When it comes to getting clean, shiny floors that are streak-free and germ-free, we recommend Handy Andy’s Floor and All Purpose cleaning liquid range. The all-purpose liquids cleaning products range uses acti-shine technology which enables the cleaner to remove dirt and leave the floor with an impeccable shine.

Cleaning High-Germ Areas

When we talk about high-germ areas, we’re talking about areas in the home where the most germs tend to be found and settle in. These areas are generally considered to be the:

  • Toilet bowl

  • Flooring around the toilet
