If you’re the kind of person who loves to learn the stories behind how we got to where we are today, then you’re going to enjoy our little look back to where the steam cleaner first came from. So, let’s see when a mop and bucket failed to cut it, and how steam became the ultimate cleaning solution…
The Covid-19 epidemic has got us all upping our cleaning game, and rightly so. Many of us are spending more time in our homes than we probably ever imagined, which means cleaning needs to be kept on top of more regularly, too. And as we’re now much more aware (and admittedly afraid) of germs, it’s tempting to reach for the strongest chemical cleaning agents we can find. But, while we’re advocates for deep cleaning, we’re also really passionate about environmentally friendly cleaning too. Which means ditching the harsh chemicals and using eco-friendly alternatives that are just as effective.
Coronavirus (COVID-19): How to protect yourself, your family and your home
The ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 Coronavirus is leading people to become more cleanliness and hygiene conscious – as well as prompting people to ‘panic’ buy cleaning products.
So, we wanted to help put your mind at rest and inform you of the most effective ways to protect yourself and others, plus tell you about the best cleaning solutions for sanitising your home.
If you haven’t fallen ill this winter, you’re one of the lucky few. It’s the time of year, when the common cold and seasonal flu start to rear their ugly heads.
People tend to get ill in winter, as the harsh weather plays havoc on our immune system, which means viruses spread and multiply easily. But that’s not the only reason. The cold weather also forces people to stay inside, in enclosed spaces, which increases the chances of infection.
These germs can spread like wildfires, whether it’s from person to person or from touching unclean surfaces. And once one family member gets the sniffles or that chesty cough, before you know it, your whole household has fallen victim.
Flu season is more than a nuisance, it can affect your livelihood too. It’s one of the main reasons why children miss school and adults miss work during winter months.
