How can I clean and disinfect my surroundings and laundry?
  • Wear gloves when possible when cleaning. Make sure to clean your hands immediately after removing gloves. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets and sinks.
  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them with detergent or soap and water before disinfecting. You can use most household disinfectants to disinfect, CDC has a detailed list of cleaners on their website.
  • Lysol or Clorox cleaners are preferred. Items such as baby wipes will not kill the virus.
  • A bleach solution of 1/3 cup bleach per gallon of water or 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water may also be used.
  • For clothing, use the warmest water and launder as labeled.
  • For soft (porous) surfaces such as carpeted floor, rugs, and drapes, remove visible contamination if present and clean with appropriate cleaners indicated for use on these surfaces.
