A potential alternative?

Bola Lafe, the Managing Director of UK sanitiser company Aquaint, said: “Campylobacter is a food bug mainly found on raw poultry and is the biggest cause of food poisoning in the UK. With this new epidemic at the forefront of consumers’ minds, as well as regulation bodies’, retailers need to ensure that they are doing everything they can to combat the bug.

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!

It’s National Picnic Week!

It’s National Picnic Week on 13th – 21st June. This week aims to provide people with the ideal opportunity to get together over a picnic and gives tips, advice and recipes to picnicking.

Hands can carry over 10 million bacteria, and although people may be inclined to scrub their hands before heading to an outdoor picnic, only a small percentage of al fresco diners bother to clean their mitts before tucking into a tasty sandwich.

To ensure your alfresco dining experience goes without a hitch, don’t forget to pack a bottle of Aquaint in your picnic basket.

With just a simple spritz from the handy 50ml bottle (£2.49), hands, surfaces, cutlery, tupperware, crockery, picnic equipment and even some foods can be free of harmful bacteria in seconds. And, because it’s water-based, it doesn’t leave a residue and is even completely harmless if ingested.

The NSPCC will be hosting a series of picnics and walks in Cumbria throughout June in association with National Picnic Week.

So, get out in to the sunshine and enjoy National Picnic Week without having to worry about germs.

Spring into action with Aquaint

A deep spring clean is a welcome tradition in many homes, however the prospect of a domestic overhaul can be a daunting task so it is important to choose a product that will refresh the home easily and efficiently, making the job much less demanding.

Particularly practical for ensuring areas where food is stored or prepared are germ-free, Aquaint offers a convenient and hygienic way to cleanse worktops, surfaces, refrigerators and cupboards. A water-based, scent-free product, the cleanser eliminates bacteria without contaminating your food or surfaces with harsh chemicals.

There are some household chores that we tend to ignore for most of the year, but spring is the ideal time tackling some of the bigger jobs. Tasks such as cleaning cupboards, doors and the fridge, for example, can feel a little daunting but using Aquaint will make the job feel more manageable as it doesn’t need to be wiped away after spraying and it won’t leave behind any residue.

Spring cleaners with young children don’t need to worry about them getting their hands on a bottle of Aquaint or even lending a helping hand. It has passed stringent UK drinking water tests, meaning that it is completely harmless. In addition, the product can be used to sanitise surfaces and equipment easily, leaving high chairs, tables and play areas hygienic and ensuring your children are protected.

You’ll be full of the joys of spring cleaning!
