Domestos wipes are an incredibly versatile and convenient way to both clean and disinfect surfaces in your home while getting rid of 99.9% of germs, including E.Coli, Salmonella, MRSA and Flu Virus (H1N1). Domestos bleach wipes are designed for cleaning regularly used hard surfaces such as tabletops, doorknobs, toilets, even TV remotes. They won’t work on soft furnishings or fabrics, and you shouldn’t use them directly on food, for example, to clean an apple, nor food preparation areas.
Cleaning with disinfectant wipes
If there’s a lot of grime or dirt on the surface you want to clean, scrape it away first.
Break the seal on the packet and remove a single surface wipe.
Then rub your wipe over the surface you want to clean. Repeat as necessary.
The entire surface should become wet with the disinfectant liquid, and you should leave it to dry on its own while it kills off any germs.
Remember to wash your hands after use.
Do antibacterial wipes kill viruses?
The short answer is no, not necessarily. Antibacterial wipes kill bacteria, not viruses, and are usually intended for cleaning your hands. Sanitizing wipes are also usually intended for hands rather than surfaces. Some wipes include a combination of factors so it’s always best to read the packaging to check.
Domestos disinfectant wipes kill 99.9% of all germs, including viruses, so they’re ideal for disinfecting hard surfaces in your home.
Using surface wipes on your toilet
Disinfectant wipes are ideal for ensuring that all of your toilet is clean and virtually germ-free – and give you even more ammunition to keep menacing nasties at bay.
First, use Domestos thick bleach in the toilet bowl, taking care to squirt up under the rim.
Your Domestos toilet wipes come into their own when you use them to wipe the toilet seat and lid.
Remember to clean underneath as well as on top, and don’t forget the outside of the bowl and cistern.
No need to need to wipe the surface dry afterwards – just leave it for a few seconds while the disinfectant solution does its germ-killing work, and it will dry on its own.
Looking after your disinfectant wipes
Always remember to seal your pack of Domestos wipes each time you take one out – this will prevent them drying out.
