Sanitise your Home

If you’ve just had a gathering or a visitor who has been unwell, try these ways to make your home more sanitary

  • Disinfect doorknobs, cabinet doors, handles, fridge door and touchpoints
  • Clean windows and closures that may have been touched
  • Dust furniture
  • Strip your sheets and cushion and disinfect
  • Spray down your mattresses and pillows with disinfectant and put in the sun to kill germs
  • Change towels, hand towels and dish towels and disinfect
  • Wipe down all surfaces and appliances in your kitchen, bathrooms, offices, playrooms and gym equipment
  • Air your matt/rugs and put them in the sun to kill germs; get them cleaned if you can
  • Sweep, then mop with disinfectant
  • Disinfect kickboards & skirting boards

Note: Cleaning should always start from the least soiled (cleanest) area to the most soiled (dirtiest) area in order to not spread the dirty to areas that are less soiled

To Disinfect

  • Alcohol at 70%-90% can be used as a disinfectant
  • Surface wipes with disinfectant or alcohol
  • 1 part 5% strength bleach to 49 parts water

Note: Any natural disinfectants or home recipes such as double strength white vinegar, lemon juice and baking soda, essential oils and borax are not strong enough to get rid of microbial contamination including salmonella, E. coli and COVID-19

Stay Safe

If you do not want to risk infection, please ensure appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is used, like protective eyewear, gloves, plastic aprons and clothing coverings that can be disposed of after use.

How to Clear a Blocked Drain

Using items you already have at home, unclog drains or sinks with 3 easy steps

  1. Pour boiling water down the drain
  2. Use equal parts baking soda and vinegar and let sit for 20-30 minutes
  3. Pour more boiling water to finish

For major blockages, try using a straightened coat hanger to capture hairs or debris that may have washed down and anything more serious should be tended to by a plumber.

Top Tips and Tricks for Cleaning

Having been stuck at home during COVID, we have compiled our favorite ways to take care of our space.

Clean the microwave:

Put a soapy sponge in the microwave for 1 minute and let cool for another minute. The steam from the sponge will soften any food splatters and the warm sponge can be used to wipe away the mess easily.

Disinfect your computer accessories:

Use a toothbrush to brush out any dust and debris. Clean the toothbrush and dip in alcohol based sanitizer to get in between your keys, clicker and scroller

Sticky tape stuck to walls:

Use a hairdryer to heat up the tape so it can be easily removed in one piece

Use half a lemon dipped in some course salt:

This can be used to clean anything that needs disinfecting or a little abrasion for example, shower screens, wooden chopping boards, and is also perfect for grease removal.

Polishing:

Rub your taps and handles with some wax paper after they have been cleaned to maintain the shine and prevent water spots.

Pet hair removal:

Whilst wearing a rubber or latex glove, run your palm across your pet’s favorite couch to ball- up and collect loose hairs.
