5 EASY WAYS TO MAINTAIN YOUR SNEEZE GUARDS
So, you purchased sneeze guards for your business. But those sneeze guards are starting to look a little worn. They’re covered in fingerprints and collecting a little dust. And a few of them have specks and flecks of you-don’t-know-what. They’re still keeping you safe, but they don’t look like it.
What do you do? Clean them, right?
Well, simply cleaning them may not be enough. They could end up looking worse because you scratched them.
Here are 5 easy tips to keep your sneeze guards looking new.
It seems like everyone loves microfiber cloths nowadays. They’re great at cleaning almost everything and your sneeze guards are no exception.
Lightly wipe down your sneeze guards with a clean microfiber cloth. That should take care of any dust or streaks and get them looking like new in no time. Remember, no brushes!
Okay, it’s been a while since you’ve cleaned your sneeze guards and you feel like a cloth just won’t be enough. No worries. You can use water.
Dampen (don’t soak) your microfiber cloth with warm water. This should help get rid of any smudges or specks that just don’t want to come off. If you’d like, you can add a little mild soap or dish detergent to your water.
For best results use a plastic safe cleaner like Brillianize. Not only will it give your sneeze guards that brand new shine, but it will help protect against smudges and scratches.
DON’T DROP IT!
I know this kind of goes without saying, but still...don’t drop it!
Your sneeze guards are made of polycarbonate. They won’t break so easily. But if you’re constantly dropping them, it’s only a matter of time.
NO HARSH CHEMICALS
After protecting you from coughing and sneezing you want to disinfect your sneeze guard, right? But if you use harsh chemicals your sneeze guards could get that dirty, cloudy look.
To disinfect your sneeze guards, use isopropyl alcohol diluted down to 30% strength with warm water.
First clean your sneeze guard. Then apply the alcohol/water mixture and let sit for 30 seconds. Wipe dry with a microfiber cloth and you’re all set.
AVOID DIRECT SUNLIGHT
This can be a tricky one. Polycarbonates offer great clarity and transparency and can easily handle sunlight. Some even come tinted or colored to block light.
Your sneeze guards likely aren’t tinted, though. A little sunlight won’t hurt today, but over time they’ll develop a yellowish color that will make all your careful cleaning a waste of time. Keep them out of direct sunlight over long periods of time to avoid any discoloration.
WHAT DID WE LEARN?
You can keep your sneeze guards looking new in just a few steps. As long as you take care of your sneeze guards, they’ll continue to take care of you.
