Keeping things squeaky clean at home? You might be missing these spots

Health and safety is everyone’s top priority, especially during these times. With everyone cooped up at home, maintaining good cleaning habits can help prevent the spread of germs. The problem is, some germs and bacteria are just too stubborn and won’t go away easily — especially on some items which are not that easy to clean.

GERMUMUS hiding in plain sight


Though many of us have turned into clean freaks recently, there are still some areas in our home that may require extra cleaning and sanitizing attention. We may not always see it, but germs may be living in these areas without you knowing it.

  • Mattress and bed sheets. A place that offers us comfort and relaxation at the end of the day, our bed can serve as a petri dish of germs and bacteria. Using them everyday and night, a typical mattress has, on average, 10 million dust mites. Changing the sheets and regular vacuuming may help, but it’s not enough to thoroughly get rid of the germs and bacteria hiding in it.
  • Couch and work chairs. Germs, smells, and pests are pretty much present on a couch too. This is where you sit all day since working from home, and your loved ones regularly lounge comfortably at the couch any time of day. So naturally, it is dirty and let’s face it, we don’t really pay much attention to cleaning this other than every other month.
  • Curtains. As one of the most overlooked items in the house to be cleaned, curtains can be a hotspot for germs and bacteria. Apart from the fact that we don’t regularly clean our curtains, germs tend to live longer in these items because it holds on to residual water which may result in mildew and mold accumulation on top of the dust and allergens it catches from the air.

For such hard-to-wash fabrics, the commonly used routes to get rid of germs and other sorts of dirt are:


  • Hand wash
  • Dry cleaning
  • Vacuum
  • Professional cleaning

But these methods come with certain disadvantages. For instance, hand-washing fabrics take A LOT of time and effort. Dry cleaning and vacuuming, on one hand, consume too much electricity. As for professional cleaning, it means a group of outsiders have to come into your home to do the cleaning — and it’s an added cost.

Spray away and keep the germs at bay

The good news is a new cleaning solution is in town: the NEW Downy Antibac+ Fabric Spray! It’s easy to use and it gets the job done. Simply turn the spray cap ON, and spray between 20-30cm away. Then, allow the fabric to air dry.

Apart from convenience, you can rest assured that the Downy Antibac+ Fabric Spray helps get rid of up to 99.9% of germs and bacteria. Other than keeping your fabrics clean, spray and leave nothing but the instabango of Downy Freshness. Take it from these celebrities who have been germumu-busting recently:


Every family can relate to dusty and dirty horror stories. Just like the Pamilya Nunal who are afraid of Germumus. Germs, after all, are like ghosts that creep around the house — you can’t see them, but you know they’re there.

Even Nico Bolzico and Solenn Heusaff get praning over the slightest hint of dust or dirt in hard-to-wash fabrics. However, Solenn knows that she can’t just throw their curtains, carpets, and of course, their couch in the washing machine, so they need an easy and effective alternative to keeping their household germ-free for them, and most certainly for their daughter Thylane.


Some people, like Vice Ganda, can even laugh at the challenge of cleaning these fabrics just to keep the good vibes flowing at home. But at the end of the day, cleaning and sanitizing the home is a serious business that requires serious solutions. Even if Vice tries to get rid of the dirt and germs by vigorously making pagpag his couch, it’s really not enough to protect everyone from the lingering germumus.

As these celebs would say, pagpag is not enough to keep the germs away! Join them in preventing the spread of bacteria at home by keeping hard-to-wash fabrics germ-free and smelling oh-so-bango with the Downy Antibac Fabric Spray everyday. Together, #LetUsSprayandProtect.
