How To Keep Your Home Germ Free!

Even though we are leaving the coldest months of the year and slowly edging our way into Spring (even if the weather doesn’t think so) the winter lurgies are still hanging around.


Places that germs cling to –


  • Light switches
  • Door panes
  • Door knobs
  • Fronts of appliances (buttons and switches)
  • Mobile phones
  • Drawer knobs
  • Staircase railing
  • Remotes and controllers


The best way to tackle these areas is by making a chemical free cleaner. As we touch these areas with our hands, we don’t want nasty cleaning chemicals transferring from the surface to our mouths. Here at SPh2ONGE, we know how important it is to keep our families happy and healthy.


Here are our two favourite DIY ‘clean’ cleaners –


  • 1 ¼ cups water / ½ cup white vinegar / 5 drops of essential oil (we love lavender!)
  • 2 cups of water / 1 table spoon liquid castile soap / 2 drops of essential oil


We also have a favourite product to use with these sprays (it’s fantastic.. if we do say so ourselves! Microfibre cloths are extremely trendy in the cleaning community the moment and we have our brilliant SPh2ONGE luxury microfibre cloth that is great for cleaning up those nasty germs. Simply spray the cloth with one of our DIY cleaners and get to work on those pesky areas.


We would suggest a daily clean of these places to keep and germs at bay. To make this easier, allocate everyone in your family a place to clean (give kids the remotes and controllers!) so at the end of the day you can all run round and have it done in a flash. If your kids are proving difficult to get cleaning, then turn it into a game and the person who cleans their surface the quickest gets a treat (or a point on the chart if you use that method).
