COVID-19 mean you should be taking care more than ever and this experts shows you what to focus on.
We’re on a mission to kill those germs on things we touch daily, including computers, phones, door handles and kitchen worktops to name just a few. But are you disinfecting those other areas where those nasty germs like to hide. SterilOx disinfectant spokesperson, Dmitry Anisimov, chief business development officer, reveals the 10 places you may not have thought to disinfect before.
Research carried out by the New England Journal of Medicine has shown that COVID-19 can in fact live on surfaces including copper for up to four hours, cardboard for up to 24 hours and plastic and steel for up to 72 hours. So you know what to do; get the disinfectant spray out and give them a good going over before bring your shopping indoors.
Handbag or purse
These items are potentially be a magnet for attracting germs. Just think where you have put your handbag down when you’re out and then where you place it one you return home. This is why it is so important to keep it clean and sterile once you’re back from your outings.
Soaking up bacteria is what your kitchen sponge does best. Change it often and use a disinfectant such as SterilOx to chase away that nasty bacteria lurking around your sink.
Think about all the handling these get, from you to shop assistant to machine and back again, not to mention those busy ATM’s. It does no harm by disinfecting them and give them a quick spray to get rid of these germs.
The tool that does the cleaning for us but how many times do you clean the handle and the attachment tools?
Underneath your rugs
Flip those rugs and do the underside where dust and dirt can be trapped.
These dirt magnets require a good daily spray to keep those germs away. You can also use a toothpick to help get inside those button crevices.
Again, these are touched so many times a day and should be cleaned often to remove any traces of germs and nasty bugs.
These go everywhere with you and rest on many surfaces from checkout supermarkets to kitchen counters and inside handbags. You know what to do… wipe them down! Don’t forget to disinfect all surfaces inside your car too. As we bring our groceries into the car in carrier bags, it’s important to remember to clean all of the surfaces including the steering wheel and gears too.
If you’re trying to keep fit at home and you’re using a mat to exercise on, sweat from your hands and feet can lead to bacteria growth. Simply spray down by disinfecting with SterilOx and keep your mat fresher for much longer.
