    Confession time, I was caught behind the curve with face mask and hand sanitizer. Even though I have a case of N95 mask, I quickly realized they will not last for long. Maybe this is a topic for another thread, but I feel cloth face mask with a filer is the way to go. N95 mask have a habit...

    When I first started with cleaning hands back in March they were cracked and bleeding. Now I wear glove most of the time and only clean when the gloves are off. Hands are much better.

One of the employees usually worked at another liquor store, and he told me the other store was almost out of Everclear. He also told me people had...

    It'll clean your hands, saving water, and it makes a great fire starter. Purell is 62% alcohol and burns very well.

    Some hand sanitizers marketed to the public as effective on 99.9% of germs actually increased the germ count on peoples hands. http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/EID/vol12no03/05-0955.htm If you are stocking up on hand sanitizers - Using tap water with no soap is almost useless on removing germs...
