One thing that has become clear in the era of COVID-19 is the importance of having disinfectant products like iCloth around to keep surfaces clean. Over the past year, our eyes have been opened to just how much bacteria there is on every surface and how important it is to safeguard against spreading potentially harmful germs.

Why worry about germs on surfaces?

There has been a lot of confusion about how long germs live on hard surfaces, such as doorknobs, countertops and even on packages you receive in the mail. As such, we have all been in the habit of wiping things down with disinfectants like iCloth to make sure harmful germs aren’t spreading. But is it really necessary?

The fact is that viruses such as COVID-19 can survive on hard surfaces for hours or even days. If someone coughs into their hand, and then touches surfaces like doorknobs, the germs stay there. So, you do want to wipe down doorknobs and light switches pretty regularly to be sure to kill those germs.

With iCloth, it is easier to maintain cleanliness in your home or office just by getting into the habit of wiping down commonly touched surfaces.

What is the best way to clean surfaces?

Any product that contains at least 70% isopropyl alcohol is great for killing germs. But it’s important to be careful with electronics and screens so as not to damage or scratch them. In the need for a safe yet disinfecting product, iCloth is ready for the job—at school, at the office and at home.

The iCloth already contains isopropyl alcohol on them, and they come in a variety of sizes to suit every disinfecting need. Here are some of the advantages of the iCloth:

  • Individually wrapped: It’s easier and more convenient to clean glasses, smartphones and tablets when you can carry small, individually wrapped wipes with you in your pocket, purse or car.
  • Large Cloths: These cloths are ideal for larger screens, including interactive flat panels, computer screens, monitors, TVs and more. Although they are big enough to really clean the surface with just one wipe they are also individually wrapped for easy portability and maximum convenience. This is also a great wipe to take with you on airplanes to wipe down your seat and the flip down surface that you might be using.
  • Windows and counters: To avoid streaks on windows and other surfaces, this special lint and streak free cloth should be used.

Will germicides impact my allergies?

Many people are allergic to strong fumes from cleaning agents. One of the benefits of using pre-wrapped wipes like those that come from iCloth is that they are gentle in the amount of cleaning agents on every wipe. They don’t harm or streak surfaces and they don’t have powerful odors that can make your allergies go crazy.

One of the benefits of everyone being so careful about spreading germs is that there was a dramatic decrease in the number of flu cases in the U.S. Instead of the typical 45 million cases that doctors see, this past winter, there were only 925 cases reported by Johns Hopkins. The reason? People took care to disinfect surfaces, wear a face covering and social distance. As precautionary mandates are beginning to ease, using the iCloth is a great way to make sure any commonly touched surfaces in the office and the classroom are cleaned properly to prevent spreading potentially harmful germs.
