Izzy Hussain, is the owner of a domestic cleaning company in Wolverhampton, and spoke to the BBC saying cleaning is all about common sense. Izzy said; “I think we all know what to do but we've just forgotten or taken cleaning less seriously as our lives have got busier. We have a lot of vulnerable clients - elderly people and working families with children too, and it's easy to overlook things. With this scare - and it is scary - we've been wearing disposable gloves out on jobs to protect ourselves, but otherwise our standards have remained as high as they've always been. I would just say it's time to go back to basics and clean your home not just regularly but often.”

 If you are looking for a helping hand to scrub your home clean, but want to avoid commercial cleaning products, the following items are handy to use:

  • Baking soda
  • Distilled white vinegar
  • Lemons
  • Liquid dish soap
  • Salt
  • Vodka/rubbing alcohol
