Wicker and Wilde

Wicker and Wilde are all about disinfecting wipes, especially Wicker who wipes the studio down every morning - Which Rebecca 100% appreciates.  Most of us are using wipes in the kitchen, when we spill meat juices and other food stuff that could make us sick.  Did you know that these wipes, no matter the brand, is only good for a certain amount of space?  We certainly didn't.  We thought about it but it wasn't until we got confirmation from this article that you should use more than one if you wanna truly disinfect.  Turns out we might be spreading the germs, and not killing them, if we try to clean a whole kitchen with only one or two wipes.  If you wanna clean up raw meat juice then use 1 wipe in a 3 ft. x 3 ft. area.  and if you need to sop up some juice you may wanna do that first before using the wipe.  Then toss it.  Don't try to conserve or reuse the wipe, you'll only be spreading the germs.  And the experts say that you may not even need to use a wipe.  Good old fashion soap and hot water will  work for every day cleaning.  Happy disinfecting!
