When it comes to sanitizing—you may have been doing it all wrong. Just like washing your hands, cleaning the surfaces of your home or office requires the right equipment and time. For most products, in order to kill the virus, you can’t just spray it on and immediately wipe it away.
According to the EPA—Clorox bleach or something similar needs to sit for about 5 minutes. For disinfectant wipes, it can take anywhere from 4-10 minutes. So if stores are quickly wiping down things like carts—is that doing the trick?
