Several of our Earthwise household cleaning products have been proven to kill 99.9% of germs. These include our Tea Tree & Thyme Multi-Purpose Spray Cleaner, Kitchen Cleaner, Toilet Cleaners, Disinfectant and Shower/Bathroom Cleaner which are effective in sanitising household surfaces.
COVID-19 is a new organism and unfortunately, there has been little commercial testing of products against this virus. We do know that our products eliminate bacteria and effectively sanitise surfaces, and therefore would expect our cleaning products to be effective against the virus.
The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to follow the World Health Organisations advice. WHO encourages people to wash their hands often with soap and water, clean all ‘high-touch’ household surfaces with cleaning products and regularly washing clothes to reduce risk to families.
Our Earthwise Nourish soaps and handwashes are effective at stopping the spread of Coronavirus. The virus sticks to the skin (glue-like) then soap and surfactants dissolve the protective envelope of the virus and it essentially becomes inactive. Plant-based soaps and surfactants, like their petrochemical equivalents, still contain the properties required to do this.
We highly recommend the Ministry of Health and World Health Organisation as reliable sources to look at for any COVID-19 queries and recommend the video link below that explains why soaps are so effective with COVID-19.
We hope this helps you and safe wishes to you and your family.
