2. Disinfect your kitchen tools and chopping boards.

Despite washing your cutting boards and kitchen tools thoroughly, bacteria from meats and seafood may still linger on the surface. Cleaning your chopping boards, especially butcher’s blocks, with bleach gives it a deep clean and disinfects the surface. Mix 1 teaspoon of bleach with 2 litres of water and scrub your cutting board’s surface with the solution. Be sure not to let it soak! Wipe clean with a damp kitchen towel and dry thoroughly.

SA8 All Fabric Bleach can also be used to scrub down your countertops. All you need to do is sprinkle some powder onto the surface and scrub it with a damp sponge or cloth. After that, rinse it well using clean water.


5. Remove unpleasant bin odours

Whether it’s for regular rubbish or stinky nappies, SA8 bleach can help. Just mix 45 ml of bleach with 1 litre of water and use it to wash the inside and outside of your bin. Once you’re done, rinse with water and let it air-dry before using.

Blot the carpet dry and you’re done!


Extra tips

Before you start the cleaning spree, here are a few things you should keep in mind when it comes to oxygen bleach:

  • While oxygen bleach is versatile, it does not replace an everyday multi-purpose cleaner. So when it comes to home maintenance, choose regular cleaners and only opt for bleach when you encounter hard-to-remove stains.
  • Whenever you’re mixing bleach with water, we recommend using warm to hot water to ensure that the powder dissolves thoroughly.
  • Some stains might require stronger, longer or even multiple treatments. However, always start with the weakest solution and ramp it up as needed.
  • Although oxygen bleach is non-toxic, you should use gloves to protect your hands from irritation if you intend to use it for a long period of time.
