Surf Benefits of Using Hygiene Bleach

Now, more so than ever, we are acutely aware of the importance of sanitising and disinfecting our homes and high-use areas in our houses, in order to kill any kind of bacteria or virus that might be lurking. Covid-19 or not, the importance of keeping your home hygienically clean is essential to ensuring that germs do not grow. Let’s take a look at the benefits of hygiene bleach now, and how to keep your home hygienically clean by using it. We also give you the low down on the new Surf bleach range which we are highly recommending.

What is Hygiene Bleach?

Hygiene liquid bleach products contain chlorine, which is a powerful germ-killing chemical, that can kill most germs, viruses, and bacteria almost instantly. Most bleach products offer a 99.9% certainty that they can kill just about every type of germ, virus, or bacteria that they come into contact with.

Recently, brands have been offering revolutionary new bleach cleaning products called hygiene bleach which still contains chlorine but with an added layer of hygiene cleaning power. When you use hygiene bleach, you can rest assured that you’re getting the strongest form of sanitising and disinfecting product possible.

The Difference Between Hygiene Bleach and Regular Bleach?

In essence, hygiene bleach and regular bleach are no different because they both contain the cleaning agent or chemical, chlorine. The new Surf Total Hygiene Bleach in lemon or lavender scent is a multi-purpose bleach that offers users the ability to confidently clean their home in the most hygienic way when using it.
