As the nation celebrates the success of its vaccination program, many might think that we have weathered the worst of the pandemic. With over 90% of the adult population in Malaysia fully vaccinated (Data source: COVIDNOW), this does not mean that we can let our guard down against the coronavirus, especially when it comes to our cleaning and disinfecting habits.
Newly launched in October 2021, Febreze® introduces its latest innovation, the Febreze® 2- in-1 Anti-Bac Spray, scientifically proven to kill up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, including coronavirus (SARS-COV-2)*, on both hard and soft surfaces. The new Febreze® 2-in-1 Anti-Bac Spray promises an all-in-one solution for cleaning and disinfecting soft, porous surfaces like fabrics, cushions, sofa, curtains, carpets etc. and hard surfaces including high touch areas like tables, chairs, doorknobs and appliance handles. Formulated with a key active ingredient for disinfection, Febreze® 2-in-1 Anti-Bac Spray has recently been registered with the Singapore National Environmental Agency as an effective wipe-down disinfectant on non-porous surfaces against coronavirus (Data source: Singapore National Environmental Agency Website).
Ms. Grace Chua, P&G Brand Director for Malaysia Air Care, shared, “The new Febreze® 2-in-1 Anti-Bac Spray is primed to elevate the hygiene standards for consumers we serve today. As Malaysia transitions to endemic living, Febreze is here to help our consumers find normalcy under the new normal by addressing an inherent need to keep our homes and environments hygienic at the convenience of the 2-in-1 Anti-Bac spray.”
In line with the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) recommendation to reduce the potential for bacteria and virus contamination through good sanitisation practices, virologist Prof. Dr. Chan Yoke Fun added, “Maintaining a clean and regularly sanitised environment for me is very important, especially since COVID-19 is still prevalent in the community. It will be prudent for us to do our part in curbing the spread of the virus by taking the necessary steps to ensure our surroundings remain clean and hygienic. Proper hygiene and disinfecting will go a long way in COVID-19 prevention.”
Co-founder of professional cleaning service Maideasy, Ms. Meriza Anna Mustapha, advised that bacteria and viruses can linger on certain surfaces in the house for days, if not cleaned thoroughly. “It is our responsibility to ensure that we provide a clean environment for our clients through effective cleaning and disinfecting practices. The versatility and convenience of Febreze® 2-in-1 Anti-Bac Spray is my go-to solution as it saves time and effort while de- germing effectively. I even use it in my own home,” she said.
Febreze® 2-in-1 Anti-Bac Spray is now available in all major supermarkets with two sizes, 370ml (RM14.90) and 800ml (RM29.90). It also comes in three signature scent variants: Floral Blossom, Fresh Breeze and Garden Bloom, keeping your homes and its surroundings clean and smelling fresh.
