Don’t let Fun in the Sun Turn to Ouch on the Couch School’s out and summer has finally arrived in Iowa. With that comes heat, humidity and fun in the sun, so be prepared to follow heat safety guidelines and keep your family healthy in the hottest weather. Having the right necessities and products with you at all times can save you a lot of pain, and potentially a trip to the doctor. Stay Hydrated Water Bottles When it’s 95 degrees outside and you’re family is heading to the ball diamonds, your kids are going to be working hard just standing in the sweltering heat, much less running after the ball. Whether you are heading outdoors for work or play, take a cooler of water bottles. No other drink rehydrates quite as quickly, or as well as water. If you do find yourself dehydrated, you may experience increased thirst, dry mouth or swollen tongue, weakness, dizziness, sluggishness, fainting, decreased urine output and inability to sweat. If you can drink water slowly and avoid alcohol or caffeine. Eat something to replace electrolytes. If you can’t eat, drink a sports drink. If your health does not improve, have somebody take you to the doctor or emergency room. Avoid the Burn with Sunscreen and Shade While a little sunshine is great for your state of mind, a sunburn can take the fun right out of a family picnic, or trip to the water park. If you need to be out in the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., find a shady spot to sit part of the time. Don’t forget the...Learn More

How Can You Make Your Environments Safer This Month? 1. Make sure all first aid kits are properly stocked in case of emergency. 2. Get fire extinguishers tested, filled or replaced. 3. Look at wood and cement structures, decks and sidewalks to ensure they are free of tripping hazards. Fix any tripping or slipping hazards. 4.

That oil spill in your garage is an eyesore, but if you work with chemicals, motor oil or other hazardous liquids that may spill, having the right absorbent handy is a necessity. If you are environmentally conscious and deal with hazardous waste that causes spills, Sphagsorb is a great option, compared to other absorbents. While kitty litter and dishwashing detergent are cheap ways to pick up most of a small oil leak or spill, they may not cover a large spill very well and are certain to allow an oily seepage. Here’s why Sphagsorb is a great choice for spills large and small: It is Safe and Absorbent Traditional absorbents are carcinogenic, and that is a harmful thing to be exposed to. People and animals are safe to touch and breathe around Spagsorb. Peat moss made of partially fossilized plant matter, Sphagsorb is an all-natural solution to disposing of leaks and spills. Affordable and Eco-Friendly Spill Absorbent The plentiful and renewable materials that make up Sphagsorb provide a cost effective alternative to traditional spill absorbents, and Sphasorb works just as well or better than competitive brands. Because it is made up of partially fossilized plant life, Sphagsorb is biodegradable, unlike other spill absorbents. If you are Earth conscious, when you send your mess to the landfill, you can feel better that it will compost down like organic matter, rather than staying in its current form for decades. Sphagsorb expands and encapsulates all of the liquid and hazardous material that is soaks up, so it becomes more absorbent and takes less absorbent to a big job. Because it encapsulates the...Learn More
