If you are stepping out to run quick errands, carry a light sling bag and fill it with a few important essentials.

  • Carry a bottle of hand sanitizer and keep sanitizing your hands after every surface you touch or come in contact with which can easily fit in any dual compartment sling bag.
  • Carry a pack of tissues, if at all you sneeze and cough, it's imperative to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue and dispose away used tissues immediately after the right way.
  • A mask is one of your best defender. Wear it to cover your nose and mouth whenever you step out.

If you are reporting to office or commuting long distances, you certainly need to carry a few more essentials. Preferably a big tote bag or a backpack to hoard the items to sail you through the entire day.

  • Carry a surface disinfectant to spray and clean surfaces. A small bottle can always be stuffed in your front pockets of a backpack along with hand sanitizers or a soap.
  • Carry healthy solid food items and home-cooked food and eat immunity building food items. A backpack will fit in your essentials along with food items safely in different pockets.
  • Never forget our 2 superheroes- Mask and Sanitizer. Portable and small in size can easily fit in the back-pockets of your handbag.

Ensure to keep your handbag clean as well because it contributes to contamination since it comes in contact with people and surfaces.


You can give the handles of your handbag or backpack a quick wipe down with a damp cloth. On fabrics, a fabric freshening spray is a good idea, however, do not saturate the fabric or it may risk warping the bag or damaging any metalwork.

Use a separate cosmetic pouch, all your make-up knick-knacks are major culprits of contamination since it comes in contact with your face. Keep a make-up pouch in your big handbag to separate it with other items.
