Disinfect and protect yourself from getting sick with these essentials

From the changes in weather to the COVID-19 virus, there are many factors that could make you sick right now. Over the past two years, we have mastered practices to avoid catching a disease but as COVID-19 cases continue to rise and more contagious variants emerge, it won’t hurt to remind ourselves again of these safety precautions. Here’s a quick refresher along with several essentials you need to cop to stay disease-free.



Always wear a face mask


Unlike face shields, you still can’t go outdoors without a face mask. Due to new COVID-19 variants, people are upgrading their face masks to highly protective ones like the KF94.

According to an Infectious Diseases Society of America specialist, spokesperson, and epidemiologist, the “KF” in KF94 stands for “Korean filter” while the “94” indicates a 94 percent filtration efficacy. This protective mask is the South Korean equivalent of the N95 mask, and for only P79, you can get it in a pack of 10 from Surplus Shop via the SM Malls Online app.


Disinfect with alcohol


According to the CDC, “Handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick.” Hand sanitizers or disinfectants with at least 60% alcohol are recommended to prevent the spread of germs, and they must be used before and after touching anything and entering and leaving a public place.

That’s why you should keep a bottle of Guardian 70% Isopropyl Alcohol 500mL in your bag all the time. Get it in a bundle of two for only P170 from Surplus Shop. You can also try the Hygienix Alcohol with Moisturizer 500mL, which is also powered by vitamin E to protect your skin from dryness. It is available in Watsons for only P84.

For phone and surface disinfection, you can also use the HealMed Alcohol Disinfecting Wipes (70% Alcohol). Each pack comes with 35 sheets, and you can get it in a bundle of three for only P100 at Surplus Shop. Check out the SM Malls Online app now to cop these products.
