Did you know that the average desktop harbours up to 20,000 germs per square inch? That’s 400 times more germs than the average toilet seat!
If you’re stuck working from home due to COVID-19, it’s important that you know how to keep your home office clean and sanitised using the right products and methods. After all, a clean home office is vital to ensuring you and your family stays safe COVID-free during this difficult time.
Here’s a guide on how to clean your home office using Diggers Multi-Purpose Surface Cleaner.
1. Prepare your cleaning tools
Before you start cleaning your home office, make sure that you’re prepared for the occasion – and no, that doesn’t mean you have to wear a hazmat suit! It does mean, however, that you should invest in some disposable gloves, a cloth, and some Diggers Multi-Purpose Surface Cleaner.
Also remember to keep the windows wide open for good airflow, and avoid touching your face and eyes. These simple habits can go a long way towards stopping the spread of germs and infection.
2. Declutter your desk
The next step to a spotless home office space is to tidy up your desk and surrounding furniture.
If you’re stuck on where to start, collect any pens and pencils that may be scattered about the desk and organise them into a tin or pencil case. Then, dispose of any receipts or paperwork that you no longer need.
You’ll be surprised how much paper-junk you actually have laying around – collecting not just dust, but germs too! Also ensure that any post-it notes, dirty plates and coffee mugs are disposed of.
3. Dust Your Office
Keeping your office dust-free involves more than just wiping your desk items with a lint-free cloth. If you want to prevent dust from accumulating on your desk, you should focus on cleaning any surrounding areas – such as air vents, fans, and floors. These are responsible for the circulation of particles in the air which result in the dust on your desk.
Once you’ve dusted these areas, begin on your office furniture – including your computer, bookcase, desk and desk chair.
Disinfect Surfaces With MPSC
Now you’re ready to give it some Diggers!
To clean and disinfect your desk, and any other nearby surfaces, simply spray some Diggers Multi-Purpose Surface Cleaner onto those surfaces and wipe them with a clean lint-free cloth. Because the cleaner is made from methylated spirits, surfaces dry quickly – with no streaks or residue.
Because common viruses can survive on multiple different types of surfaces for at least three days, you should also ensure that any potentially contaminated surfaces are sanitised and cleaned thoroughly too.

If you’re like most office workers, then you know how stressful grime build-up on a mouse and smudges on the screen can be. The best thing about Diggers Isopropyl Alcohol is that you can use it to clean a variety of office surfaces – from laptops to mobile phones.
Diggers Isopropyl Alcohol sanitises as it cleans your workspace and its high evaporation rate makes it the perfect cleaner to ensure that your devices are not affected by moisture.
