The Household Cleaners That Will Really Kill The Coronavirus


As far as health scares go, the COVID-19 coronavirus is arguably the biggest to hit America in a century.

But the good news is that the coronavirus is a germ we are actually equipped to fight. In fact, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has said that the COVID-19 coronavirus is actually one of the easiest viruses to kill.

Why? Clorox scientist Richard Low told ABC,

“A coronavirus is what’s called an envelope virus and that means it has an outer envelope that’s composed of proteins and a fatty material called a lipid, and it’s that outer layer that makes it relatively simple to kill with most disinfectants, compared to other viruses that don’t have that envelope.”

The EPA says one of the best ways we can protect ourselves from the coronavirus is by cleaning and disinfecting countertops and surfaces regularly, with cleaners approved by the agency for use against COVID-19. This news has sent scads of people to buy supplies at their nearest store, including cleaning products, which they’re scooping up in hopes of keeping the virus at bay.

So the question is, which household cleaners really do work against the COVID-19 coronavirus?

Well, fortunately enough, the EPA-approved list includes plenty of product and brand names that we already know, such as Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, Disinfecting Spray and Multi-Surface Cleaner and Bleach; Lysol’s Clean and Fresh Multi-Surface Cleaner, its Disinfectant Max Cover Mist, and its Heavy-Duty Cleaner Disinfectant Concentrate; Purell Professional Surface Disinfectant Wipes; and Peroxide Multi Surface Cleaner and Disinfectant.

While the EPA admits the products haven’t actually been tested against COVID-19, they are expected to be effective against the coronavirus because the approved household cleaners have worked against organisms that are more difficult to kill, and they have worked against other coronaviruses that are similar to the one we are facing down today.

And making sure your home is clean and disinfected is one effective way of keeping your home free of not just the coronavirus, but other germs too.

Sarah Fozzard, Head of Home Hygiene for pharmaceutical company Thornton and Ross, told Patient,

“With research suggesting that human coronaviruses can remain infectious on surfaces for a matter of days, establishing a hygiene routine with some simple, everyday preventative steps can help avoid the spread of respiratory viruses. Wiping down high traffic areas will reduce the spread of viruses in areas which come into contact with various people throughout the day.” Keep watching the video to see the household cleaners that will really kill the coronavirus.
