One of moms' greatest fears seeing her family sick. That is why it's understandable for other moms to be OC when it comes to household cleanliness.
Today, I learned about Mysophobia which is the fear of contamination and germs. And for someone who grew up in a small town who was too exposed to dirt and germs, I can 100% say that I don't have this kind of fear.
Do you think you have this fear? According to GoodTherapy.org, here are the signs that you have a fear of germs:
-Compulsive hand washing
-Excessive use of disinfectants and antibacterial soap
-Fear of physical contact with others
-Extreme fear of getting sick
-Reacting with extreme fear to media reports of new diseases
-Fear of certain locations, such as doctor’s offices and airplanes, where germs or sick people might be present or confined
It doesn't seem worrisome, right? However, if mysophobia cannot be controlled, it can lead to depression, social isolation, and anxiety. The good news is this can be treatable by a few sessions with a mental health professional.
I'm talking about this because, almost two weeks ago, I learned about the different kinds of germs through the event that we had with PowerClean chemicals. As we all know, there are germs that can be seen by our naked eyes and there are those that we can't. So it's important to not just clean but also disinfect.

Powerclean Products Review
Thanks to Powerclean, we were given freebies so we can personally try them out. here are my two cents on the products that we received and tried.
Wave Supreme Detergent Powder - this was the first product that we were able to try. This product works almost like the brand that we are currently using. In fact, even the texture is almost the same. If there's one thing that makes this better than the product we use at home, it is the fact that this product is a lot cheaper.
Powerclean liquid bleach - I have used this product for removing stains. Just like other bleach that we have tried, Powerclean liquid bleach helps remove stains. The smell of the solution reminds me of the clorox my mother was using when we were still young (the one sold at the stores in small packs for 1 peso each). It surely smelled like it and the smell can stay longer on the skin.
Powerclean liquid hand soap - I like how this product smells on my skin. Even though I can't say the smell is long lasting, however, it did not dry my hands after application.
