Covid-19 Corona virus is causing countries and states to order residents to stay at home. In many places, you can still go out for essential errands, like buying food at the grocery store, grabbing take-out orders and picking up supplies from the pharmacy. This means you need to be cautious of surfaces you touch in public, like shopping carts, and cognizant of the germs you might bring home. Part of the best way to minimize your exposure to the disease known as COVID-19 is to keep your home disinfected and sanitized.
It takes only a few minutes, but cleaning high-traffic surfaces once a day can make a difference in preventing the spread of infection.
The first thing you'll want to know is that cleaning and disinfecting are two very different things.
We recommend to do a bit of both, even if nobody in your home is sick.
Cleaning is about removing contaminants from a surface.
Disinfecting is about killing pathogens.
First Clean, Then Disinfect
First, clean the surfaces, removing any contaminants, dust, or debris. You can do this by wiping them with soapy water (or a cleaning spray) and a hand towel.
Then apply a surface-appropriate disinfectant. The quickest and easiest way to do this is with disinfecting wipes or disinfectant spray.
What’s a high-touch surface?
All those places where you and your family leave a million fingerprints every day. (Clean bathroom surfaces last.)
• Door knobs • Light switches • Refrigerator and microwave doors • Drawer pulls • TV remote • Counters and table tops where you cook and eat • Toilet handles • Faucet handles
Extra tip: Don't forget to wipe down your phone , tablet, credit cards etc.
What is the best to use?
To keep the germs at bay, use a disinfectant wipes like these >>>Alcohol Wet Wipes to quickly sanitize those areas or simply use disposable >>>paper towels with >>>Lysol Antibacterial Spray cleaner. Once or twice a day should do the trick to remove germs, but if someone in your house is sick, you may want to wipe down surfaces more frequently. After you wipe the area, let it air dry to give it time to kill any bacteria that could linger.
For your floors use this bleach mixture 1 cup of bleach mixed with 5 gallons of water.
Extra tip: Wear >>>disposable gloves (save 50% now) and throw them out after you're done using them.
How else can I be sure my home stays clean?
When you get home, take off your shoes, hang up your coat (the virus can still cling to surfaces
you carry with you into your sanctuary)and immediately go wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water. Washing your hands frequently is one of the best
steps you can take and also avoid touching your face, eyes, mouth and nose.
