The EPA has identified two Lysol products that effectively kill COVID-19 on hard non-porous surfaces.
Lysol Disinfectant Spray and Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist meet the criteria to kill the SARS-CoV-2 virus within two minutes of contact.
“In the face of the pandemic, Lysol continues to work with a wide range of scientific and health experts to educate the public on the importance of hygiene,” a Lysol representative said in a statement.
The confirmation of the effectiveness of the approved Lysol products comes a month after a CDC survey revealed that people were cleaning their homes more but didn’t know how to clean them properly. Those who did use high-risk cleaners to ward off viruses within their homes said they suffered health-related problems due to the cleaners.
The CDC recommends that people always read the instructions on cleaning products. When cleaning, wear gloves or other protective gear. And don’t mix cleaning chemicals.
