If you don’t have it already, you need to set up a COVID-19 Family Quarantine Kit next to your front door. Ours contains hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, disinfectant spray, alcohol spray, and antibacterial wipes. Below are some products from Black-owned businesses (and they have them in-stock) to help you be prepared for the peak of the first and start of the second wave of the novel coronavirus.
HOMEMADE DISINFECTANT WIPES
Once you purchase your surface cleaner from a Black-owned business, you can make these DIY wipes in an empty wipes or coffee container with paper towels. We did it and found that sturdy blue shop towels work best or use Handiwipes™. You can also add a bleach and water (1 part bleach to 3 parts water) solution to unscented baby wipes.

Can’t find hand-sanitizer to protect your family? There are Black-owned companies that have your back. Chek out Black Momma Hand Sanitizer ($14). This entrepreneur operates a Vodka distillery and pivoted to fill a need once the pandemic hit.
Can’t find Lysol™ Surface Spray, SELFE has got you covered with their all-natural Antibacterial Surface Mist ($8).
As cities loosen quarantine restrictions, it is the perfect size to take with you to public places .
Hairizon Sanitizer On Surface ($17) has an 18oz. bottle of disinfectant. It comes in various sizes and you can put in a spray bottle to clean.
