Keep Things Clean On Vacation

December 9, 2005

One in four people has encountered a “nightmare” vacation destination that they described as “disgustingly filthy,” according to the Soap and Detergent Association’s (SDA) Summer Vacation National Cleaning survey. The results reveal that 27% of people have gotten sick while on vacation, 51% have suffered stains on their clothing during a vacation and 43% have felt the need to clean eating areas when they first arrived at a destination.
To fight the germs and dirt, respondents admitted to bringing along their own cleaning supplies. Fifty-six percent of those surveyed bring their own bar or liquid hand soap, 44% travel with hand or personal wipes, 41% carry a hand sanitizer, 31% use cleaning/disinfectant wipes, 21% of those surveyed travel with a disinfectant spray, 14% use air sanitizers and 14% carry stain wipes.
“This research brings all new meaning to the term ‘vacation spots,’” commented Brian Sansoni, SDA vice president of communications. “By taking a few minutes to pack the basic ‘on-the-go’ cleaning supplies, consumers can have the peace of mind that comes with being prepared for life’s little spills and messes.” More info: www.cleaning101.com.
