It’s apparently still alive and kicking in the USA. A week ago, I posted parts of a news article from my local news, (You Think?) that had a link in it to a list of items readily available in stores, that the EPA stated would kill the Coronavirus. Easy, peasy, right? Clorox – Check. Lysol – Check. Purell – Check.
Monday, while enjoying the hospitality of my local VA, I caught sight of a news story on a different channel pointing out that certain cleaners were not appropriate for this need. So let me use some old-fashion terms, maybe that will help.
No one is saying you don’t clean your home. Nope, haven’t heard that at all. The question is, “Are you disinfecting or sanitizing it?” Totally different things there.
When you spray the disinfectant and wipe it up right away, that’s sanitizing it. When you wait for 5 – 6 minutes, that’s disinfecting it. Make sure to do both. Start by disinfecting every thing, then you can sanitize it more easily.
