This helpful infographic takes the guess work out of knowing how often we should be washing our hands and cleaning other frequently touched items like cell phones and handbags.
The 5th March will mark one year since the first Coronavirus case was reported confirmed in South Africa. Since then our lives have changed dramatically, and many of those changes have been related to our daily hygiene services and practices.
We've written many articles over the last year, trying to guide our readers and customers through the changes that the pandemic has wrought, and offering what we hope is useful, insightful and practical advice.
But every now and again we like to take a more visual approach and offer you an infographic which sums up topics we may have covered in the past. Knowing how often to wash or clean everyday items such as phones, keyboards and desks is something we believe everyone should be aware of, and as for hand washing... well, let's just say we have pretty much written a book on that!
So we've summed up 6 things that we think really need your attention in terms of regular washing or cleaning:
- Hands: As I said, this is probably the topic we cover the most often on the Insights page, but for good reason. Effective hand washing with soap and water, followed by proper drying, can minimise your COVID-19 risk and literally save your life.
- Face masks: However you feel about them, face masks have become a fact of life, but in order to be truly effective, they need to be washed regularly and fitted properly. Read our post "10 things you absolutely need to know about wearing a mask"
- Cell phone: If you've ever taken your pone to the bathroom with you, we think you should read this!
- Belt buckle: Often a surprise, belt buckles are one of those places that you probably never even considered to be a hygiene hot spot. Read "7 hygiene hotspots we bet you didn't know about" for more.
- Hand bags: Read our previous post "How clean is your handbag" for more on why these every day accessories can be a cross contamination risk, or take a look at the journey of the handbag here.
- Desk and keyboard: Whether in your home office or at work, these are items we need to keep hygienic in order to prevent the risks of cross contamination.
