AF International cleans up for Barnardo's at The Education Show

Posted on 29 March 2007 |

AF International, the popular choice for classroom and office equipment cleaning products, did not only offer visitors an even better choice and value for money at this year's Education Show but also the chance to help a worthy cause - Barnardo's.

Visitors were able to take advantage of purchasing three of the best selling ranges - Screen-Clene, Phone-Clene and CD-Clene - any three for £1! AF International collected £371.80 proceeds from this offer which will go directly to Barnardo's to assist their work across the UK protecting and supporting some of the most vulnerable children. Thank you to everyone who participated.

Cleaning products are becoming more essential in schools where computers are used by a large number of students. Multiple usage of equipment by students can spread infections such as coughs and colds very easily through the classroom, and using products such as Screen-Clene wipes can reduce the risk.

Headlining this year's offering was a number of other innovative cleaning products:

The White Board range has been formulated for all types of whiteboards used within the classrooms.

White Boardclene is available as an easy-to-use, non-flammable, environmentally-friendly pump spray (250ml) and is ideal for removing most types of ink from white board surfaces.

White Board Foamclene has a powerful foaming action to lift ink, grease and dirt and also has anti-static properties that reduce the attraction of dust to the surface. It is non-flammable and is suitable for use on both plastic and metal surfaces.

White Board Cloths are ideal for use with both these cleaners. These lint-free absorbent cloths offer excellent strength either wet or dry and leave no residues on the surface being cleaned.

Interactive White Board Wipes are pre-impregnated wipes for quick and easy cleaning. Available as a pack of 100 wipes in a convenient re-sealable tub, they effectively remove dry ink residue and grease and are non-flammable and safe to use.

Also showcased in the UK for the first time was AF International's new Personal Range. This extensive range is an environmentally-friendly cleaning solution perfect for teachers on the go all the time! The 12 products in the 'Personal' range have been designed in perfectly petite packages so whether it is moving from classroom to classroom or preparing lessons plans from home workstations this easily portable cleaning kit will fit in well with your busy working schedule.


Barnardo's works with over 110,000 children, young people and their families in more than 383 projects across the country. This includes work with children affected by today's most urgent issues: poverty, homelessness, disability, bereavement and abuse.

Barnardo's vision is that the lives of children and young people should be free from poverty, abuse and discrimination. Its purpose is to help the most vulnerable children and young people transform their lives and fulfil their potential.
