Be Road Trip Ready - The Essential Checklist

Be Road Trip Ready - The Essential Checklist.

Road trips are back on the agenda for many people around Australia now that restrictions are easing and they provide an easy way to take a much needed break during what has been a challenging year.

Staying well while travelling -

Some people might be worried about travelling during the holidays and how they’ll stay safe. Keep these tips in mind for safe, healthy travelling:

  • It can be easy to forget about social distancing when you’re in the middle of a long driving trip. Before you all jump out of the car at a service station or playground, remind everyone to keep the 1.5 metres rule in mind. Avoid large crowds.
  • If you are worried when visiting places where social distancing is difficult, wear a mask.
  • Keep an alcohol-based sanitiser in the car, so you can keep hands clean on the go.
  • Pack Tushon 3Ply Toilet Seat Covers to use at any public toilets along the way.
  • Keep some disposal gloves handy to use when filling up the car at service stations.
  • A disinfectant spray is important to sterilise frequently touched surfaces like public toilet handles and restaurant menus. Tushon Hand and Surface Sanitiser Spray provides a convenient pocket size spray that can be used to kill germs fast on your hands and frequently touched surfaces, and is easy to carry in your bag, pocket or car.
  • If you’re staying in accommodation overnight, wipe down all frequently touched surfaces with antibacterial wipes while wearing gloves and ventilate the room well during the day.
  • Keep hand washing - Whether you’re heading to a tourist attraction or hanging at the local playground, make sure you keep your hands clean by washing them often. It’s especially important to wash hands before making food, eating or after using the toilet. If you aren’t able to get to a bathroom with soap and water, carry a container of alcohol-based hand sanitiser with you instead.

If you’re still feeling uncomfortable about heading out, especially if you or your child has a medical condition that could put them at risk of serious illness, remember that you don’t need to go far and wide these holidays. There are lots of local activities and sights to explore in every region and simple day trips provide a great sense of well being and enjoyment.

    My name is Caroline Mortlock and I am the creator and owner of TUSHON Premium Toilet Seat Covers.

    I live in the beautiful Southern Highlands NSW and I am a mum to three energetic kids, four crazy fur babies, and the wife of former Australian Rugby Captain - Stirling Mortlock (who may be the biggest kid of them all).

    I created TUSHON because I really dislike public toilets and I wanted to provide the best protection for my family and for people who share the same concerns about germs. Whether you’re a mum who wants to completely cover the seat to protect your toddler, or you have a medical condition that makes using public toilets difficult, TUSHON was created to help you feel prepared, comfortable and protected when you put your “tush on” ANY public toilet seat.

    It's easy to make your safety a priority when using public toilets and protect yourself against getting sick.

    Ever since the World Health Organization (WHO) reported a cluster of 41 confirmed cases of viral severe acute respiratory syndrome in Wuhan, Hubei Province, in the People’s Republic of China on January 12th 2020, our lives haven’t been the same.

    Since then we have learnt many worrying facts about transmission from those that are studying it internationally, but this information is important in helping us understand how we can protect ourselves and reduce our chances of being infected with SARS-CoV-2 which leads to the clinical disease state known as COVID-19.
