dental Care.
1. If the centralized water supply in the apartment does not work and you cannot wash or take a daily shower do not worry. You will quickly get used to the smell of not washed body, and festive feasts and ceremonial receptions in a crisis situation will be rare.
2. Patience until the nearest rain or hike to the nearest body of water. If there is no rain for a long time, and all ponds are very far away or it is dangerous to go to them, then use a damp cloth or wet sanitary napkins. In the most extreme case, wipe the armpits, inguinal area and feet daily with cotton soaked in alcohol-containing liquid..
3. Chewing gum to some extent can provide chewing gum. An antiseptic cream or a solution of chlorhexidine bigluconate water 0.05% of your home kit will completely replace a cream or aftershave.
Washing clothes and linen.
1. For reasons of economy, do not waste your emergency water supplies on washing clothes. Regularly, be sure to change and wash only underwear.
The economical way to wash underwear.
Preheat 1-1.5 liters of water and pour it into a 30-35 liter plastic bag for rubbish.
Add the same washing powder, it is better for automatic washing machines, it foams less and therefore it will be necessary to rinse less then.
Put things in the bag, seal it and depicting the operation of the washing machine, turn it over and crush it with your hands for 5-10 minutes.
Drain dirty water and rinse things in the same, or a new garbage bag, pour 1-2 liters of clean water.
2. If there is no washing powder, or it is not enough, then any detergent for dishes can be used instead, they wash things almost the same.
Body waste products and kitchen waste.
How easy is it with the disposal of kitchen waste and vital products of the human body in living conditions in a private house, for example in a rural area, so everything will be difficult in a city apartment with a multi-storey building.
The easiest and most effective way to solve this problem is to make sure that there is no kitchen waste at all, or they would be very minimal. For example, do not peel potatoes, but boil them in a peel, do not discard the top leaves of cabbage, but wash, cut smaller and eat, etc. etc. The rest of the waste: cans, plastic and plastic packaging, etc., if there are no plans for their further use, and there is no way to throw them in the house garbage cans, ideally it should be burnt or buried. If there is no such possibility, it remains only to store them until better times somewhere in the far corner of the balcony, and always in sealed packaging.
Human body products.
Disposal of these products, in conditions of non-working and clogged sewers, will be probably the biggest problem. First of all, let’s dwell on the question of collecting them, because you don’t just go down the toilet. To some extent, in a city apartment, the use of portable dry closets (compost toilet) or chemical toilets will help to rectify the situation. If there are none, then you can use the following version of the management of natural needs (urination, bowel movements and antiperistalsis).
A garbage bag with a volume of 30-35 liters is invested in a similar one. You can use one package, but it is better to be safe.
Already a double packet is placed inside the toilet, and its edges are fixed around the perimeter of the toilet with pieces of adhesive tape or tape.
Man fulfills his natural needs in this double package.
Bags are removed, sealed and disposed of in the same way as kitchen waste.
If you manage to suppress a sense of disgust, then in order to save garbage bags, you can go to the same bookmark on the toilet for several people in turn. After the toilet, again in order to save money and if there is a sufficient amount of technical water, you can not use toilet paper, but wash yourself.
Pets, in an emergency, can very often become infected with diseases that are then transmitted to humans. If you have to deal with any animal, it is very advisable to ensure that there is no damage to the skin of the hands, since the infection can penetrate through the slightest scratch, or wear gloves immediately.
