Most of us are now looking forward to our much-needed summer holidays. But bear in mind new research by natural sanitising spray producer Aquaint that reveals suitcases can come into contact with up to 80 million bacteria before they reach the hotel rooms of holidaymakers.

Tattooed Mummy’s Randoms

A little gem has appeared and become an instant favourite on my ‘things to take when I go out’ list.

Small and easy to fit in my bag a bottle of Aquaint has replaced a previously carried bottle of alcohol based hand gel.

Aquaint’s claims made me initially think it must be too good to be true! Kills 99.9% of all sorts of horrors, can be used on babies and children (from birth!), isn’t dangerous if ingested, can be used to clean ‘things’ as well as hands, dummies, rattles, (so if anyone throws their toys out of the pram they can go right back in after a quick spray and wipe) plates (perfect when camping as I often leave things to dry in the sun where flies no doubt have a wander!) and even fruit!

Vital Baby has come up with a fantastic 100% natural Sanitising Water spray. Its antibacterial agents kills 99.9% of bacteria in seconds.

 I love the fact that it’s alcohol free and not sticky in the slightest; it’s a real multi-purpose sanitising spray and it comes with me everywhere now!

It’s suitable from birth and can be used to clean hands, skin, mouth as well as dummies, bottles and teethers; it’s so much more than a simple hand sanitiser.

Banish The Barbecue Bug

Barbecue season is well underway, but like the British weather, poor barbecue hygiene could put a dampener on proceedings.

Around half of UK barbecue hosts admit that they are far from meticulous when it comes to separating tongs and other utensils, with 51 per cent of people using the same tongs for handling raw and cooked meat.

Unsurprisingly, this means that cases of food poisoning double over the summer months, according to the NHS. The harmful bacteria, Campylobacter, also known as the Barbecue Bug, causes over 100 deaths a year.

Furthermore, hands can carry over 10 million bacteria and so it is imperative to scrub your hands before biting into that barbecued burger.

Aquaint is the perfect hygiene essential for any barbecue or outdoor meal. It can be used on the hands, food, utensils, tongs, and chopping boards, to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. This is particularly important as people can forget that dangerous germs are transferred between uncooked meats to hands, vegetables and cutlery.

With just a simple spritz from a handy 50ml bottle, any trace of dirt or bacteria will be eradicated from hands and no towel is needed, as it doesn’t leave a residue. It’s kind to even the most sensitive skin from birth.

What’s more, Aquaint has passed official UK Drinking Water tests, so it can be sprayed directly onto uncooked meats, salad items, vegetables and fruits where the skin is eaten.

Next time you host a barbeque, make sure you have your bottle of Aquaint at the ready and your al fresco feast will go without a hitch!
