How to disinfect your bathroom
Keeping your bathroom hygienically clean and shiny for you and your family is one of the most important things to do while disinfecting your home. It is very likely you may get infected through your bathroom and pass it to other family members if there are any type of germs left behind. The damp and humid conditions of a bathroom can cause the appearance of germs, such as bacteria and fungi.
As we have mentioned in various occasions, it’s not only about cleaning the general surfaces, but also making sure you cover those areas where germs are hidden. Follow this check list while cleaning your bathroom to make sure you are disinfecting every surface and object in this room.
Floor & Wall Tiles
Clean and disinfect bathroom walls and floors to prevent the appearance of bacteria and fungi due to excess of humidity. Floors and walls often accumulate more bacteria than other areas of the bathroom as we bring in dirt from inside and outside the home, hair is accumulated on the floors, water is spilled from the sink or the shower and even germs are spilled from the toilet. Don’t forget to cover all corners and hidden areas, such as under the toilet and sinks.
A good disinfection of your toilet is highly important to keep your bathroom clean and disinfected. You will need to cover the inside of the bowl, the toilet seat, the lid and very importantly the toilet flush button or handle. Remember to always close the lid before flushing the toilet to prevent germs going from your toilet to other bathroom surfaces.
Shower and bath tub
Scrub correctly to disinfect tiles, tub, shower doors and shower heads to ensure we remove germs. Disinfect your towels, bath mat and shower curtain with your washing machine and Wyx Disinfectant Laundry Cleanser. If you have a plastic bath mat ensure you also disinfect it using Wyx Disinfectant Bathroom Cleaner, as excess of humidity can cause the appearance of fungi.
Bathroom taps and sinks
To prevent infections between family members, it is important you disinfect daily or weekly the taps. It is one of the surfaces that we tend to touch the most while being in the bathroom. Sinks are also very important as we brush our teeth and wash our face and hands there, and the dirt may remain on the sink if we do not clear it well with water and disinfect it correctly.
Toothbrush holders often get filled with germs and humidity if they are placed near the sink. This is one of the most popular hot spots people tend to forget when cleaning the bathroom, and it should be one of the most important. If our toothbrush holder is not being correctly disinfected, we might get infected through our mouth and hands when using our toothbrush.
Besides from cleaning and disinfecting our holder, we must rinse the toothbrush thoroughly after every use and replace it regularly, especially if we’ve been sick.
Always hang to dry correctly your towels and bath mat after using them to avoid bacteria and fungus. To prevent mal odours and humidity, ensure you wash and disinfect them once or twice every week. Add Wyx Disinfectant Laundry Cleanser to your laundry to kill 99,9% of bacteria, fungi and Coronavirus.
