When you hear the words “home safety,” you probably think about alarm systems and cameras. While these tools are very important aspects of making your home a safe place, they are not the only parts of your security system.
Let’s get something straight: home safety is about not only keeping strangers and unwanted visitors out of your home but also keeping the people inside safe at all times.
Making Your Home a Safe One
How often do you think about safety in your kitchen, for example? There are many things in the kitchen that you use on a daily basis that can be of danger to you and your family members at any given time.
Knives in the Kitchen
If you are cooking, chances are using knives, and as we all know, they bring a risk with them whenever we use them. But cannot go without them. An easy way to avoid some of the risks of using knives while cooking is to add some smart tools to your kitchen cabinet.
RapidSlicer is a simple yet effective tool that will help you to safely slice small fruits and veggies like grapes, cherry tomatoes, and olives. This handy little tool features non-slip grips to keep it safe in place. It is BPA free, easy to clean, and has a lock-in-place lid, which makes it easy to store.
The best feature of this tool is its ease of use. It truly is a user-friendly kitchen tool and one step in the right direction to home safety.
Keeping along the lines of knife and kitchen safety, I found another handy product called Sink Safe, which I find to be a nice addition to the kitchen.
Why is the Sink Safe worthy of my kitchen? Picture this scenario: you have a sink full of dirty plates, and you stick your hands in to start cleaning them and find a knife or blade of some sort that you were not expecting.
The Sink Safe is a multi-use pouch that can stand alone in or outside of your sink that holds your knives and other small items to keep the kitchen area neat and, more importantly, safe. With the Sink Safe, I can easily soak my knives separately from the rest of the dirty dishes and pans, allowing me to have better control over the knives. I can also use it to keep the knives out of the reach of my son while I am cooking and separate them for handwashing, and it can be used to hold my sponges when not in use.
You may expect to be able to drink water safely from your tap anywhere in the US. But the reality is that’s not always the case. While we usually drink water from the fridge using a filter, this can be ineffective for some metals and other components you might find in your drinking water.
You probably don’t think much about this, if at all, but you and your family can develop serious health issues from consuming contaminated water.
Enviro Test Kits
Enviro Test Kits is a company that offers common people like you and me the opportunity to test their drinking water at home. With a variety of tests that will check your water for metals, inorganics, and other properties, this tool is the next level of home safety.
The kits could not be easier to use. Just take a sample and mail it to the company using the same box the kit arrived in. The company will test the water in a lab and send you the results via email or USPS. Easy-peasy peace of mind!
I love this product! The company offers different kits to test for one or multiple contaminants, and it even has a 24-hour DIY bacteria-in-water individual test. Prices start as low as $12.95 for the 24-hour DIY bacteria-in-water individual test.
Fires are also a big home safety issue, and I hope you have at least one or two fire extinguishers at home. We live in a two-story home and keep one fire extinguisher under the kitchen cabinet and a second one in the garage.
Here is my problem: we do not keep one on the second floor even though my husband has his office there and has all kinds of gadgets in his office (he’s a computer guy). It always makes me very uneasy.
The Mini Firefighter is the best way to be prepared in case of a fire in any room of your home. I never thought or heard of a personal fire extinguisher, but love the concept and portability of this fire extinguisher. Meant for small fires, the Mini Firefighter can help you put out four types of fire:
• Type A: wood, including paper, cardboard, fabric, and plastic
• Type B: flammable liquids and gases, including gasoline and diesel
• Type C: electrical
• Type D: cooking oils and grease
This compact fire extinguisher comes in an 8.45 oz. (250 ml) bottle that expands 40 times its size and can be conveniently stored pretty much anywhere without talking up virtually any space. Store it in your car, RV, office, any room in your home, kitchen cabinet, and more.
I love, love, love this product and really like the fact that I can avoid a major fire by having one of these little bottles at hand.
Available in one, two, or four packs, the price of the Mini Firefighter starts at only $25.00
