Kuala Lumpur, May 11, 2021– The COVID-19 pandemic is still with us. While the immunisation roll-out is progressing, Malaysians are responding responsibly to the government’s call to protect self, to protect all by taking precautions to bring down transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

“Even before the pandemic, Lion Corporation of Japan had been researching anti-virus detergent technology to give our users a more hygienically lifestyle. We introduced this innovative and essential detergent technology to Malaysia only after exhaustive formula development to ensure it works against viruses, and the SARS-CoV-2 virus in particular. Malaysians appreciated our innovative product offering as it is relevant to our new normal, and gives them greater peace of mind. For TOP, we are glad to do our part as part of #kitajagakita by providing this innovative detergent range.”

“Since I have been back at work, I have been worried that I may have brought the virus back with me on my clothes as my mother lives with us. We need to be careful. When I saw that TOP could remove 99.9% of viruses including COVID-19, I got it immediately for my family. Our routine when we get home is to remove used clothes, put them in a laundry basket with a close-fitting cover, and have a shower. We do laundry every evening to reduce the risk of transmission. I feel happy to use TOP because it can remove 99.9% of viruses,” said Wenny Soong, a hairstylist and mother of two.
Muhammad Syahidee, a delivery driver felt it was his responsibility to use a detergent that could remove 99.9% of viruses and bacteria as his effort to reduce the risk of transmission.
“Before the pandemic I didn’t know the difference between virus and bacteria. I was anxious as I may inadvertently spread the disease to my family, friends, customers & co-workers as I am a frontliner. I found that TOP removes 99.9% of viruses including the COVID-19 from my clothes, and this gives me assurance and peace of mind. It is the responsibility of every one of us to safeguard the health of all of us. It’s #kitajagakita. I’m extra careful about cleanliness and hygiene even more now than before. None of us should be a super-spreader,” he explained.
