Season's Cleanings - don't miss a spot this Christmas, use the 'S' method and #ClinellIt

 * Sponsored post  

It's Christmas in just four more sleeps and preparations are well underway in our house. Whilst the changes just announced by the Government have changed plans for so many, we have to do all we can to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe, and to make the most we can of Christmas celebrations.

Clearing the clutter and keeping the house clean is always part of my countdown to Christmas, as I do like things to be just so, but it's been even more important this year. I wasn't surprised to hear that two thirds of the British public (66%) are more concerned with germs at home since the pandemic began, but I was shocked to learn that less than four in 10 (37%) are actually wiping surfaces in a way that minimises the spread of infection e.g. wiping from the clean area to the dirty area. Apparently, a third of us are cleaning the dirtier section before the cleaner section , which may put us at risk of spreading germs and even COVID-19 on surfaces. 

This is according to a new survey from Gama Healthcare, manufacturers of Clinell Universal Wipes,  the number 1 most used disinfectnat wipes, trusted by 9 out of 10 hosptials. They are sharing some really important advice on how to clean effectively and be reassured that you are doing all you can to keep your home as safe as come be, at a time when families may be coming together for Christmas Day and when we are all concerned about a resulting COVID spike in January. 

So, the question is, do you know how to clean surfaces most effectively and safely, to mop up mess and kill germs?

According to Gama Healthcare's YouGov survey, 82% of Brits think that they have an effective cleaning technique at home, when in actual fact only one in 10 are using a key infection control cleaning technique – the S-shaped wipe –advocated by the experts Gama Healthcare to prevent re-contaminating the areas already cleaned. This is the technique we all should be using:

That's the method, but what products could we use to get the most out of our cleaning routine?

Clinell Universal Wipes are an award-winning product invented by two NHS doctors, who are passionate about reducing infection. After much research and testing, Clinell Universal Wipes, combined with the infection control cleaning methodology, are a tried and trusted way to keep germs at bay. If it's good enough for the NHS, it's good enough for us, right?!   

Top tips on protecting your home this Christmas:

  1. Wipe surfaces in an ‘s’ shaped pattern
  2. Work from top to bottom when cleaning surfaces
  3. Wipe from clean to dirty
  4. Leave to air dry
  5. One wipe, one surface (if using wipes – only use one per surface)
  6. Wash hands regularly
  7. Clean multi-touch areas like door handles more regularly
  8. Make sure you let as much fresh air in as you can during a visit and after visitors have left, without getting cold, by opening windows and doors

We have a good stock of the Clinell Universal Wipes and find them quick and easy to use, plus we have the Clinell Antibacterial Wipes, Clinell Hand and Surface Spray and Clinell Hand Sanitiser Gel to complete our cleaning habits and routine.

We all want to be safe this Christmas, and I hate to think that I am missing a spot when it comes to cleaning my home, so this advice has been really useful and I hope it helps others too when preparing for the festive season and beyond.
