Question regarding the anti-viral wipes

I have been unable to find them at my local grocery store after March 12. I did have most of a large canister of the Lysol wipes left over from our last family camp-out, and half a regular-sized canister of wipes in my car. I use the ones in my car for disinfecting my hands after a trip to the store and the ones at home to disinfect store purchases and delivered packages. I've noticed that the wipes themselves are made of a sturdy cloth-like fabric that is probably not as degradable in the land fill as are paper products. Can I re-use these wipes instead of throwing them away? I though about putting the used wipes in a plastic container and spraying them until moist with a 10% bleach solution and re-using and therefore recycling them would be a good choice. Please give my your opinions as to whether or not to re-use the wipes. Thanks for your input!

You know that extra $600 a week unemployment benefit that passed congress has finally

showed up. I got this e-mail this morning from my state's Employment Security department:

Employment security department

You’ll automatically get the extra $600 per week.
You don’t need to request it – you’ll start seeing those payments as soon as this week.
There’s only one exception: People who receive in-training benefits won’t get it.

Extend your benefits by 13 weeks.
Continue filing your weekly claims.
As soon as you see the option to file an “PEUC claim”, do it as soon as possible. Watch for this alert in eServices after April 18. It should appear in the same place you click to file a weekly claim, and will show up as you are nearing the end of the typically available 26 weeks of benefits.

This will extend your benefits by 13 weeks under the federal CARES Act.

Job search is optional.
On your weekly claim, say “no” on job search: It won’t affect your benefit.
Job search is currently optional as a result of the “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” initiative. We still encourage you to look for work during this time if you are laid off, but it is not required, so selecting no is the best option. Changes to job search requirements will be posted on our website at esd.wa.gov.

There’s always something new to learn on ESD.WA.GOV.
Take a look at the updated website. It has a new look and new information that will answer most of your questions.
Have you checked out the worker Q&A on our COVID-19 webpage lately? We update it constantly with new information about the federal stimulus legislation.

Guess I can make rent next month, and make a much-needed pilgrimage to my local grocery store. As to my $1200 stimulus, well, it is still MIA.

Heads up on this phishing e-mail I got from "Amazon"

I got this e-mail today telling me that I needed to "update my credit card because it expired and my Prime account was in jeopardy". It looked absolutely legit. Of course, it wanted me to **click the link** to update my credit card info. HA! I went on Amazon's website, and there was NOTHING wrong with my account, so I reported it to: stop-spoofing@amazon.com. It's a scam a minute out there. Be careful, my friends.
