Disinfecting regularly around the house can prevent the spread and infection of disease. The Coronavirus can live on some surfaces for up to 16 hours, but a mindful cleaning on frequently-touched surfaces can kill it when used correctly and safely.
Here are expert solutions to do-it-yourself cleaning methods for disinfecting hard surfaces in your home with 3 basic household items.
Bleach is a common household item that can be bought inexpensively. You only need 4 teaspoons of it to a quart of water, or 5 tablespoons (1/3 cup) of bleach to a gallon of water.
At least 60% alcohol content is required so any amount above that would work. Whether wipes or sprays, make sure it contains at least 60% of isopropyl alcohol and that enough of it has covered the surface you are cleaning.
Most bottles of hydrogen peroxide at the drug stores are 3% and using this to spray on hard surfaces will work. A wait time of at least 1 minute before wiping off is needed.
