You’re working hard and in the middle of a project. Maybe it’s easier to just each lunch as your desk. But food particles left on your desk could cause it to be teeming with unwanted microbes. Products like the desk pad can easily become dirty and stained from frequent contact and food spills. Read on for ways to keep your desk pad clean and microbe free.

Simple Solution

The simplest way to keep your desk pad clean is to wipe it with a disinfectant wipe, especially after you eat at your desk, or use a spray bottle filled with vinegar and a clean cloth.


Best Solution

The best solution to keeping your desk pad clean is to purchase one with built-in antimicrobial protection which can provide further protection against the growth of microbes. The technology is added to the desk pad during the manufacturing process. This protective technology works continuously to create an inhospitable environment, helping prevent the growth of harmful microbes. Antimicrobial technology is durable, effective and since it is built in during manufacturing, it will not wash off or wear away.
