When a disaster or emergency strikes, it is important to have the necessary sanitation & personal items on hand to prevent you from getting sick. Especially if you have limited resources available. The truth is, most illnesses can be avoided with good hygiene. To help others prepare, even more, we are going to discuss what you need to have with your emergency supplies that’ll help prevent sickness and contamination with everyone in your household.

Necessary Sanitation Supplies

Latex-free gloves - having a stash of gloves can come in handy in various circumstances – medical, sanitation, cooking, etc.

You can store it by using any type of water preserver or filter. When building up your water storage, take into consideration that you’ll need extra water for cleaning your body and other items. When it comes to sanitation with disposing of waste, make sure to use bags that are double bagged and sealable. Always have a designated area where waste is disposed and hand sanitizer readily available after handling.

This will save space and last you 3 – 5 days.
