Not-so-obvious home essentials

While everyone’s situation looks a bit different and every household operates in its own unique way, there are certain items with widespread potential to create happier, healthier, more comfortable spaces.

Not-so-obvious home essentials

(StatePoint) Extended time at home is making many families more aware of what products they simply can’t do without. While you may have predicted what some of these essentials would be – ahem, toilet paper – other, not-so-obvious items are helping to make quarantines more comfortable nationwide.

To get a handle on what has come in most handy during this stay-at-home period, Zevo recently conducted a national survey, and here are some of the items topping people’s lists:

Home exercise equipment: Those with gym memberships or a love of the outdoors may never have assumed there would come a day when they would need a home stationary bike or treadmill. But such equipment is for many people the best way to work out these days, and those who lack the space for a piece of heavy machinery are turning to resistance bands, yoga mats and other smaller items that can be tucked away between uses.

Multipurpose tools: Many people are finding that certain basics can be used in more than one way, making them ideal to have around the house. Baking soda for example, has many potential uses, including kitchen cleaner, odor eliminator, itch remedy, vegetable wash and even as an ingredient for homemade dog toothpaste, to name a few. Likewise, you might find that pair of scissors a go-to household item right about now, whether you are home-schooling, crafting or giving yourself a haircut.

Streaming video: At a time when people must remain at home, they are relying more than ever on video streaming services like Netflix and Hulu to keep them entertained night after night.

Fun and games: Screen time may be on the rise, but as it turns out, so is good-old-fashioned family fun, with many households naming puzzles and games as must-have items. Whether it’s solving a complicated 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle or organizing a family checkers tournament, having a well-stocked game room or den is a great idea right now.

Bug spray: The last thing people want during quarantine is to share their home with pests. Unfortunately, due to a warm winter and wet spring, the forecast for ants, roaches, mosquitoes and more predicts a very buggy 2020. With so much additional time spent around the house, selecting products without harsh chemicals and odors makes a lot of sense. Zevo Instant Action Sprays with BioSelective Technology use essential oils to attack nervous system receptors vital to insects – not people or pets. With a light scent of lemongrass and no harsh chemical odors, it’s a powerful bug solution you can feel good about using around the home.

  1. I oversee a vape shop directory and we have had a posting from a vape store in the United States that also offers CBD products. A Month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been restricted and have asked us to take out PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop submission site. We do not offer CBD items such as CBD oil. We simply offer marketing and advertising solutions to CBD firms. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Health Store and if you take a close look, you will witness that they offer for sale a rather extensive stable of CBD product lines, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement solution. It seems that PayPal is applying contradictory standards to many different companies. Because of this stipulation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has restricted my payment options and right now, I am seriously dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have spoken with a barrister from a Magic Circle law firm in The city of london and they stated that what PayPal is undertaking is completely illegal and discriminatory as it should be applying a systematic benchmark to all companies. I am yet to consult with one more lawyer from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. In the meantime, I would be extremely appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with substitute payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.
