Stock Up On Sanitation Supplies • April Prep Challenge #3

Our third prep challenge in April is to stock up on sanitation and hygiene supplies, and add some of them to our 72-hour kits. Didn’t our pandemic experience teach us the importance of stocking up on these supplies? Well, don’t stop that habit. These items are perfect for everyday use and disaster us. Be reasonable in the amounts you buy. I like to keep a 3-month supply of most of these items, but you could certainly gather more or less depending on your finances and home storage space. For instance, you might buy a 6-month supply of trash bags and only a one-month supply of diapers.

Stock Up On Sanitation Supplies • April Prep Challenge #3

1. Buy Home Sanitation Supplies

If you purchase these items on sale regularly, you can build up a good supply in your home. Look for sales at grocery and drug stores, Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club, Costco and online. Here are a few suggestions, but you could certainly think or more.

  • toilet paper
  • diapers and wipes or cleansing wipes
  • feminine or incontinent items
  • trash bags

2. Add Sanitation Supplies to 72-Hour Kit

Add some of these items to your 72-hour kit. Mothers should keep a well-stocked diaper bag as this could suddenly become your infants 72-hour kit.

  • copy of prescriptions
  • toilet paper
  • diapers and wipes or cleansing wipes
  • feminine or incontinent items (3 days)
  • trash bags (2)

Add some of these supplies to your grocery list and stock up on sanitation and hygiene supplies in April or over the next 30 days. As you learn what a 3-month supply is for your family, keep it stocked throughout the year. You’re doing great!

Best wishes and stay healthy,
