Yesterday, the local ABC news channel carried story titled “EPA releases list of approved cleaning products to kill coronavirus.” Now this is something everyone is interested in right now. What shouldn’t have surprised anyone is some of the products listed are on the shelves on any grocery story.
The Environmental Protection Agency released its list of approved cleaning products to kill the coronavirus.
Many of the products include brands you’re used to seeing on store shelves, including Clorox, Lysol and Purell.
The products include Clorox Multi-Surface Cleaner + Bleach, Clorox Pet Solutions Advanced Formula Disinfecting Stain & Odor Remover, Clorox Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner, Clorox Disinfecting Wipes and more.
Lysol products include Lysol Brand Power Plus Toilet Bowl Cleaner, Lysol Brand Bleach Mold and Mildew Remover, Lysol Brand Clean and Fresh and more.
PURELL Professional Surface Disinfectant Wipes also made the list, as well as a series of medical-grade cleaners.
Now as any Baby Boomer can tell you, there was a time when smelling bleach or lemon as you entered a home meant the house had recently been cleaned and the lady of the house cared about her family. Sadly that has gone by the way.
I’m not saying that today’s families aren’t cleaning their homes. But perhaps we need to back to the basics. I tried to purchase some wipes yesterday but the shelves were bare. For me, this wasn’t a problem. I had just bought a case of bleach and could readily make up a bottle of bleach water to spray the counters.
If you look in your cleaning closet, would you find the supplies to keep your family safe?
