What Cleaning Supplies Will Help Combat COVID-19? | UC San Diego Health


With hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes disappearing from the shelves, knowing what soaps and cleaners work best against novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is important for helping keep your household hygienic during the pandemic.

On March 24, 2020, Alison Caldwell, PhD, Bigelow Science Communication Fellow, explained what household scrubs and supplies best combat the virus.

You should check your cleaning products against the full list of cleaners approved by the EPA to combat COVID-19 on their website (). Always follow package instructions for how to best use the solution for cleaning, and never mix cleaning solutions to avoid accidentally creating toxic combinations. Be aware that many disinfectants can be harsh on the skin, lungs and eyes, and always use solutions at the appropriate dilution and wear appropriate protective equipment, such as gloves or eyewear, while you’re cleaning.

***The patches were infused with a citrusy blend of essential oils: lemon, orange, mandarin, pink grapefruit, lemongrass, lime and peppermint.
