The third prep challenge in December is to buy liquid dish soap and hand soap for your home storage. We saw liquid hand soap disappear during the pandemic because people were washing their hands more. Perhaps buy a year’s supply of these items to be prepared in case that happens again. Or if your storage space is limited, buy large refills. And hand soap with a Christmas label will go on clearance the day after Christmas! You can always transfer that liquid into your own bottles.
Buy Liquid Dish Soap and Hand Soap
First, check your inventory of these supplies and decide how many bottles you need. It’s amazing how far a large bottle of liquid dish soap goes. If the power goes out and you can’t use your dishwasher, at least you can wash dishes by hand.

Add Items to Your 72-Hour Kit
Here are the last few items to add to your 72-hour kit this year so you will look beautiful during tough times.
- Extra pair of glasses

- Hair elastics
Yep, that’s it! Buy liquid dish soap, hand soap, lotion and lip balm, and add a few items to your 72-hour kit. There’s nothing to work on during the week of Christmas.
Merry Christmas and stay healthy!
