Clinical Skills: Disinfecting frequently touched surfaces
Recently the CDC updated their guidelines on how to disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Most common EPA-registered disinfectants that you can get at the grocery store will work just fine, but if you need to, you can make your own using household bleach!
First, make sure you wear gloves and are in a well ventilated area whenever you work with bleach! Also don’t mix bleach with ammonia or any other cleaner.
Fill up a container with a quart of water or 950mL.
Then add 4 teaspoons of bleach, and mix.
