Maintaining Good Hygiene While Traveling: Tips from Matguard USA

As a company that specializes in disinfection and cleaning, we at Matguard USA understand the importance of maintaining a high level of hygiene and cleanliness, especially during the holiday traveling season. During this time of year, people are often on the move, traveling to visit friends and family, or taking vacations. While it's always important to practice good hygiene, it's even more crucial to do so when you're in close quarters with others, such as on a plane or in a hotel room.

Bring Your Own Disinfectant Products

One way to stay healthy while traveling is to bring along some of your own disinfectant products. Our Matguard Equipment & Surface Wipes are a convenient and effective way to quickly clean and sanitize surfaces. They're perfect for wiping down tray tables, armrests, and other high-touch areas on planes and trains. They're also great for cleaning hotel room surfaces, such as countertops, doorknobs, and light switches.

Another versatile solution is our Matguard Surface Spray. Simply spray it on and wipe it off to kill germs and bacteria. This is especially useful for surfaces that may be harder to clean with wipes, such as handrails or luggage carts.

Don't Forget to Wash Your Hands

Another important step to take is to wash your hands frequently. This is especially important after touching surfaces that may be contaminated, such as door handles or luggage carts. Make sure to use soap and water, and scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. If you're unable to wash your hands, our Matguard Hand & Body Cleanse is a great alternative. It's formulated with 70% alcohol to kill germs and bacteria, and it comes in a convenient travel-sized bottle that's easy to carry with you.

Pack Some Personal Protective Equipment

In addition to these measures, it's also a good idea to pack some personal protective equipment, such as face masks and gloves. While these items may not be necessary in all situations, they can provide an extra layer of protection against germs and bacteria. If you're traveling by plane, for example, you may want to consider wearing a mask to help reduce the spread of respiratory droplets. Similarly, if you're staying in a hotel or other shared space, you may want to wear gloves when handling common areas, such as door handles or elevator buttons.

Be Mindful of Your Surroundings

In addition to taking care of your own personal hygiene, it's also important to be mindful of your surroundings and the cleanliness of your accommodations. If you're staying in a hotel, for example, make sure to check the cleanliness of your room upon arrival. If you notice any unclean areas, request that they be cleaned without fear. Similarly, if you're eating out, choose restaurants that have good hygiene practices and clean facilities.

Matguard Keeps You Safe 

Overall, the holiday traveling season is a time to be extra mindful of your personal hygiene and the cleanliness of your surroundings. By taking a few simple precautions, such as bringing your own disinfectant products, washing your hands frequently, and packing personal protective equipment, you can help protect yourself and others from illness and ensure that your holiday travels are enjoyable and stress-free. Trust us at Matguard USA to provide you with the products you need to keep yourself and your surroundings clean and healthy.
