Take care of the little ones

Baby-care and children

Keeping children safe and healthy is a priority for all parents. Keeping them away from dangerous disinfecting chemicals has not been easy until now.

Here is an example of how things can go wrong when you use dangerous chemicals inappropriately.

11th July 2013 A small child’s mother is suing the NY city after the boy suffered an injury in a city-owned day-care center’s bathroom, according to a complaint filed yesterday in State Supreme Court in the Bronx. The mother, Cylinda Whitted, claims that employees at Five Star Day Care Center, in the Morrisania neighborhood of the Bronx, improperly applied a cleaning agent called “Odor-A-Way Compactorcide” on the toilet seat. As a result, the suit states, the boy “sustained serious burn injuries on his body.”

The center failed “to follow safety instructions and warning labels on the hazardous chemical agent,” the suit argues. It was negligent in “applying the aforesaid chemical agent to the toilet seat” and in allowing the “toxic” product “to be used in the bathroom of Day Care Center where children of tender years … were enrolled.”

Compactorcide is a pesticide commonly used to kill bugs.

ActivSure disinfecting fluids from EcaSafe are both safe and effective.

Keeping your children safe and well is a priority for all parents. The challenge is to keep anything they come into contact with hygienic but without resorting to dangerous disinfecting chemicals.

Influenza is usually spread in the following ways:

  • by direct transmission (when an infected person sneezes mucus directly into the eyes, nose or mouth of another person);
  • the airborne route (when someone inhales the droplets produced by an infected person coughing, sneezing or spitting);
  • through hand-to-eye, hand-to-nose, or hand-to-mouth transmission, either from contaminated surfaces or from direct personal contact such as a hand-shake.

ActivSure disinfecting fluids from Ecasafe can help combat influenza.

We recommend that the regular cleaning and disinfection using freshly prepared HomeGuard disinfecting fluid. Pay particular attention to high contact areas such as keyboards, telephones and door handles. Apply regularly to get rid of germs. Don’t forget infant toys. The fluid is safe to use on the skin and can be sprayed into the air to combat airborne viruses.

The regular disinfection and sterilizing of baby apparatus is essential for baby health and welfare.

ActivSure recommends that you follow manufacturers recommendations for baby feeding apparatus. HomeGuard disinfecting fluids can be used on all surfaces such as baby change mats, bedding, bowls and even playmats as an alternative to aggressive chemicals.

Fisher Price have produced a really simple guide to cleaning and disinfecting toys.

They recommend diluted bleach for a sanitizer however bleach can be very dangerous. We recommend that you substitute Homeguard or Proguard disinfecting fluid. There is no need to dilute and it can be applied directly from the generator bottle. Much safer.
