Three Disinfectants As Close As Your Bathroom

January 19, 2021
Hydrogen peroxide

Peroxide

Couldn’t find disinfectant at the store? It could be as close as your bathroom or kitchen.

Undiluted 3% PEROXIDE. Use in a spray bottle on frequently touched surfaces, but avoid fabric.

Spray on. Leave for 1 minute. Wipe away with a paper towel.

 

BLEACH solution: 1 quart water, 4 teaspoons disinfecting bleach (NOT splashless)

Use on frequently touched surfaces that can withstand bleach. Spray or wipe on. Leave on for 10 minutes. Dry. Use this solution within 24 hours since its disinfecting properties fade with time.

 

Undiluted 70% isopropyl ALCOHOL. Use in a spray bottle on frequently touched surfaces, but avoid fabric. 

Spray on. Leave for 30 seconds. Wipe away with a paper towel.
