Let's beat this thing Australia!

Wipe your hard surfaces at home

It's up to us Australia! Let's beat this thing!

14 August 2020

Wow, who would have thought? At the same time last year would you have thought in only 12 months we would be in the midst of a once in 100 year global pandemic? I’m pretty sure it wasn’t in my schedule of events.

Let’s face it, life has changed significantly for all of us in just a few short months since March 2020.

For the large majority of Australian’s most of us have had to change our habits dramatically, particularly for those of us that live in the city centres across Australia.

We’ve been given an opportunity to reset. To change the way we do things day-to-day. More time at home means more time to focus on the things you may have thought about, but never had time to do like, learning how to bake some bread, paint a portrait, organise your files, clean out your cupboards. Take some time to enjoy the ‘slow down’. We'll be back into the mad rush before you know it.

McLintocks Vanilla Fresh will be with you during your journey. As we’ve all been spending more time at home, you should have no more excuses for keeping on top of your daily cleaning routine. Good hygiene practice at home is where it all begins. Give the hard surfaces you use throughout the day a once-over and wipe, morning and night, particularly your food preparation areas. Food prep areas should be cleaned before and after each meal. Give your door knobs and appliance handles like your refrigerator and microwave a once-over and wipe with McLintocks Vanilla Fresh.

To penetrate surfaces like cutting boards in your kitchen for a deep clean spray McLintocks Vanilla Fresh and leave for 2 minutes to kill up to 99.9% of germs and harmful bacterial.

Together we’ll get through this Australia. Don't forget good hand hygiene, social distancing (stay 1.5m apart) and stay safe!

Some important information about you should know about McLintocks Vanilla Fresh.

Vanilla Fresh is an ethanol based sanitiser which has been tested against general pathogenic bacteria and proven to kill 99.9% of these pathogens. The product has not yet been laboratory tested against Coronavirus (COVID-19) so the total effectiveness in killing this virus on surfaces is really unknown. 
 
Having said that, ethanol at a concentration of greater than 60% is known to be able to knock out certain viruses and is known to be effective in attacking the envelope structure of Coronavirus (COVID-19), hence ethanol based hand sanitisers are very effective in reducing the spread of the virus.
 
Vanilla Fresh is not as concentrated as 60% but would potentially have some sanitising effect against the virus, as mentioned we have never had it tested for this but in theory, should have some effectiveness - to what extent we cannot clarify.
