In stores, you can find microfiber napkins of any color. This is done for a reason: so that people can use the color-coding method and maintain hygiene standards.

The color-coding method for rags

With this method, you can avoid cross-contamination. Just always use the same colors of wipes and rags for the same purposes so that you don't accidentally transfer dangerous bacteria from the bathroom to the kitchen, for example.

You can distribute the colors in any way you want, but experts recommend doing it as follows:

  • Blue rags for mirrors and glass;
  • Green for the kitchen and common areas outside the bathrooms;
  • Yellow for sinks, bathtubs, and faucets;
  • Red for toilets and urinals, etc.

This system provides for the distribution of colors by danger. Such associations will help you better remember what the rags are for and prevent confusion.

Another way to easily remember the purpose of the rags is to visually match them in color with the cleaning products.

You can use stickers to label bottles of chemicals with the color that matches the color of the rag you will use with it.

Separating your rags by color is an easy way to make your cleaning more efficient and environmentally friendly. Try using this life hack to see for yourself.
