Relying on Lysol and Clorox to keep your home germ free? While these products perform when it comes to destroying coronavirus, are they doing the best job possible? Most products, Lysol and Clorox included, require you to leave the surface or object being disinfected untouched for anywhere from a few minutes to 10 minutes after application.
But wouldn’t faster-acting disinfectants be better?
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has listed all the products that meet their criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and how long each takes to kill the virus. Following are five products that can kill coronavirus in 30 seconds or less.
1. Lysol Neutra Air 2 in 1
This dual use product eliminates odors while killing coronavirus. Lysol Neutra Air 2 in 1 disinfects the air and soft surfaces, leaving your home coronavirus-free and smelling good. Ethanol in the spray is the secret ingredient that helps kill coronavirus in 30 seconds.
2. Formula 409
Formula 409 not only cuts through grease, but it also kills coronavirus quickly. You may already have this versatile cleaner at home, but you probably didn’t know that it kills coronavirus in just 30 seconds.
3. Mold Armor Rapid Clean Remediation
This product was designed to kill, clean, and prevent mold. It also has the ability to rapidly destroy coronavirus. The key to this product’s success in dealing with coronavirus is sodium hypochlorite and sodium carbonate. This product has the power to disinfect, sanitize, and banish fungus, mildew, mold, and coronavirus all at the same time.
4. DiscCide Ultra Disinfecting Towelettes
This name may be new to you but with quaternary ammonium and isopropanol, DisCide Ultra Disinfecting Towelettes are superior to Lysol wipes. The latter, containing only quaternary ammonium, takes 10 minutes to kill germs, 20 times longer than DisCide towelettes.
5. DisCide Ultra Disinfecting Spray
DisCide Ultra Disinfecting Spray has the same virus-fighting ingredients as DisCide’s towelettes, so this spray provides the same benefits. Having the spray in addition to the towelettes gives you more versatility when disinfecting various surfaces.
Limit your exposure to coronavirus by staying away from large groups of people and anyone who has recently traveled. Watch for symptoms such as low grade fever (Below 100 degrees), headache, dry cough, shortness of breath, and fatigue.
