Creating Your Clean Safe Haven


It was July 2020. We were 4 months into our diligent, safer-at-home practices when it happened.  Our air conditioner broke. In Florida. In summer! It was almost comical. We’d been very careful—not eating out, not going out, soaking produce, letting delivered packages sit for days on end downstairs (it became more superstition than anything) and disinfecting all the delivered groceries, twice-- but now, we’d have to break the barrier. We’d have to let someone, from out there, in here!  It would be a first, as we hadn’t ventured out since March 8th! But I was ready.

Thankfully, he had paper booties for his shoes, but pretty much touched everything with his bare hands on his way to and from the faulty unit which was located on the third floor, and at one point, even asked to use our bathroom!  

When everything was back in working order and I walked him out. I closed the door behind me and immediately jumped on the internet and began researching smarter, safer, pet, and kid friendly solutions for keeping my house clean during a pandemic. With the help of Home Depot, a trusted source to alleviate home safety concerns, here’s what I came up with:

"I was just always in trouble because I was always in recipe books and cookbooks when I was very little. I was very blessed to be able to go to culinary school and all of that later. … I was always in the kitchen just experimenting and seeing if things came out like the picture I was trying to mimic in the cookbook."

By Tyshia Ingram of ASE Beauty

At its core, the word holistic means interconnected. It’s the idea of looking at, dealing with, and approaching things as a whole rather than separate individual parts. Clean living is a holistic way of life. It’s not just about your beauty products, the makeup you wear and what hair products you use on wash day. It’s also about your diet, what you’re eating and what you’re feeding your mind. It’s how you’re taking care of your body, your exercise and fitness routines.

Everything is connected.
