Cleaning recommendations

In the home, there are some well used (some often forgotten) areas that require greater cleaning attention right now.

Clean and disinfect these regularly throughout the day, generally after use:

  • Table tops
  • Kitchen bench tops
  • Bathroom vanity tops
  • Taps in kitchen and bathrooms
  • Toilets (seat, lid and flush)
  • Refrigerator and freezer door handles
  • Doorknobs and locks

Clean and disinfect these daily if used:

  • Hard dining chairs (seat, back and arms)
  • Light switches
  • Remote controls for TV and air-conditioning units
  • Game controllers
  • Oven door handles
  • Microwave door handles
  • Kettle
  • Toaster
  • Coffee machine touch areas
  • Lamps

Remember with electrical items, including switches, to wipe over with a cloth lightly dampened with disinfectant rather than spraying disinfectant directly onto these items. Electricity and liquids do not mix!

Add to the cleaning list any frequently used electronics (remembering these also don’t mix well with liquids).

How to disinfect your phone or tablet

  • Mix lemon myrtle disinfectant cleaner in a spray bottle at 25ml/litre of water (or about 2 teaspoons of disinfectant per cup)
  • If you have a cover on your phone or tablet, remove it
  • Mist the mixture onto a clean cloth or paper towel, so it is damp but not over wet
  • Wipe your device thoroughly but do not leave it wet
  • Pay special attention to the screen and buttons
  • Allow to air dry
  • Meanwhile spray your case thoroughly, particularly on the outside, and clean off with your cloth or paper towel. Leave to air dry before replacing on your device.

How to disinfect your computer

Ideally, this should be done once a week.

  • Mix lemon myrtle disinfectant cleaner in a spray bottle at 25ml/litre of water (or about 2 teaspoons of disinfectant per cup)
  • Mist the mixture onto a clean cloth or paper towel, so it is damp but not over wet
  • Thoroughly wipe the keyboard, and touchscreen if you have one. Pay special attention to where you rest your arm/hand
  • Thoroughly wipe your mouse/tracker pad
  • Thoroughly clean your mouse
  • Mist disinfecting mixture onto a cotton bud until lightly damp and clean any difficult to access areas, such as grooves in your mouse, and between the keys in your keyboard. Repeat with fresh cotton buds as necessary.
  • Finish using a clean, soft, dry towel.
