How to wipe down your surfaces correctly

How you wipe down and clean surfaces makes a big difference. 

The key is to avoid recontaminating surfaces by wiping over the same area twice with a contaminated cloth.

So what is the correct way? Spray with a disinfectant, let sit for 10 seconds and then wipe down in one direction using an “S” shape. Wiping in an 'S' shape prevents re-contamination and will ensure the surface is well-covered with the cleaning product.

If you are using a reusable cloth, remember to wash it afterwards in hot water and let it dry before using again.

To disinfect surfaces while on the road you can use Happy Bee’s surface spray and the washable organic bamboo cloth supplied in our Botanical Sanitiser Bundle
