MASK wearing, hand washing, sanitising; the routines that have been cascaded into our consciousness due to COVID-19.
They are here to stay for a while. And why not, since they are generally good habits.
But it can get wearisome having to keep the required level of cleanliness in your surrounding environment, especially since you don’t know who’s been near someone with COVID-19 and what unwelcome “guests” may have tagged along home.
Keeping your home and office environments clean and germ-free will be a major preoccupation now and in the foreseeable future.
And while you want to be free of the SARSCoV-2 virus at home, you don’t want to live in a chemical zone either.
Nothing like being in a pleasantly fragrant and clean environment. That’s been the objective of Okada Ecotech, which has been researching and developing insect control and plant enhancers in a socially responsible manner. It’s Bio-X range is an environmentally friendly, non-poisonous and water-based solution that has been used for more than 2 decades.
It has recently released its range of domestic products, Bio-X Kleanze Air. This multi-purpose, water-based, non-toxic solution will take care of insects, fungus, bacteria, viruses and unpleasant odours in homes and small public spaces.
Its botanical extracts are non-poisonous and free from DEET, chlorine and alcohol, and kills more than 99.9% of bacteria and viruses while clearing the air of any unpleasantness. It is on the NEA interim list of household products for surface disinfection of the COVID-19 virus.
Bio-X Kleanze is available as aerosols and in a solution that can be diluted and used in a humidifier which quietly puffs a fine spray into the air. The two fragrances — lavender and pine — gently fill the air with a delicate aroma while aggressively going to work on the unwelcome elements in the air.
Available in green and purple, the humidifiers can be recharged by a USB C cable.
There’s a pouch available which lets you carry it around. This is handy when you’re in a car and would like to clean up your personal space. The humidifier fits snugly in the cup holders and can puff some fragrant ambience into the cabin.
