RV Social Distancing
A Clean RV Is An Effective Way To 'Social Distance'
April 1, 2020
With large public events being canceled due to concerns over coronavirus COVID-19, RVing is perhaps the most enjoyable way to spend time with immediate family while still social distancing. Even away from the crowds, there are still everyday germs to contend with in and around a trailer, camper or motorhome. Shurhold, the leader in RV cleaning and maintenance products, has a Clean-N-Simple Tip to help sanitize the RV using a quality soap and Serious Shine.
In a home, neatness counts when it comes to cleaning. But on an RV, almost every exterior surface is designed to get wet. This makes it fast and easy to use a quality soap such as Shurhold Brite Wash and liberal amounts of rinse water.
Because of the makeup of soap, it actually breaks apart the virus and dissolves the bond between the virus and the surface it's residing on. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this makes it more effective at combatting COVID-19 than alcohol or disinfectants. This makes it ideal for hands and large areas of an RV.
There's little doubt that bleach kills germs. Bleach wipes are extremely handy to use and disinfect areas quickly. But it can also quickly degrade gelcoat and vinyl, discolor paint and corrode metal fittings. Shurhold recommends a quality soap to protect these surfaces.
If harsher chemicals are used, only wipe the high-touchpoint areas. It's important to immediately rinse with fresh water and dry with a chamois. As a final step, detail with Shurhold Serious Shine. This removes the caustic effects of the chemical and protects surfaces against the harmful effects of UV rays.
Serious Shine is simply sprayed on and wiped off with a clean microfiber cloth. Once the solution begins to disappear, the cloth is flipped and the area lightly buffed. The result is a deep, germ-free, clean, attractive high gloss finish and no greasy residue.
A 32 oz. bottle of Brite Wash is $11.98; a 14 oz. spray can of Shurhold Serious Shine costs $16.98; and the Microfiber Towel Variety 3-pack is $19.98.
