The Importance Of Using The Right Cleaning Equipment

Apr 13, 2008
Do you often use your kitchen cleaning spray to clean your bathroom? Or perhaps you use washing up liquid, diluted in plenty of hot water to clean or mop your floor? How about using the same dish sponge for the past two months, seeing that it has worn down, discoloured and even has some nasty bits stuck onto it? Do all of these things sound familiar to you? This is the importance of knowing what cleaning equipment to use for a specific purpose.

Some people feel that just because they have a spray or detergent, they are all roughly the same things and it would not matter whether they used each product for the wrong things. However, some cleaning products are made to tackle specific types of germs that linger in specific places. Using a kitchen cleaning spray will not get rid of the mould and bacteria that develop in the bathroom. Nor will using washing up liquid clean your floor as effectively as a proper floor-cleaning product.

Kitchen

Using the right cleaning equipment is an effective and beneficial way of keeping up with health and hygiene. Many people are unaware of the amount of germs that spread around in one room, particularly the kitchen. This is where most people congregate to eat their food, therefore it is imperative that this is the one part of the room which remains clean at all times to avoid nasty illnesses.

Always regularly replace cleaning cloths, towels and scrubs. These tend to have bacteria and germs living within it, therefore it is good to have these replaced as often as possible. Possibly on a monthly basis, even if you do wash them regularly.

Bathroom

Stick to using bathroom-cleaning equipment in the bathroom. There is nothing more unhygienic than cross using equipments and cleaning products, quite simply because you spreading germs around. Keep all of your cleaning facilities separate from each other; it is safer and generally hygienic. The chances are you will have a cleaner bathroom if you use the right products. Bathroom cleaners are made differently as some have added bleach, which can be dangerous in certain places like the kitchen.

Dishes

Everyone should know by now that using a dishcloth is considered one of the most unhygienic and risky of all things to use when washing dishes. However, there are a fair few people who have continued on with using this as a cleaning device, the best option is to buy disposable sponges, scrubs or scourers. Use them every weekly or every two weeks. Germs tend to linger and fester within the material, no matter how many times you wash it.

Keep to air-drying dishes rather than towel drying. This will ensure you do not further spread germs even after washing. This also gives you less to do! However, do not leave them to dry for too long, half hour or longer, depending on how long they take to dry is about as long as you need before storing them away. Some dishes take no longer than ten minutes; again, this is dependent upon the size of the dish, but you can judge this yourself.
