CLEANING SURFACES AND CLOTHES

Clean your bathroom, light switch plates, and kitchen counter tops with a mixture of one of the stronger bleaches (see hyperlink) and water: l pt. bleach to 9 pts. water. Wash your towels and sheets in hot water and bleach; also your under pants if you wish. Buy white towels, sheets, and underwear to prevent ruining them. (I ruined many lovely towels and sheets.) You can use the bleach mixture on any other service that comes in touch with feces.

Re: Hygiene Tips cleaning nails

From Skippy,

Hello. I am brand new to this site, but feel I can offer a good tip for nail hygiene. My Mom is a retired LPN who worked solely in geriatric long-term care. I worked as a CNA in geriatric care for a few years and found this tip to be a blessing. Put a denture tablet in a small basin of warm water, soak hands for a few moments, dry hands, and use a disposable orange-stick to clean under nails. It works amazingly well!. Good luck to you and your mother during her recovery.

Towels

For easier disinfection, buy white towels. Bleach and hot water won't ruin them. Costco has some at a good price.
