Although there are certain surfaces that we clean and disinfect regularly (looking at you, kitchen counter), there’s no denying there are some surfaces we forget to clean. How many of these are you forgetting to clean on the regular?
Reusable grocery bags
You take it with you to the store on a regular basis. It sits in your car boot, glovebox, or in your handbag. It carries all your groceries and produce into your home. So how often are you disinfecting and washing your reusable grocery bags?
Objects that get close to your eyes
Sunglasses, reading glasses, and contact lenses get very close and personal with some sensitive areas of your face. The last thing you want is contaminated surfaces getting into your eye. Whilst you might clean them on the regular, are you disinfecting them properly too?
Toothbrushes and toothbrush holders
We all know that toothbrushes should be replaced every three to four months. However, what often goes overlooked is the container in which you store your toothbrush and toothpaste. This container should be washed and disinfected properly at least once a week to stop the growth of biofilm from building up.
While it’s a great idea to keep those reusable water bottles on hand to keep you hydrated, you should remember to wash them daily and disinfect them on the regular to stop you from ingesting the germs that collect on them. And remember to wash and sanitize your water bottle lids as well!
Purses and wallets
When’s the last time you subjected your wallet or purse to a good clean? We’re guessing it’s been a while. Since they spend most of their time in pockets or handbags, wallets and purses tend to be forgotten when it’s cleaning time. Remember to disinfect them regularly, as they are high-touch items and get placed on various surfaces.
Keys and keychains
We’re betting you’re likely never disinfected your keys or keychains. But they’re everyday items that get handled a lot, so we’re recommending that you give it a good spray with disinfectant as often as you remember to.
Credit cards, ID cards, and gym cards
They’re handled by you on a near daily basis, and often they may be handed over to gym attendants, waiters, bartenders, petrol attendants, and store cashiers, which means they have a high chance of picking up germs on the way.
We recommend cleaning your cards at least once a week by applying BluLyte Disinfectant to a clean cloth, cotton ball or pad, or paper towel, and gently wiping down the front and back of the card. Let your cards air dry before putting it back in your wallet or purse.
A couple of things to remember for cleaning cards: don’t scrub magnetic strips and chips, don’t use an abrasive sponge, and don’t use corrosive liquids like rubbing alcohol on your cards.
These are high-touch surfaces that often get overlooked. While it’s not recommended to spray disinfectant directly onto the switch cover, spray your BluLyte Disinfectant liberally onto a cloth and clean your switches well.
We’re talking door handles, bedside table handles, toilet handles. They’re high-touch surfaces that come into contact with microbes on a daily basis.
Tv remotes or game controllers
You touch them, your kids touch them, and often multiple people fight over who gets to control it. Remember to give your remotes and remote controllers a good wipe down.
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Multiple people running their hands along banisters and hand railings? Definitely a surface that needs to be disinfected well.
Electronics like keyboards, laptops, tablets, and phones
These high-touch items often go uncleaned because of their circuitry, but should be carefully disinfected nonetheless. After all, your phone gets very close to your face, comes into contact with various surfaces, and often is not cleaned as well as it should.
You’re likely spending more time in your car than you’d care to admit, but can you remember the last time you properly cleaned and disinfected the inside of your vehicle? We’re talking doors and door handles, steering wheel and gearshift, even the radio face and glove box latches.
Just like our very own plates and mugs, pet food and water dishes should be washed daily and disinfected at least once a week to stop the build up of biofilm on the surfaces of their dishes.
They’re on the floor, in your pets’ mouths, and come into contact with your pets’ grubby paws. It’s easy to see why pet toys should be washed and disinfected regularly. But often these do not get cleaned as often as they maybe should.
