Spring Disinfection
This is a good time to give attention to the
sanitation of the home. It is better to prevent
sickness than to depend upon curing it when it
comes, and there can be nothing which will
contribute more to family health than to keep
the premises well disinfected. All sinks, drains,
closets, cellars or dark or damp places about
the home should have attention. We have ali
the reliable disinfectants and can tell you what
to use and how to use it.
