General information taken from reputable sources off the internet on how long the virus survives on certain materials
Cardboard : 24 hours. It is believed that shipping conditions make it difficult for the coronavirus to survive. However, if you want to be safe wear Disposable Gloves or spray the box with some sanitiser spray before opening. Alternatively, and a cheaper option is to make sure you wash your hands properly as advised for 20 seconds after you dispose the box.
Plastics and Stainless Steel : 2-3 days. Make sure you use anti-bacterial cleaners for keyboards, computer screens, telephones etc. We sell many of these items, however supply and pricing is an issue. There are some products that contain a biocide but cannot be sold or classified as an anti-bacterial/anti-viral product as they have not been tested. We have indicated these products as containing Benzisothiazolinone (BIT) which is a widely used biocide (ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benzisothiazolinone). As we have already indicated try to use a product that is classified as an anti-bacterial but if you are unable to locate one then using these items is probably better than nothing at all
What we are doing
There are many false claims on the internet and social media please make sure you stick to reputable sources for information.
Although we sell anti-bacterial gels there is no need to use them if you have access to soap and water and follow the guidelines given by government and scientists. If you have no access to wash your hand, due to the type of work you do, then take a small sanitiser or sanitising hand wipes with you.
Above all keep safe and keep your distance as advised.
