You know you’re either living during a pandemic or over 30 when you get really excited by household cleaning products. Both are 100% true for me and I am grateful to have discovered Gonzo products. I generally try to keep a tidy home and deep cleanse but now it’s even more important.
Gonzo Natural Magic Disinfectant Spray has been a true game changer and something I have found myself really reaching for lately. It comes in two scents, Lavender and Citrus. I personally lean towards Lavender scents but both are incredibly strong and will help eliminate odors while they also kill 99.9% of bacteria. This spray kills anything ranging from E. Coli to Salmonella and is now EPA registered to kill Coronavirus on hard surfaces.
When I get home from the grocery store, I dump all my groceries on our kitchen floor. I proceed to wipe everything down, wash all our product, and stock them into our fridge. As a result, I have paranoia about our floors tracking in bacteria and the worst of all, Coronavirus! I have started using Gonzo Natural Magic to make sure that I’m really able to clean up after each trip.
Here are some general steps, per the wonderful Gonzo Team, on how to use:
- Pre-clean heavily soiled areas. I typically wipe away any dog hair (there’s a lot in my household.)
- Apply this ready to use product to disinfect hard, non-porous surfaces with a sponge, brush, cloth, mechanical spray device or hand pump trigger spray device. For spray applications, spray 6-8 inches from surface. Do not breathe in spray.
- Treated surfaces must remain wet for 10 minutes. I use this time to catch up on Instagram or emails!
- Wipe dry with a clean cloth or allow to air dry. I prefer to wipe mine off but both are safe!
- Repeat daily or when visibly dirty.
Another surface that gets particularly dirty is our dishwasher! The dogs like to rub their noses on it leaving fun markings and Charlie will use it as a place to help him stand. We also have water stains from just general use and it leaves behind a not so great streaky mess.
To clean, I follow the general steps laid out above. Here is the before, dingy and stained. Likely has some miscellaneous bacteria invisible to the naked eye.
I sprayed the Lavender scented solution on and let it soak for about 10 minutes before taking a paper towel to wipe it dry. Again, you can let it air dry but this surface felt like it would leave streaky stains if I didn’t wipe it down.
Here is our after! Much cleaner and most important, DISINFECTED!
Friendly reminder, DO NOT USE on your body or ingest! It is EPA certified to kill the Coronavirus on hard surfaces only so please stay safe everyone and get Gonzo!
