We are spending a lot more time at home and there are ways to brighten our space, keep it healthier, with the help of lifestyle expert Kathryn Emery. Here are four tips to enhance your space with lighting and keep things healthy.
Update your light bulbs to lighting that mimics natural sunlight. SYLVANIA Natural Series LED bulbs with TruWave Technology, is the closest light bulb to the light the sun provides.
Emery loves LED lights because they save energy, are better for the environment and save you money -- but what most people don’t know is they use blue light to operate. Blue light actually suppresses melatonin and that affects our sleep and it also causes your eyes to strain when reading.
This new TruWave Technology minimizes blue light, so it helps you fall asleep and read easier. These bulbs also show off real colors and true tones. This is ideal for when we need clean light color - such as taking photos, putting on makeup, even just relaxing with family/friends - you are getting the closest light to pure sunlight. Bring in the light closest to sunshine, day and night, inside your home!
Emery suggests a great way to protect your home from germs is MicroGoldDisinfectant & Antimicrobial Spray. It is EPA certified to kill the COVID-19 virus in three minutes. That antimicrobial inhibitor means Covid 19 and other harmful bacteria and viruses, cannot grow on that surface once you've cleaned it.
Use it on all hard surfaces throughout your home – door knobs, remote controls, phones, counter tops, faucets, light switches, garbage cans throughout the bathroom, kitchen.
Kill Covid on surfaces throughout your home or business, with the antimicrobial benefit of actually inhibiting the growth of germs on these surfaces once you've cleaned with this alcohol/bleach free cleaner.

Another product for clean air, is Air Innovations Cool Mist Humidifier with Antimicrobial Inhibitor.
Keeping your home healthy is top-of-mind now more than ever. Something in our homes to consider is humidity levels. Raising indoor relative humidity levels to between 40 perfect and 60 percent can prevent germs.
Look for a humidifier manufacturer that uses an antimicrobial inhibitor that is infused into the tank and base, such as Air Innovations Clean Mist Humidifiers, which are infused with an antimicrobial inhibitor that helps prevent microbial growth on the surface of the tank and base, and have a permanent ceramic filter to trap other impurities. This means no gunk growing in the tank and low maintenance: the permanent ceramic filter is cleaned by just rinsing.
Finally, Emery suggest going touchless with your hand sanitizing! Think about the germs on your hands as you touch faucets or sanitizers to clean your hands. Sense & Dispense is a touchless, battery powered unit that comes with refillable alcohol based gel sanitizer, it is going to kill those germs (70% alcohol) but it is safe for frequent use, it’s not sticky, it doesn’t dry hands out and has a light scent that is pleasant and not over powering.
One refill bottle has 400 dispenses (last a few months), it is easy to change out, and the battery powered on/off makes it easy to travel with.
Every home, restaurant, business, school needs this. You can find it at Lowes.
