  • Remove clutter from surfaces to make cleaning and disinfecting easier.
  • Put on gloves and a mask if necessary.

Step 2: Clean Before Disinfecting

  • Start by cleaning surfaces with soap and water. This removes dirt, dust, and some germs.
  • Pay attention to frequently touched surfaces like doorknobs, light switches, countertops, and faucet handles.
  • Use a cloth or sponge and warm, soapy water. Rinse with clean water.

Step 3: Disinfect

  • After cleaning, use a disinfectant. You can either buy a commercial one or make your own:
    • For a bleach solution: Mix 1/3 cup of bleach with one gallon of water. Ensure good ventilation when using bleach.
    • For a hydrogen peroxide solution: Use a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution.
  • Apply the disinfectant to surfaces and let it sit for the recommended contact time (usually a few minutes).
  • Don’t forget to disinfect frequently touched items like TV remotes, phones, and computer keyboards.
  • Follow the instructions on the disinfectant product for the best results.

Step 4: Focus on High-Touch Areas

  • Concentrate on areas that are touched frequently by multiple people, like handrails, bathroom fixtures, and kitchen appliances.
  • Remember to disinfect light switches, cabinet handles, and the refrigerator door handle.

Step 5: Clean Soft Surfaces

  • Soft surfaces like upholstery, carpets, and rugs can also harbor germs.
  • Use appropriate cleaning products designed for soft surfaces.
  • Wash removable covers in a washing machine, if possible.

Step 6: Dispose of Cleaning Materials

  • Dispose of disposable wipes or cleaning cloths in a lined trash bin.
  • Wash reusable cleaning cloths or sponges in hot water and detergent after each use.

  • To keep your home clean and safe, establish a regular cleaning routine.
