Cleaning is a hot topic right now. Considering how easily COVID-19 can spread onto surfaces, it’s not hard to see why. That’s why it’s important to make sure you’re cleaning surfaces that you touch often. Here are our top tips for keeping your space clean!
What do I need?
- Household cleaning wipes
- Household cleaning product with disinfectant qualities
- Washing up liquid
Top tip #1
Don’t worry too much about having lots of cleaning products. Even having just one good all-purpose disinfectant can allow you to use it in lots of different places.
Top tip #2
Share the chores! If there are more people in your flat, have a chat to agree on a schedule when each person will clean the kitchen. Practice social distancing by taking turns to clean different areas.
Top tip #3
Clean up spills as soon as they happen! It’ll be more difficult to clean when it’s all crusty.
Top tip #4
Make a checklist! Print or write out a quick checklist to make sure all the spaces have been cleaned. For example: wipe outside and inside of rubbish bins, clean microwave inside and out, mop kitchen floor, etc. It also helps if you start from the same part of the kitchen each time. Don’t forget your bathroom too!
Top tip #5
Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds before and after putting on gloves.
Top tip #6
If your cleaning cloth is not disposable, wash in a sink of hot soapy water after use.
Stay safe and healthy!
