Playgrounds are one of the hardest areas to disinfect. Do you know that toilets are cleaned and disinfected MORE than playgrounds?

 

With outdoor playgrounds, it is worse. There is a constant risk of a child coming in contact with fecal matter from birds and other animals when the child is climbing on equipment. The climate is another challenge:  the hot and humid weather in Singapore is the exact kind of environment that bacteria thrives in.

The dirtiest (high-contact) areas at a playground are:

  • Swings
  • Seesaws
  • Slides

It is reported that there is "over 52,000 times more bacteria at a playground than a typical home toilet seat”. Bacteria found at playgrounds are Salmonella, Shigella, Hepatitis A and E.coli. And children can ingest all this bacteria if they put their hands in their mouths.

As parents, we always want to protect our children.

Here are 3 quick and useful tips to help protect our little kiddos:

  • Educate them to not touch their face (and especially mouth) when playing
  • Wash hands before and after play time
  • Use a non-alcohol, non-toxic disinfectant that will kill germs at a fast and effective rate

BioCair Disinfectant Pocket Spray and BioActive Pocket Spray are both non-alcohol, non-toxic and child-friendly.
