Are you aware that there is a difference between cleaning and disinfecting?

That may seem like a silly question and yeah, we probably know that there is a difference but don’t think about it. We should and here’s why.

Cleaning is the process of removing soil from a surface, soil that can harbor E. coli, Salmonella, Influenza and other germs.

Disinfecting is the process of killing these germs.

By cleaning well we allow disinfecting agents we sue to work more effectively than if we only disinfect.

There are many ‘all-purpose’ and ‘multipurpose’ products on the market that can clean and disinfect but many of these contain harsh and often toxic chemicals, things you don’t want your small children getting into.

For a healthy home using green or DIY products it may be necessary at times to clean then disinfect surfaces that have been exposed to or could harbor more dangerous germs.
