While disinfectant solutions eliminate germs, they don't leave behind a truly bare surface. They deposit a thin film that doesn't get wiped up, even after giving the surface a good polish.
The researchers say that the only meaningful way of reducing viral particles during the study, was through disinfection of the toilet, toilet water and nearby surfaces.
This collaboration serves as a testament to the power of industry innovation and teamwork between Cenobots.
Hotel, restaurant and café staff can get access to all the professional cleaning equipment they need for less as part of the offer, which is aimed at making sure they have everything in place to conduct their first deep clean after the festive season.
Welcome to the Cleanzine
One of the many advantages of the Internet is the ability it gives us to be able to see what's going on in the rest of the world - and I don't just mean the 'big' news, but the little things that may be of particular interest to us as individuals. This, amongst other things for me, is cleaning, hygiene, waste management, recycling and how these issues are tackled, along with the public perception of cleaning and the treatment of our environment by individuals.
It strikes me that there's a growing pattern of disrespect for our environment and with it those who are paid to maintain it. That a dirty environment affects all of us, means that there's a growing disrespect amongst some, for those who also occupy that environment. Is it just my perception of things, or simply down to what I'm reading? Do please let me know how you see things from wherever you are in the world.
Closer to home in a South West London borough, a man posted a pic in a social media group of a rubbish bin tipped over in an alleyway. It appeared to have been ridden into by a cyclist who may have been injured in the collision, as a bike was amongst the spilled rubbish. While the man was furious with the council, those commenting said they hoped he'd reported his findings and taken steps to prevent further accidents by moving the hazards. The consensus was: "It's all very well grumbling but we all have our part to play in improving things". Perhaps the tide's starting to turn?
