used, including how much it should be diluted
with water, what types of surfaces it can be
used on, and whether it needs to be left on the
surface for a certain amount of time. Don’t mix

cleaning products and hand sanitisers out of
reach of children. After cleaning surfaces wash
your hands with soap for 20 seconds and dry
them thoroughly.
