Having the Right Products

Like you, we have seen so many commercials and advertisements for new cleaning products. We too have had a hard time finding Lysol disinfectant wipes but what is important are the ingredients. So keep in mind that not all disinfectant wipes are created equal. Not all cleaning products kill COVID. Most importantly, here is the complete list of all EPA approved cleaners to kill COVID.

For those having issues finding specific products, please use the EPA link above to check if the product you can purchase is approved. It may take a little effort to cross-check. But we are sure that your health and that of your family is worth the effort.

Follow the Label

Also, we need to remember that just because we have the right product doesn’t mean we are using it the right way. Each disinfectant has different directions and contact-time needed to work effectively. Similarly, just spraying down your counter doesn’t mean that the spray is going to work.

So, when in doubt, check the label.

The EPA created a great resource on their site that helps give you the information on all approved disinfectants and the time they have to be in contact with the virus in order to kill COVID. You can check out that list here.

In Conclusion

In conclusion, we hope that your family continues to stay healthy and safe during this time. Thank you for taking the time to learn about the 13 additional products proven to kill COVID. Here is a link to the CDC’s advice on how to disinfect your home.
