The COVID-19 pandemic has presented immense challenges to industries around the world. With mobility restrictions in place, business owners had to rethink their operations and adjust to navigate the uncertainties in the new normal. Although some companies were able to adapt and seamlessly shift to the new norm, the process was not easy with many struggling with financial losses and temporary business closures. A survey from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) released September last year reported that the Philippine economy experienced the worst impacts of the pandemic.

Create your sanitation station with SM HOME


With most of us now going out for work, it is important for every home to have a sanitation station at the door to get everyone into disinfecting and sanitizing before they enter their own home. The station will also keep our homes clean and safe to prevent the spread of the illness and other unknown viruses with essentials for intense washing, dusting, sanitizing and disinfecting on most touch-infected areas or common surfaces in your home such as doorknobs, handles, light switches, gadgets and tabletops.             
            
SM Home, the one-stop shop for all of your home essentials, has a wide variety of household items for all your sanitizing needs. Here is the SM Home’s DIY Sanitation Station Guide to keep your home safe and disinfected:
  1. Set up a table and a mobile trolley near the door entrance. Put all the sanitizing essentials on the trolley and organize them in storage trays.
  2. Have a fill of sprayers with alcohol and disinfectants. Choose an EPA-registered disinfectant, a 70% Isopropyl Alcohol and a contactless soap dispenser as you disinfect and wash your hands.
  3. Have a waste bin to properly dispose used masks and gloves. 
  4. Put a shoe rack and a disinfecting mat outside. Have a foot bath on the disinfecting mat before putting the shoes on the rack. Always keep the mat clean before and after using the mat.
  5. If needed, set-up a makeshift changing room with curtain and ready a laundry basket for changing.
  6. Sterilize the area with UV light. Use pocket UV Sterilizer in sanitizing your gadgets, keys, wallet, and doorknobs. Do not forget to keep your Sanitation Station clean.
