“Don’t be so heavenly minded that you are of no earthly use,” said President Kimball to a young missionary. I have always pondered if heavenly and earthly things are mutually exclusive.
“Cleanliness is next to godliness.” In heaven I’m sure this is true. But here?
Actually, cleanliness is next to impossible when public services break down after a disaster. Billions of people today are living in horribly unsanitary conditions because their public services are a disaster. This simple fact greets first time foreign travelers and quickly takes some of the excitement out of their adventure. Some never regain interest in travel unless they discover modern products to keep clean.
Waterless sanitizing hand gel is one such product. Concentrates for clothes washing may need Clorox to sanitize the water. You may want bottled water to use with soaps and shampoos. These clean the outside.
What about the inside? What you eat and drink may really mess you up – unless you know the travelers secret. “Listerine kills millions of germs on contact.” Two swallows will clean you out quickly. Don’t leave home without it. Get some of these items in your home and think through how you’ll keep clean.
SEE THE NEED, AND THEN PROCEED, TO BE PREPARED.
