Lysol and Whole Mom PH Conduct Workshop Series for MaxiMoms, Launch Lysol Disinfectant Maxi Cover Mist

Women power happens when ladies come together and unselfishly share what they know so they can help others. I am glad to have joined a recent workshop at La Creperie Makati conducted by Lysol and Whole Mom PH where guests were treated to talks on home care and self-care by Marilen Faustino Montenegro, Cheska Garcia-Kramer, and Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio.

Here's some of the nuggets of wisdom shared by the three lovely ladies …

Marilen gave tips to Organizing One's Living Room. She gave three pointers that should be easy to remember:

1. Use trays to organize little objects like TV remote controls, small decor, and other living room essentials. Find attractive ones that can help tell a visual story.
2. Invest in decorative baskets that can help hide messy things like toys or keep essentials like living room blankets for those cold days when you just want to curl up on the sofa while reading a book or watching TV.
3. Clean as you go. Put things away as soon as you are done using them and remind family members to be tidy at all times.

Cheska, a self-confessed OC (obsessive-compulsive) when it comes to cleanliness, pointed out that nothing is more enjoyable than coming home to a clean and organized house that exudes peace and tranquility. She believes, "Happiness is cleanliness -- a happy home is a clean home."  

The mom of three maintained that cleanliness is an acquired habit, something that a person does in a regular, repeated way. Here's her 3-Step Process to Form Cleanliness Habits at Home:

1. Set reminders with cleaning instructions. Print them and post behind the sink/lavatory, cabinet doors in every toilets and bathrooms of the house.
2. Start with something easy and make sure to provide materials needed to, for example, clean and disinfect the T/B under the sink and lavatory cabinets.
3. Reward yourself or your family members for keeping up a good habit

Cheska demonstrates how easy it is to organize cleaning materials
More of Cheska's tips:

  • Organize your cleaning materials in a pail and place it in its designated location (e.g. in the bathroom or under the kitchen sink). Place your reminder to clean the room every day on an inconspicuous spot in the T/B.   
  • Check the pail if it has the necessary products such as disinfectant spray for the lavatory and mirror, toilet bowl cleaner, rag, utility sponge, tile brush, and a mop to go along.
  • Keep a task chart to keep an eye on daily accomplishments.
  • Post printed reminders.
  • Sanitize the kitchen after every daily use. Keep a mop in a pail of water filled with disinfectant and placed in a safe corner.   
  • Keep the living room clean by mopping the whole house 3x a day because nothing else can compensate once your health becomes compromised.

Rica, on the other hand, talked about Keeping a Clean Heart. She began with the Bible verse from Proverbs 4:24, "Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flows the springs of life." She then shared three things to keep in mind when taking care of one's heart. 

1. What we put in our hearts. Be mindful of what goes in. As Luke 6:45, ESV, says, "The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good; and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil; for our of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks."
2. What we release from our hearts. These should include: encouragement, confessions, forgiveness, and apology.
3. What we keep in our hearts. Like it says in Proverbs 19:11, "Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense." 

Lysol's new variants
In line with the topic of organizing and cleanliness, Lysol launched its Disinfectant Max Cover Mist designed to cover and disinfect larger soft surfaces to keep them fresh. The wide-angle spray provides 2x wider coverage for surfaces like a king-size mattress or sofa. It sprays an ultra fine Micro Mist that uniformly reaches nooks, crannies, and crevices with no over-wetting.

The new Lysol retains its trusted formula that kills 99.9% of bacteria while eliminating odors to leave behind unbeatable protection and a surprisingly fresh scent. Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist is available in two fragrances: Garden After Rain and Lavender Field. Each 15 oz. (425g) can has an SRP of P411.00 and is primarily available in supermarkets, hypermarkets, club stores, groceries, and drugstore chains.
