Winter, when the temperature drops and the dryness increases, is the time when infectious diseases such as influenza are likely to spread. There are concerns about a double epidemic with the new coronavirus this year, so I would like to take more careful measures than usual.
Even with our 100-yen shop, the impression is that the lineup of antibacterial and sterilizing items has increased sharply this year. Therefore, this time, I picked up Hundred yen store goods that are useful for measures against "contact infection" (all prices are 100 yen excluding tax).
■ No-touch hook
Metal hooks that can be used as a substitute for fingers in places where you do not want to touch them directly, such as doorknobs, straps, elevators, and ATMs. The shape makes it easy to catch your finger and apply force, and the tip has a silicon cover so you can operate the touch panel. Comes with a key chain ring that is easy to carry.
■ Just paste! Antibacterial block sheet
A film sheet containing "copper" that has the effect of suppressing the activity of attached bacteria and viruses. According to the product information, the antibacterial rate is 99.9% or more, and you can save the trouble of frequent sterilization by attaching it to doorknobs, handrails, power switches, etc. As it is a semi-transparent sticker type, it can be easily peeled off and reattached. Contains one origami-sized (15 x 15 cm) sheet.
■ Alcohol-compatible spray bottle
In the lineup of portable spray bottles, products that can be carried with alcohol-type disinfectants have appeared. Mini-sized disinfectant sprays are also sold at Hundred yen store, but it is recommended for people who want to subdivide the products they usually use. Made of lightweight polyethylene, it is convenient for disinfecting personal belongings when going out, in the office, or traveling.
Pathogens such as viruses and bacteria are invisible to the eye, so it is possible that they may be unknowingly touched and brought into the home. If you have a lot of opportunities to go out this winter, why not check it out now?
