Coronavirus Prevention – Germy Things That We Forget to Clean
While a speck of dust or dust will not survive a spray of disinfectant on the bathroom floor or kitchen counter, many household objects will. Frequently, your everyday cleaning exercise involves areas that are not immediately apparent. However, the house will not be properly cleaned until you clean and sanitise some common objects. Here are some of the items you should include in your cleaning list, especially for coronavirus prevention, to provide a decent, healthy, and safe environment in which to raise your family.
Disinfect Kitchen Drawer Handles
Even though you frequently contact the drawer handles, they are rarely cleaned with a disinfectant liquid. These untreated handles are frequently the source of germs developing in the kitchen. At least once a week, give your kitchen a thorough cleaning. Clean the kitchen drawer handles using a clean cloth and hot water diluted with Dettol Antiseptic Disinfectant Liquid while you're at it. This solution should be applied to the handles and left for 5 minutes. Then, using a cotton cloth or kitchen towels, wipe it clean.
Dining Mats or Placemats
Placemats are well-known for their effectiveness in preventing food and drink stains on wooden tables. These mats, on the other hand, can become filthy in a matter of days. If your mats are made of vinyl, a disinfectant spray will suffice. Fabric mats, on the other hand, must be cleaned with hot water and Dettol Antiseptic Disinfectant Liquid. Soak them for 30 minutes and then wash them in the washing machine. If you have handmade placemats, you should hand wash them. Once every 7-8 days, clean these mats.
Reusable Shopping Bags
We don't think about the cleaning of reusable shopping bags until there are obvious stains all over them. However, with time, these bags begin to emit a terrible odour and provide an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and moulds. Wash the reusable shopping bags in a washing machine after soaking them in hot water diluted with a disinfectant liquid.
Who would ever have guessed that ice cube or freezer trays could be a breeding habitat for bacteria? They are, in fact. Undeniably. Cleaning the trays with disinfectant sprays on a regular basis might thus be an effective strategy to keep germs at bay in your refrigerator. These trays can also be washed in the dishwasher.
While the faucet sieve can hide the filth that has accumulated in the faucets, they are still a breeding ground for germs and moulds. Using an antiseptic disinfectant liquid and warm water, scrub the handles and faucets on a daily basis. If there are any stuck-on stains or watermarks on the taps, scrub and wash them off after 5 minutes with an antiseptic disinfectant liquid and lukewarm water solution.
Sponge and scrub brush for the kitchen
The kitchen sponge and cleaning brush are another frequently overlooked household item. While they assist in dishwashing, the kitchen sponge and scrub brush must be cleaned as well. Cleaning them every night or disinfecting them between usage is a good approach to keep germs and bacteria out of the kitchen. You can also soak them in warm water with diluted antiseptic or disinfectant liquid overnight and then wash them off the next morning.
We hope you don't overlook these locations the next time you clean your house. Also, remember to use a hand sanitizer to keep yourself germ-free while keeping your house clean.
