In today’s world, it’s important to keep your home clean and sanitised to prevent the spread of germs and viruses. With a little bit of effort, you can create a clean and healthy environment for you and your family. In this beginner’s guide, we’ll show you how to clean and sanitise your home to prevent the spread of germs and viruses, and we’ll do it in a fun and easy-going tone. So, let’s get started!

Section 1: Get the Right Cleaning Supplies

Before you start cleaning, it’s important to have the right cleaning supplies on hand. You’ll need cleaning products like eco-one Multi-Clean, disinfectant wipes, and foaming descaler. Make sure to also have a good vacuum cleaner and mop for deep cleaning. And don’t forget to stock up on gloves and bags. Our top pick is a cleaning caddy to make sure you have all your supplies in one place.

Section 2: Start with a Deep Clean

To prevent the spread of germs and viruses, start with a deep clean of your home. This means cleaning everything from top to bottom, including ceilings, walls, and floors. Vacuum carpets and rugs, wash curtains and bedding, and wipe down all surfaces with a disinfectant cleaner. Don’t forget to clean hard-to-reach areas like the tops of cabinets and under furniture.

Section 3: Focus on High-Touch Areas

Germs and viruses spread quickly on high-touch areas like doorknobs, light switches, and countertops. To keep these areas clean, wipe them down with a disinfectant wipe several times a day. You should also disinfect your phone, keys, and any other items you touch frequently.

Section 4: Use Natural Cleaning Products

If you’re looking for an eco-friendly option for cleaning and sanitising your home, consider using natural cleaning products like vinegar and baking soda. These products are safe for your family and the environment, and they’re just as effective as chemical cleaners. Mix vinegar and water to create a natural disinfectant spray, and use baking soda to clean sinks and tubs. However, for the best of both worlds, check out our eco-one range of plastic-free cleaning chemicals.

Section 5: Don’t Forget about Your Appliances

Your appliances can also harbour germs and viruses, so make sure to clean them regularly. Wipe down your fridge, oven, and microwave with a disinfectant cleaner, and clean your dishwasher with a cup of vinegar and a hot water cycle. You should also clean your washing machine and dryer regularly to prevent the spread of germs.

Section 6: Develop a Cleaning Routine

To keep your home clean and germ-free, it’s important to develop a cleaning routine. Set aside time each week to deep clean and disinfect your home, and make sure to clean high-touch areas several times a day. You should also encourage your family members to wash their hands frequently and practice good hygiene habits.


Keeping your home clean and sanitised doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With the right cleaning supplies and a little bit of effort, you can create a healthy and germ-free environment for you and your family. So, don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty and start cleaning!
