Can rubbing alcohol kill COVID-19?
Many forms of alcohol, including rubbing alcohol, can kill germs. You can dilute alcohol with water (or aloe vera to make hand sanitizer) but be sure to keep an alcohol concentration of around 70% to kill coronaviruses.
What is the best household disinfectant for surfaces during COVID-19?
Regular household cleaning and disinfection products will effectively eliminate the virus from household surfaces. For cleaning and disinfecting households with suspected or confirmed COVID19, surface virucidal disinfectants, such as 0.05% sodium hypochlorite (NaClO) and products based on ethanol (at least 70%), should be used.
A straight 3% hydrogen peroxide solution takes out rhinovirus – which is tougher to kill than coronavirus – in six to eight minutes, and so should be at least as quick in disinfecting coronavirus.
What solutions can be used to disinfect surfaces during the COVID-19 pandemic?
For disinfection, diluted household bleach solutions, alcohol solutions with at least 70% alcohol, and most common EPA-registered disinfectant should be effective.
Can I use disinfectant sprays for effective cleaning during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Spray disinfectants, like Lysol Disinfecting Spray, kills up to 99.9 percent of fungi, viruses and bacteria. Simply spray the possibly infected areas, like doorknobs and furniture, and let the spray do its work, making for easy cleaning.
