Domestos kills all known germs dead

Animated Domestos germs

With Domestos germs will die before they fly!

Domestos is a powerful, quick-acting bleach. It was launched in the UK in the 1920s and was sold door-to-door by salesmen on bicycles. At that time, it was used in the home as a solution to whiten cotton and household surfaces, and salesmen were assigned to do live demos. Today Domestos is sold all over the world. The brand is active in its sustainability work to extend access to toilets in disadvantaged parts of the world.

Safety first!

As a parent, you’re always considering the safety of your children. When swimming in a pool, crossing a road or even just making sure that their shoelaces are tied so that they don’t fall down. But another place to consider your family’s safety is right in your very home!

Germs make you sick!

The truth of the matter is that it only takes 1 germ to make you, or your little ones, sick. And in the average toilet, there are millions of germs in the bowl. They cling to the surface of the bowl, multiplying at an enormous rate. Just 1 germ can multiply into over 7 million germs in 7 hours. So think about what’s in your toilet when you come home from a long day at work.

Germs love to fly!

With billions of germs in the bowl, sooner or later you’re going to flush the toilet. The force of the water can send microscopic droplets of water flying into the air and onto the surrounding surfaces. Is your toothbrush kept anywhere close to your toilet? More than likely, there are germs from the toilet breeding on the surfaces in your bathroom, waiting to infest anyone they come into contact with.

Germs will die before they fly!

Domestos kills all known germs. There are 3 ways that it ensures your family is kept safe from harmful germs:

  1. Domestos is a bleach. Most toilet cleaners don’t contain bleach, they just smell nice. You need a bleach to kill all the germs in your toilet bowl.
  2. Domestos is a super thick liquid. This means that Domestos is able to cling to the bowl. Even after you flush, there is still a thick coat of bleach on the bowl unlike with those thin, watery toilet cleaners.
  3. The Domestos bottle has a curved head. That simple shape allows you to point the bleach directly under the rim of the toilet where the surface is usually rough and germs cling on.

Domestos saves the day!

Just as important as it is to wash your hands after using the loo, it is just as important to flush with the lid down. This helps prevent germs from flying out of the bowl. So teach your kids that simple rule. Also, use Domestos daily because thick bleach protects, where thin bleach neglects! Just 1 application of Domestos each day is enough to ensure the germs in your toilet bowl never multiply to amounts that are harmful to your family.
