HOW many of us spray a surface with disinfectant and seconds later wipe it down with a cloth?
Well, according to one cleaning expert, that’s the worst thing you can do.
Kacie Stephens, director of Australian company The Cleaning Co, warned about splashes and sprints on TikTok.
“So you think you’re a cleanliness freak?” She began.
“Here’s a hard truth from a professional cleaner.”
Speaking of a video of her spraying sanitizer on a dirty toilet, she continued, “Just because you’re using a sanitizer spray doesn’t mean you’re sanitizing something.”
It’s all about reading product labels, Kacie explained.
“You have to read the labels,” she added.
“These supermarket sprays need to be left on a surface for ten minutes to kill all germs.”
People quickly took to the comments section to weigh in on Kacie’s reveal.
“I’m so mad,” one person wrote, to which Kacie replied, “I’m so sorry!”
“I can’t spray sanitizer on the toilet and leave it for 10 minutes, my kids would definitely have to use it during that time,” added another.
“I went to dental junior school so I know about it, but I’m sure a lot of people don’t… CONTACT TIME IS VERY IMPORTANT,” wrote a third.
“We had to learn this in cosmetology school and cleaning sanitizing sanitizing are all completely different things lol people don’t read instructions,” commented another.
“So you’re telling me… my toilet, which I cleaned thoroughly today, is still dirty?” interviewed another person.
“Yeah, I definitely say don’t lick it,” Kacie replied.
