Some germs can survive for days on household surfaces like kitchen counter tops, sinks, and phone receivers. When you disinfect, you are reducing (killing) germs on these surfaces.
- Read product labels to ensure that you use the product correctly to achieve disinfection.
- For kitchen disinfection, be sure to rinse any surfaces or kitchen tools that will come in contact with food after you are done.
- Disinfect household surfaces frequently, especially after food preparation and when someone in your home is sick.
