It’s hard to keep up with the waves of information coming in every day as scientists discover new things about the novel coronavirus.
What does the virus contaminate? What about mail? Should we wipe down our groceries?
These tips follow the most recent expert advice to ensure your home is a coronavirus safe zone:
Because of the focus on cleaning, many disinfectants are out of stock. If disinfecting products aren’t available, the CDC provides instructions for a homemade disinfectant that will also kill coronavirus.
Combine 4 teaspoons of bleach per quart of water. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle and use it to disinfect after cleaning hard surfaces. Remember to allow proper ventilation while mixing and using, and never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser.
