Wipe Away for a Cleaner Home and Office

15 July 2021

Here’s the usual checklist to stay safe and clean every day: wear a mask, wash your hands, and observe social distancing. Good job—but aren’t you missing something?

Now that everything about YOU is a check, it’s time to consider the rest—the surfaces you touch, the things you bring to public places and come into contact with. The outside world is brimming with COVID and other germs that are transmitted by contact on surfaces and public fixtures. 

You’ll never know who touched what and when. Even the banknote you got as change from the coffee shop may be contaminated. Rather than start with a guessing game, it’s better to just be on top of the cleaning game.

Remember what you touch

In a day, your hands touch multiple surfaces and things. You lean on (or even nap) on your table, leave your bags on chairs, place your dirty laundry in the bathroom, and use bags when you go shopping.  

Even if you’ve washed your hands, don’t forget the things you’ve touched while outside: bags, coins, keys, and today’s essential life, your phone! 

The case and glass screen could harbor germs—imagine touching the elevator buttons then messaging your officemate and finally fixing your hair. 

The best defense is to be proactive in cleaning the common and high-touch areas, and if you’re being meticulous, include your shoes, bag, and its contents.

WebMD cites that the viruses tend to stick longer on non-living and non-porous things:

  • Metal:  5-9 days

  • Glass and ceramics: up to 5 days

  • Wood: 4 days

  • Plastic and stainless steel: 2-3 days

  • Copper: 4 hours

  • Aluminum: 2-8 hours

The only way to get these clean is to give them the equivalent of a proper handwash—through disinfectant wipes.

Wipe them down

In as fast as 15 seconds, Mikrozid surface wipes can disinfect any surface from germs and enveloped viruses such as COVID. Public or frequently used surfaces can be a magnet for viruses and bacteria, so a quick wipe should get rid of them while leaving a clean finish.

Mikrozid surface wipes are tested to be gentle on your skin—so that means they’re safe to use on your mobile device, keyboard, shoes (and soles), reusable plastic bag, jewelry, or even plastic bottle.

As a surface cleaner, it's no-tear material makes it perfect for disinfecting tables, chairs, doorknobs, faucets, sinks, light switches, windows, and mirrors. It also comes in a handy package, so you can use it anywhere like your office, a park, or a restaurant.

How to use:

  1. Wash your hands before pulling out a wipe.

  2. Wipe using the “S” pattern to cover more area.

  3. Make sure the entire surface is wet to ensure that everything’s been disinfected.

  4. Use more wipes if cleaning a larger area.

  5. Remember to dispose of the wipes properly and to seal the lid, so that the product will not dry out.

For more powerful disinfection wipes, you can use Mikrozid AF wipes that are alcohol-based. These wipes deliver quick cleaning action and target enveloped viruses and contaminated areas. They are also hospital-grade so you can effectively disinfect any solid surface such as steel, wood, plastic, glass, sinks and counters, toilet bowls, your computer mouse, and keyboard.

While the Mikrozid AF wipes are a super disinfectant, just remember not to use them on surfaces that are sensitive to alcohol like acrylic glass or paints and varnish. 

How to use: 

  1. Wash your hands, and wear gloves because the alcohol content may be too harsh or drying.

  2. Invert the tub three times to mix the solution with the nonwoven wipe.

  3. Pull out a wipe.

  4. Wipe using the “S” pattern to cover more area.

  5. Make sure the entire surface is wet to ensure that everything’s been disinfected.

  6. Use more wipes if cleaning a larger area.

  7. Remember to dispose of the wipes properly and to always close the lid, so that the product will not dry out.

If you think that handwashing is fun and healthy, think about the millions of germs killed in every wipe you make! 

Disinfecting the high-risk and high-touch areas doubles your cleanliness shield and makes your home a real sweet and clean home.
