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.

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.

You may also want to consider changing the toothbrushes or giving them a thorough scrub!



Wash each dish used by the sick person with extremely hot water. Clean the surfaces and sinks, and wipe down the handles of your refrigerator and all of the electrical keypads on your appliances with warm soapy water. Koparo's non-toxic dishwash liquid formula is safe for your hands and kitchen surfaces. Enjoy the lime and basil scent while you’re deep cleaning!


Door Handles

Grab some disinfecting wipes and wipe clean door knobs and handles. If you don’t have wipes, use Koparo’s all-purpose cleaner. It has a 3X powerful cleaning formulation with natural surfactants, easy to use and leaves a brilliant orange aroma! You can simply spray some on a micro-fiber cloth or soft dust cloth and wipe away.


Change towels & bedding

After the sick person has recovered you should ensure their clothing is washed in hot water cycles. This includes towels and 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.


Cleaning may be the last thing on your mind as you or someone in the house recovers from a sickness . However, it's important to take this step in order to make sure you completely  get rid of any germs or viruses that might still be present. By doing this, you can protect your family and friends from getting sick too. 

When you’re done cleaning, open the windows in every room for better air circulation. It’s a simple step, but it’ll give your home a fresh start!
