If you haven’t noticed, over the past couple weeks it seems the world has flipped into a state of frenzy and panic. While we are in FULL agreeance of taking proper measures to prevent and protect, we also believe the panic mode button should be the last thing hit. We wanted to break down our home remedies, favorite products, must have low-waste products, and our own personal truths, if effort to make the scare a little less scary and a little more effective/efficient.
We’ve also provided multiple links incase something has sold out, different price points, and ultimately providing the best option for you!
We see it extremely important and effective to invest in reusable products as (just as every grocery store has proven to empty of toilet paper and paper towels) which decreases waste as well as fear of running out.
We’ll first provide the master list and as you scroll you’ll find all the DIY projects that the items listed will be used for…
Please note that there are other humans on the planet that need these items too. Just because you buy enough for your family doesn’t mean the virus won’t spread, if it spreads we’ll be stuck longer. So buy consciously and think of others.
It’s about time America caught up on quite possibly the most sanitary bathroom practice. Instead of using copious amounts of toilet paper give your booty (and it’s neighbor) the attention it really needs by WASHING. I little squirt here and a little squirt there will equal big results when it comes to saving toilet paper and money.
REUSABLE SANDWICH BAG These can be used in sooo many ways but how we are using them is Home Made Disinfectant Wipes.
Common sense says this will get you through months by using and washing vs using regular paper towels and disposing. Also if a nation-wide shutdown happens where are you going to put all your trash?
This limits touching plastic bags when going to the store

Perhaps the most potent oil around Oil of Oregano has a trail of benefits when taken daily. Listed but not limited to… Anti-viral: fighting against cold/flu especially effective against respiratory viruses. Also a natural antibiotic, gut health support, powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, prevents yeast infections, the list goes on!
We’ve honestly been baffled that the stores are sold out of pasta yet still have shelves full of Apple Cider Vinegar. This seemingly under the radar product has been our cure all for yeeeaaars.
We make ACV tea (recipe here) and drink every hour on the hour when sick or take ACV shots daily to promote a healthy immune system.
For us personally it has cured Strep throat in 4 days flat, and any oncoming cold is killed just the same.
