All staff members and visitors should be vigilant about keeping their hands clean with frequent hand washing and therefore the availability of hand sanitiser in places where it is not always possible to wash hands thoroughly with soap and water should be made available.

Dew Products – Helping to minimise the spread of the Cold and Flu Virus this Winter!

As you know, good health and hygiene in your school is not just about COVID-19. We are currently heading into the Winter season where we will now have to encounter the circulation of cold and flu viruses as well as continue the fight against the COVID-19 virus. As with COVID-19 we need to ensure that we clean and disinfect high touch surfaces and practice good hand hygiene to minimise the spread of these viruses. The Dew product range available on The Primary School Shop can be used effectively against Colds and Flu viruses as well as COVID-19. There are a range of different sanitising and disinfectant products available from Dew that are all non-alcohol based, meaning they are safe for us and the environment and non-damaging to surfaces and objects. 

DEW sanister products carry no fire risk and are not harmful to your skin or lungs (if inhaled). This means that the product can also be ‘fogged’ to quickly decontaminate an enclosed space. This can be done by using the Room Sanitiser or, for smaller areas or vehicles, the Personal  / Car Dry Mister. Either unit is simply filled with the Dew Disinfect Refill (available in both 5 litre and 2.5 litre cans) which disperses a harmless dry mist that will sanitise the air in the area of the room or space that you place the unit, killing 99.995% germs and viruses including Cold and Flu viruses. One Room Sanitiser can sanitise the air in a room of 50 square meters in less than 30 minutes. Our star Dew product is the Air Spray Atomiser  which can be used in all areas, including close to food.

How do Dew Products work?

Dew products are made up of 99.84% water, salt (Sodium Chloride) 0.134% and FAC of 0.026%. FAC stands for ‘Free Available Chlorine’ and in Dew’s case FAC is comprised of two components, Hypochlorous Acid and Sodium Hypochlorite. Hypochlorous acid is a substance that the human body itself naturally produces in order to fight infections. The Dew cleansers and disinfectants are made by passing electrical currents through a solution of de-ionised water and high purity salt (Sodium Chloride) in a chamber fitted with a specially designed membrane. This process is known as electrolysis. When Dew (electrolysed water) comes into contact with bacteria the Dew molecules cause an imbalance on the bacteria cell surface, breaking down its defences allowing the Hypochlorous Acid to render it harmless.

Dew Products October Special Offers!

Our special October offers can save you €25.00 on the Dew Room Sanitiser including 2 x 5L Disinfect Refills! The original price for the Dew Room Sanitiser and 2 x 5L Disinfect Refills is €159.00 and for a limited time only you can now purchase for €134.00! You can also save €7.00 on the Personal/Car Dry Mister as it is now reduced from €39.50 to €32.50. We are also delighted to announce a new product bundle available, the Dew Air and 5L Disinfect Refill with a saving of €5. The Dew Air Spray can be used to disinfect and deodrise the air around you. You simply spray liberally to eliminate any impurities such as airborne yeast, pollen and mould spores. It is also effective against cold and flu viruses. It is ideal for anyone who suffers from hayfever and can also be sprayed on clothes, soft furnishings and  carpets to freshen up. When your bottle is empty you do not need to discard it but simply fill up again with the 5 Litre refill, encouraging services to reduce their plastic waste by reusing!
