What Cleaning Products (Can’t) You Use to Clean Tonik Furniture?

The simple answer? Not many!

With COVID-19 turning daily lives upside-down, many professionals are looking to plan for the post-pandemic future. How exactly do we plan spaces, and more importantly, how do we keep the areas clean and the public healthy?

The coronavirus is a protein covered in a protective layer of fat (lipids). The bad news is that’s it’s highly contagious and is spread in carriers who are asymptomatic. It can also live on various surfaces for some time. The good news is that it’s pretty easy to kill.

Destroying the lipid is the key to killing the virus, and regular soap does just that. Washing your hands frequently with soap is the best thing you can do to prevent the spread. In public spaces, containing the virus by eliminating it on surfaces is the goal. Household cleaners can do just that.  

We’ve tested hundreds of cleaners (see the list below) on Tonik furniture. Rotomolded polyethylene is an ideal surface for cleaning and sanitizing. It is seamless, waterproof, and does not contain hidden areas for debris to collect.  

For infection control, hospital-grade cleaners such as Bleach, Accel TB, Germicide, Opti-Cide, and Vital Oxcide, or equivalent cleaners, are safe to use on Tonik furniture.  

When choosing surfaces for public spaces, consider furniture that is highly cleanable.  Tonik rotomolded polyethylene is ideal for cleaning and sanitation.
