There is only one way to protect yourself from seasonal viruses: by disinfection!

Posted on10/23/2020

In addition to this year’s Covid-19 epidemic, the usual seasonal autumn and winter viruses such as influenza or stomach flu are again lurking in ambush. There is only one way to prevent from being infected: sanitizing and getting rid of superstitions such as the following:

Many people think that an environment-friendly household disinfectant can impossibly be effective against seasonal viruses.

Wrong: For some years now, more and more people keep asking for environment-friendly disinfectants, even for cleaning purposes and especially when influenza, colds or stomach flus linger around. And rightly so, because the cleaning products we often use are just as harmful to us as they are to our environment. In Switzerland, labels do not always contain the information we need to be aware of their potential health hazards. The compounds and dyes that many products contain in addition can cause allergic reactions and respiratory problems. Surfaces to which scrubbing cleansers are applied to are likely to be damaged, due to their abrasive effects. Are we willing to put our health at risk merely by trying to protect it? Of course not. And that is the reason why environment-friendly cleaning products are becoming more and more popular. We often resort to good old granny-made remedies: neutral flake soap, white vinegar or baking soda... But beware, apart from the frequently unpleasant smell, they are usually not free of health hazards, especially when adding, for example, certain essential oils. What is the best solution? aquama® is what you need! Disinfectant and antiseptic at the same time, it contains no volatile compounds and is much more effective than ordinary bleaches. Thus, it is THE ideal product to protect us against seasonal viruses.

One is likely to bring home viruses clinging on our clothes.

True: Coats, gloves, hats... We quite often wear different kind of clothes all depending on the weather and temperature changes in public transports, at supermarkets and in school for example. Our clothes will inevitably get in contact with some contaminated surfaces, often unhealthy to say the least. Influenza virus is responsible for the seasonal flu and will survive for more than eight hours on a single piece of clothing. Rotavirus is responsible for most stomach flus and can even remain active for several weeks. So do not refrain from using the aquama® Indigo© solution to disinfect clothes, household textiles and fabrics (all except silk). Make it a habit to give a short shot of aquama® spray in the wardrobe from time to time for quick sanitization.


Disinfecting the kids’ room can be dangerous for them.

Wrong: Small kids will spend their time on the floor putting everything within reach into their mouth, thus making worried parents scared of the outcome. Stomach flu can indeed be a real health hazard for the little ones, who are prone to dehydration, especially in case of bronchiolitis. It is therefore essential to clean the kids’ toys and room as effectively as possible with a suitable detergent to ensure that the surfaces they touch do not contain any hazardous products. This is the case with the water, salt and electricity-made aquama® solution which is 100% biodegradable and without any health hazards at all. It eliminates viruses and bacteria in a jiffy. With aquama®, seasonal viruses are not scary anymore!
