This way you can be sure that your home will be completely disinfected, clean and protected from all viruses without harming your health!

2. When cleaning your bathroom, get rid of mold!

Despite regular cleaning of your bathroom, do you notice traces of mold starting to grow? You are not the only one! According to the FOPH, almost one in five homes in Switzerland and other European countries are affected by dampness and mold problems. The larger the household surfaces affected, the greater the health risk, ranging from simple eye irritations to chronic bronchitis – even more dangerous during Covid-19.

How can one get rid of mold with a good natural disinfectant? If you only have small marks on your joints or ceilings, simply spray the aquama® Indigo solution directly onto the mold. Leave it on for 15 minutes, wipe off and repeat the process. Are your moldy surfaces too big? Dilute the solution 50% in water, wipe with a sponge soaked in the antibacterial liquid, let stand, then wipe with a cloth and repeat as many times as necessary.
