How to Clean After a flu
The rains and then the aftermath - as fun as the season is, it brings with it a number of diseases and viruses that can debilitate your family.
The common cold and other seasonal infections are bound to come into the home. Did you know that you can follow simple cleaning routines to get rid of bacteria and viruses from the house after one member has been sick?
When a bug strikes, it's likely that it will hide in sneaky areas and stay there for a long time. Flu viruses live for 24 hours on some surfaces. Deep cleaning should be a part of your regular home cleaning routine and going this extra mile will certainly help in keeping the family healthy.
Here is a low down on the germ-harbouring parts of your house once the siege is over. Get scrubbing now and don’t forget to stock up on the cleaning supplies.
The bathroom is the right place to start. Make sure to thoroughly clean the bathroom once the storm has passed by first, disinfecting the toilet cover, handles, seats, faucets and other fittings. Koparo Tap and Shower Cleaner is a high quality cleaner which can safely clean your bathroom fittings without causing any damage. The active salts in it can safely remove germs.

Change towels & bedding

So put the towels, sheets, blankets, and pillows in the washing machine and use a hot cycle to wash them. To really bust up the germs, add Koparo’s laundry liquid detergent in your routine, it has eucalyptus oil that provides protection against common germs.
Remote Controls & Phones
When you are sick, there’s probably a lot of TV, Netflix and Prime that gets watched. This turns the remote and phone into a germ centre. Make sure to use disinfectant wipes to clean any frequently touched electronic devices, including computers, tablets, phones, and keyboards. You could also use Koparo’s Gadget Disinfectant Cleaner to clean, deodorize and disinfect your gadgets.
