Disinfectants in the Bathroom
The bathroom should be disinfected using the same principles you applied to cleaning the kitchen.
- Be sure to disinfect areas where a lot of bacteria are likely to build up – like the toilet bowl and under the sink taps.
- Clean and disinfect the surfaces that are the most frequently touched – the door handles, the washbasin, and the toilet roll holder.
- Don’t forget about the areas that remain damp or wet for extended periods of time – use disinfectants on the bath, shower, and sink.
Being Safe When Using Disinfectants
Disinfectants and anti-bacterial agents are vital to maintaining a hygienic household, but they must not be over-used. Over-use of disinfectant might harm your immune system, and might also encourage bacterial resistance to disinfectants.
As with all domestic cleaning products, read the label carefully before using any disinfectant product, work in a well-ventilated area, wear suitable protection on your hands and face, and finally, remember to clean your hands afterwards.
