Hello everyone. It's day nineteen of my mandatory leave from my government job due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Even though it is a temporary separation, it feels like a very long time because in fifteen years I have never taken more than maybe one week off at my job at any one time.

As a follow-up to my blog post yesterday, where I talked about my Etsy Shop Vintage Tea Treasures and the current Etsy campaign #standwithsmall, I would like to share with you what I am doing to help keep the Etsy community safe during this unprecedented time.

From the very beginning, my top mission at Vintage Tea Treasures has always been to provide the very best vintage tea ware I am able to source. Part of that process is, of course, cleaning items once I bring them home. I have always first washed my finds in warm water using a mild dish soap, and then cleaned thoroughly with household rubbing alcohol.

After testing and inspecting, the tea ware is then ready for photographing and listing. Once that is done, all items are stored in brand new plastic bins according to SKU number.

When an item sells, I have always done a final testing and cleaning with rubbing alcohol before packing and shipping. I understand that we are all concerned about coronavirus, and so I have added a new process to my packing and shipping procedure. I am now wearing safety gloves at the final testing and cleaning stage and while packing. I have always used brand new packing materials and I will continue to do so.

I hope this helps alleviate any concerns you may have about safety, and for further information you may like to read These Common Household Products Can Destroy the Novel Coronavirus from Consumer Reports.

Thank you and have a peaceful evening.
