How to mix javel water is quite simple. With the percentage instructed to bleach clothes printed on the product label can be used for daily cleaning. If used for the purpose of weekly disinfection, we will mix with the rate doubled. For example, to bleach clothes, the manufacturer instructs to phase 2 caps for 1 liter of water, for the purpose of disinfection we mix 4 caps of bottles for 1 liter of water.

Toys should be washed before soaking in the demolition solution. After soaking in disinfectant solution for 30 minutes, remove and rinse with clean water, then dry and then let baby play. In cleaning homes and surfaces, note the following:

- Pre-wipe with water and soap to remove dust and organic substances before wiping with disinfectant solution.

- Use 2 buckets, 1 bucket containing disinfectant solution and 1 bucket of water to discharge dirt. Soak the wipes in the disinfectant solution to wipe, when the towel is dry or see a dirty towel, rinse with water when rinsing it back into the disinfectant solution, do so until it is done. Finally wipe off with clean water.

In order to ensure the concentration of disinfectants, it is recommended to buy products with well-known brands, produced by large factories ... In the use of disinfectants, gloves should be worn during mixing and cleaning. And soak in order to avoid skin irritation and avoid water disinfection. In case of contact with the disinfectant, wash the eyes several times with clean water and see a specialist if necessary. In storage, separate areas of disinfectants and sanitizing equipment should be kept out of the reach of children and not to be confused with food and drinks.

In summary, the antiseptic cleaning of children's surfaces, floors, toys is very important. This is one of the measures to help children prevent hand-foot-mouth disease. This can be done to protect the health of our children.
