Cleaning Materials & Rubbish

Use the right materials for the job:

  • Detergents such as washing up liquids are designed to dissolve grease, oil and dirt.
  • Disinfectants, such as bleach, are designed to kill germs. These are powerful
    agents and should not be used indiscriminately.
  • Anti-bacterial cleaners are types of disinfectant and can kill germs. They often
    come in spray form.

Disinfectants and anti-bacterial cleaners won't work if you don't use them properly, so always follow the instructions.

Always clean surfaces first with detergent to remove any grease and dirt, and then apply disinfectant to kill any remaining germs.

Use separate cloths or sponges for separate tasks;
where practicable use disposable.

cloths. If using them more than once, wash in hot water and
soap then place in a suitable disinfectant, rinse
thoroughly and allow to dry.

Do not soak overnight as disinfectant solutions
weaken and may allow bacteria to grow.
