Protect the skin with disposable gloves

Disposable gloves offer protection against water, discolouration and odours. They do a good job when cleaning. It is important that you dispose of them in the rubbish bag after wearing them once.

What are disposable gloves suitable for?

Disposable gloves are mainly used in the medical field. They prevent infection through contact with secretions, blood and contaminated objects. In the household, you wear them when you cut odour-forming or staining food, clean up spills or wash dishes.

Why is it important to wear disposable gloves?

If your hands are wet for a long time, the skin softens and becomes dry. This increases the permeability to various substances that cause irritation and allergies.

Tip: Thicker household gloves are recommended for cleaning surfaces and floors. This will prevent your skin from coming into contact with chemicals and water. They are longer and also protect the forearms. Aggressive cleaning agents in particular lead to unsightly allergies and contact eczema, which you can avoid by wearing suitable gloves.

What do customers look for when choosing disposable gloves?

There is a choice of products made of latex, nitrile and vinyl, with or without powder.

  • Disposable latex gloves: These models are among the classics. Powdered inner surface adheres less to the skin. This allows you to slip into the glove without any problems. Powder-free products offer the advantage that they bind less latex. This reduces the risk of allergy. The disposable latex glove is thicker and more durable than the other materials. It is very stretchy, comfortable and offers good protection.
  • Nitrile gloves: If you have a latex allergy, go for these models as they do not cause allergies. They offer protection against chemicals and oils. Some of them are suitable for cleaning with aggressive cleaning agents. It is advisable to follow the manufacturer's recommendations. The disposable gloves are tear-resistant and provide good tactile sensitivity. Compared to latex gloves, they are less stretchy.
  • Vinyl gloves: Disposable vinyl gloves are the least expensive option. They are suitable for brief contact with acids and alkalis when wiping surfaces or washing up.

Gentle cleaning with the right wipes

Cloths for different purposes are available in numerous materials:

  • Leather
  • Cotton
  • Linen
  • Bamboo
  • Microfibre
  • Cellulose
  • Blended fabric
  • Microfibre with PVA (polyvinyl alcohol)

In addition, you purchase antibacterial wipes with silver particles. Moist disposable wipes are soaked with a cleaning agent. They are used for quick cleaning in between. After use, throw them into the rubbish bag. You can clean dishes and other surfaces with sponges that have a good grip.

Popular cloths include:

  • Cotton cloths for drying and re-polishing surfaces.
  • Kitchen rolls for cleaning windows or removing stains
  • Microfibre cloths as all-rounders for bathrooms and kitchens

Why do you need cloths?

They are essential for thorough cleaning. You apply cleaning agents or disinfectants with the moistened cloths. You wipe surfaces or use floor cloths to clean parquet, laminate and tiles.

Which cloths are best?

Basically, it depends on the intended use. Highly absorbent microfibre cloths that you can use with or without water are suitable as all-rounders. You use them to polish mirrors, glass and chrome surfaces. They also serve as dishcloths or floor cloths. Another use is for dry dusting, as dust and lint adhere well to the material. Conventional cleaning cloths smear dirt. A microfibre cloth traps the dirt. It leaves a clean, streak- and lint-free surface.

What should users bear in mind when using microfibre cloths?

Wet the cloths only slightly with cleaning agent. For light soiling, a damp cloth is often sufficient. Do not wash them with fabric softener, as it clogs the pores of the material.

The best cleaning agent for every occasion

Cleaning in the household involves various activities, be it mopping the floors, washing up or cleaning glass surfaces and windows. Cleaning agents are suitable for the targeted cleaning of different areas. You can use them to remove dirt, germs and calcification. Offices are a popular conurbation for germs, which spread quickly via door handles and other shared objects. That's why regular cleaning of surfaces with cloths and cleaners is recommended. Emptying the rubbish bags in the evening prevents foul odours from taking hold. In addition, you will not attract fruit flies.

For what purposes do you need cleaning products?

There is a wide range of cleaning agents that you use depending on their purpose:

  • Cleaners for the kitchen: here you need agents that ensure food safety. Dishwashing detergent with grease dissolving power is suitable for heavy soiling. The trend is towards harmless, sustainable products. They harm neither the environment nor the user. Caring substances are gentle on the skin. If in doubt, wear disposable gloves when cleaning dishes. Use special kitchen cleaners in spray bottles for surfaces. These effectively remove dirt and oil.
  • Bathroom cleaners: Bathroom cleaners remove soap residues and limescale. Some of them have a disinfecting effect. There are special cleaners for the toilet that reach under the rim of the bowl. Products containing chemical substances are often used for cleaning. It is advisable to wear gloves or to use eco-cleaners.
  • Glass cleaner: These products are suitable for cleaning windows, glass surfaces and mirrors. You will achieve a streak-free shine. Use the spray bottles in combination with cloths.
  • Floor cleaner: You can order this for different surfaces. It is important that you use special products for parquet and marble.
  • All-purpose cleaners: These are suitable for tiles and for cleaning surfaces.

The best dishwasher tabs for a shiny clean

Dishwasher tabs are essential for thoroughly cleaning dishes in the machine. Good products combine various properties. They contain detergent, salt and rinse aid. Additional substances protect the glass from corrosion, increase the shine of stainless steel and strengthen the cleaning effect on stubborn encrustations. If these already work at low temperatures, you save electricity during cleaning.

Note: Only use the dishwasher with special cleaners to avoid damaging the appliance. Make sure that the tabs do not get damp during storage, otherwise they will not dissolve properly.

Why are high-quality dishwasher tabs important?

Good products care for the machine and give the dishes a shine and cleanliness. This prevents tiresome re-polishing. The articles remove tea and coffee stains as well as dried-on food residues. When using the dishwasher tabs, make sure that they contain salt and rinse aid. You need these two components for a clean, crystal-clear result. In the case of mono tabs that only contain detergent and glass protector, fill them separately. If you use multi-wash tabs, you do not need any additional machine care.

Descaler for tasty drinks

At the latest when the morning coffee no longer tastes good, it is a good idea to clean the machine with descaler. Over time, stubborn limescale builds up in kettles, tea kettles and coffee machines, adversely affecting the taste of the beverage. The descaler increases the performance of the machines and prolongs their life. The products are biodegradable and food safe. You can obtain them in the form of tabs, as a liquid or as a powder. When using the product, make sure that the machine is rinsed several times with clean water to remove any residues of the product.
