I turn our pens in isolation but never alone as I always have the radio on in the workshop and Catherine pops in to keep an eye on me not to mention the dog and the 2 cats!!
We assemble our pens in our office, only Catherine and I work in the office. We clean down all work surfaces before we start assembling every pen.
When the pen is assembled we prepare the pen box by spraying the inside with sanitiser aerosol and wipe the outside of the box with a sanitiser cleaner also. We do this while wearing our disposable gloves. We wipe the pen with sanitiser and put it into the gift box, we wrap the box in recycled corrugated card and put all into our biodegradable mailer bag, one last puff of sanitiser aerosol into the bag and then we seal it up for posting. We give the outside of the packet another wipe down before we bring it to our local post office for shipping.
