Creating a Sanitizing Solution for Household Cleaning

 According to the CDC:

"For disinfection, diluted household bleach solutions, alcohol solutions with at least 70% alc hol, and most common EPA-registered household disinfectants should be effective. Diluted household bleach solutions can be used if appropriate for the surface. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.

Prepare a bleach solution by mixing:
5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water.

Approved Household Cleaners

Since Covid-19 can survive on surfaces long after they are used, it is important to fully wipe down all surfaces after you use them with an approved cleaner. The virus can found on cardboard for up to 24 hours after use, and on steel and plastic up to 3 days after use. Click Here to view a list of approved cleaners from the EPA

"Clarification: We are asking the community to practice social and physical distancing. The advice to stay at home does not mean to lock yourself inside your house. You can still go outside for walks etc. However, DO NOT go out to public places/ stores/ gatherings unless you absolutely NEED to go for food or supplies."
