Does It Matter What Cleaning Products I Use for COVID-19?

The need for continuous cleaning and disinfecting in the workplace has never been more prominent than right now. Keeping your employees and guests safe needs to be your top priority, and that goes for the threats you cannot see as well.

We can all do our part by washing our hands and being mindful of those around us; however, germs, bacteria, and viruses will find their way around somehow. That’s why the cleaning products you use are essential to making sure any toxins posing a threat are removed and killed.

When news of the coronavirus broke out, many people started to wonder what products are suitable to kill this virus. Many products in the past have been approved for coronavirus, but it was quickly determined that it might not be the same for this strain of coronavirus.

Luckily, the EPA sent out a list of products approved for consumer use against COVID-19. They’ve been updating the list in accordance with their research, it currently has over 300 different products listed.

Going through the list, most Americans won’t recognize a majority of the products listed. To save you valuable time when researching this, we’ve gone through the list and compiled some of the more common disinfectants the EPA approved.
Lysol

Lysol products were found 17 times on the list, though they were under their company name Reckitt Benckiser. Lysol is one of the most common cleaning solutions in the United States and they come packed with a wide range of products for every use.
