5 Tips to Keep your home cleaner and safer from germs during self-isolation


Even outside of a global pandemic, spending more time at home means more germs and more cleaning required, but right now, it’s more important than ever to stay on top of home hygiene to keep your family safe.

Keeping your home clean can feel like an overwhelming task on a good day, let alone when it’s full of people who keep making a mess!

Domestos offers some handy advice to help you make your home a safe zone:

  1. Start with the Top 10 High Touch Areas – For peace of mind, use a thick bleach such as Domestos Thick Multipurpose Bleach to clean high touch areas that are regularly exposed to germs. These include; light switches, door handles, cupboard handles, bathroom surfaces, toilet and flusher, kitchen surfaces, kitchen appliances, taps, fridge door and electronic devices (don’t recommend bleach for these)
  2. Clean these areas once per day if possible, along with your daily clean / tidy of main areas.
  3. Start by cleaning with soap and water to remove dirt and then disinfect with bleach
  • Bleach can be used undiluted in the toilet, but other areas may require dilution (1 part Domestos to 4 parts water). It’s best to check precaution statement on the back of your product to see more on surface types and usage.
  • Use gloves to protect your hands, dab your cloth or sponge into the bowl or bucket and use this to clean your surfaces.
  • Make sure to keep your home well ventilated when using bleach
  1. Clean and disinfect kitchen surfaces and appliances after every use as these are coming into contact with food
  2. Don’t forget floors. Consider a ‘no shoes in the house’ rule for a while to limit bringing any additional germs into the house. You can add bleach to your floor cleaner to disinfect floors when you clean.

Remember, Domestos Multipurpose Thick Bleach with extended power formula kills 99.9% of germs and can be used throughout your home to protect your surfaces for hours after use.

With a little extra effort and the extended power of Domestos, we can keep our homes safer from germs and we will be #UnstoppableTogether
