As we continue to face the uncertainty of COVID-19, many people are enhancing their cleaning regimes. Stores are cleaning carts, restaurants are only allowing a certain amount of people in, and masks are now being required in many establishments. So, it makes you wonder is your cleaning routine enough?
Tonya Harris, an award-winning environmental toxin expert, stopped by Indy Style to discuss some cleaning and disinfecting do’s and don’ts.
Here are some of the things Tonya recommended:
- DO clean before disinfecting. Cleaning means using a soap or detergent to physically remove dirt and grime from surfaces. Dirt and grime on surfaces can lessen the effectiveness of disinfectants, so it’s important to clean the area with either a multi-purpose cleaner or soap and water first. Disinfectants are regulated by the EPA, and must kill 99.999% of germs.
- DON’T wipe or spray disinfectants and wipe them up right away. Look at the label for instructions for how long to leave it on a surface before wiping away.
