Here are some tips for properly disinfecting your home to ensure your family stays healthy during this difficult time. The CDC recommends that you clean and disinfect high-touch areas at least once daily as a precaution.
Focus on doorknobs, bathroom and kitchen counters, toilet seats and handles, light switches and remote controls.
Remove any contaminants and dust by wiping surfaces with soapy water or a cleaning product. After you’ve done that, clean the area again with a disinfecting spray or wipe.
The CDC provides the following instructions for making a homemade bleach disinfecting spray:
Combine 4 teaspoons of bleach and 1 quart of water in a spray bottle and shake. Spray on what you want to disinfect and let sit for 10 minutes before wiping away with a wet cloth.
