Smart Cleaning Tools Delivered by the Home of Inspired Cleaning Products

Studies have shown that kitchen sponges can harbor copious amounts of bacteria. That's why EGL works with Microban International to offer a range of sponge scourers, non-scratch cleaning pads, and heavy-duty microfibre cloths, and cleaning pads with a built-in line of defense against invisible nasties.


How Does Microban® Technology Work in EGL Cleaning Products?

Integrated at the stage of manufacture, Microban® antibacterial technology works to disrupt the vital life processes and biological functions of contaminating bacteria. This means they cannot grow or reproduce on the treated cleaning product and subsequently die. Fewer bacteria = a cleaner, fresher cleaning tool!

New Launch! Antibacterial Tea Towels

Research has shown that tea towels could increase the risk of food poisoning! Scientists at the University of Mauritius found 49% of the kitchen towels collected in the study had bacterial growth. This increased with family size and the presence of children in the household. Towels that were used for multiple purposes - such as cleaning surfaces and drying hands - also had a higher bacterial count than single-use towels.

EGL Homecare is constantly striving to alleviate consumer concerns about bacteria - especially in the kitchen. That's why they have developed a range of antibacterial cleaning towels powered by Microban technology.


  • Treated with Microban antimicrobial technology to actively kill 99% of bacteria in the tea towel
  • Protected against stains and odors caused by bacterial growth 24/7
  • Stay fresher & cleaner for longer
  • Less likely to facilitate bacterial cross-contamination from surface to surface
