Cleaning bathrooms with ClO2 & Microfiber

The surfaces found in bathrooms: porcelain, ceramic tile, chrome and stainless steel are all designed to be non-porous and generally germ-free. Cleaning with microfiber and a 100ppm solution (1g in 1 qt of water) will help to preserve that state.

Bathrooms - A Germs Favorite Breeding Ground...

Bathrooms are notorious breeding grounds for germs and bacteria. From the moment we enter, we are surrounded by potential sources of contamination. The most obvious culprit is the toilet, which can contain fecal matter and urine, both of which may harbor harmful microorganisms. Flushing the toilet releases a cloud of microscopic water droplets called aerosols, which can contain bacteria and viruses that become airborne and settle on surfaces within the bathroom.

Other germ-ridden areas within a bathroom include the sink, faucets, and soap dispensers. These surfaces are frequently touched by multiple individuals, transferring germs easily. Additionally, damp areas such as shower stalls and bath mats provide a perfect platform for the growth of mold, mildew, and fungi, which can cause various health issues including respiratory problems.

To minimize the spread of germs in bathrooms, regular cleaning and disinfecting is crucial. It is important to regularly sanitize surfaces such as toilets, sinks, and faucets, using appropriate cleaning agents that target bacteria and viruses. In public restrooms, frequent restocking of soap dispensers and toilet paper can ensure proper hygiene practices are followed. To further reduce the risk of contamination, individuals should adopt good personal hygiene habits like washing hands thoroughly with soap and hot water after using the bathroom, using hand sanitizer when necessary, and avoiding touching the face while in the bathroom. Additionally, regular ventilation of the bathroom can help remove moisture, reducing the growth of mold and mildew.

what is microfiber

Microfiber - As Small as 1/100th the Diameter of a Human Hair and Able to Hold 8 TIMES its weight in Water & Soil

Microfiber cloths are made of incredibly fine synthetic fibers, typically measuring less than one denier in thickness. By comparison, a human hair is roughly 20 deniers thick. The fibers are extruded, creating a grooves that are able to gently scrape soil from hard surfaces and densely packed together, creating a large surface area that can pick up and trap dirt, dust, and other particles with ease.

When you clean with a microfiber cloth, the numerous tiny fibers scrape up and lock in dirt particles. These fibers also create a static charge - complementing the charge of Envirotab, which attracts and holds the dirt securely in place, preventing it from being redistributed on the surface you are cleaning. This unique ability to trap and hold onto dirt and dust is what makes microfiber cloths so effective at removing even the smallest particles from surfaces.

Furthermore, microfiber cloths are extremely absorbent, capable of holding up to eight times their weight in liquid. This allows them to easily wipe up spills and moisture from surfaces without leaving any residue behind. Whereas microfiber requires only 20% of the water and cleaning solution as other materials (like cotton), microfiber reduces the need for harsh chemicals that can potentially harm surfaces or the environment.

The fibers in microfiber cloths also generate a mechanical cleaning action as you rub them against a surface. This friction removes even stubborn stains and grime much more effectively than traditional cleaning cloths.

Overall, the unique construction of microfiber cloths makes them an incredibly effective cleaning tool when paired with chlorine dioxide tablets. They are able to capture microscopic particles - even bacteria, yeast, fungi and viruses, absorb significant amounts of liquid, and efficiently remove dirt and stains with minimal effort.
