The school janitor is responsible for cleaning the school but it is always recommended as a teacher that you clean your own classroom using our trustworthy classroom cleaning tips. There is a sense of pride and content with having a germ-free learning environment. Washing hands and cleaning with a wiping cloth such as microfiber or bar towel can do wonders.

Tips on How to Stop Spreading Germs in the Classroom:

Pick up a good wiping rag and do some extra wiping down of surfaces. We suggest grabbing a microfiber or a terry bar towel. You can get the cloth slightly damp for dust removal or add soapy water for a mild disinfectant. If there is a mess that is in need of serious clean up or disinfectant let your janitor know to receive assistance.

Some other popular wiping cloths used in the school district for general clean up are:

White Washcloths


Recycled White Knit

Our Favorite Classroom Cleaning Tips:

Always have your student’s wash their hands regularly; this can stop the spread of germs throughout your classroom. So before eating, after bathroom, after recess and anytime they get dirty – make sure your kids are washing their hands. Some schools don’t like the use of disinfectant wipes. Disinfectant wipes get overused and some have fragrance that can trigger asthma and other problems for sensitive students and staff. The best option is simply to use a standard soap that the school provides. It’s always good to use a school or district provided cleaning solution, that way you don’t accidentally clean with a prohibited cleaner. Alternatively, a good recipe for classroom cleaner that is safe is to use one teaspoon fragrance free dish soap mixed with water in a spray bottle.

Have a great time cleaning your classroom while feeling refreshed about a clean germ free learning environment.
