    Re: CORONA virus alert updates

    Today I decided to make some spray on sanitiser for soft furnishings. As you know, the COVID-19 can survive on fabric for a long time and if we need to clean our Airbnb and wish to ensure that the house is thoroughly sanitised, we need something that can be used on fabrics.
    What is available that will not damage the fabric?
    Not much!

    I have a still and have distilled some alcohol for this purpose.
    I diluted the heads from ~80% Alc. to 70% Alc., using my Alcometer hydrometer.
    I added 5 mL of eucalyptus oil to the alcohol.

    I sprayed it on fabric and my wife was impressed by the nice smell. The alcohol evaporates rapidly, but it should work to sanitise the lounge, cushions, curtains and carpets between guests.

    We will have a 3 day break between guests, to minimise the risk of catching the virus.

    Yea, that's what I always though, the country with one of the biggest population on the planet has a the whole thing confined to a province. While there seems to be no geographical boundaries for the virus anywhere else, except maybe North Korea

    If that data was to be true, what do they have or know that we don't?

    Good old rabbit hole, how deep does one what to dig?

    1993 Toyota 75 Series with 1 HDT conversion, 75l factory tank and a custom 170l under tray tank. (Retired with 680.000ks on the clock mostly running on BIO and on WVO)

    2006 Landcruiser Troopcarrier 1HZ with DTS Turbo Kit, 170ltr long range tank currently not converted, running on B100
