With the recent developments that have transpired over the past month and a half, it has become mind-boggling that a virus could wreak havoc on the world's economy. Recently, the world has been hit with a mysterious disease called the Coronavirus. Initially, it was thought to have been contained within one country. More recently, the disease has affected every corner of our world. These events have caused individuals to go into sheer panic. The immediate and unforeseen threats this virus has caused still has yet to be recognized. Many people are fearful for their health, the health of their loved ones and how the residual effects of this virus will influence their own personal economy. Everyday we turn on the news and hear more stories of individuals being affected by this disease even to the point of death.
A visit to the local stores are further proof that this virus is quickly escalating to an epidemic. The historical impact this disease has had on the world is almost unprecedented. Lawmakers and governments are scurrying to find a solution to, at the minimum, contain this deadly virus. They’ve implored the services of the most reputable doctors within the government to help find a solution for this epidemic.
With no relief in sight, consumers are beginning to take matters into their own hands. As evidenced by the empty shelves in our local stores, consumers are starting to formulate their own personal game plan to reduce their likelihood of catching this virus. They are quickly finding that Lysol disinfecting wipes are a handy go to during this stressful and cautious time.
More recently, on March 5th 2020, the EPA released a list of effective disinfectants that have been approved to kill the coronavirus. Lysol was among the list of items proven effective in combating this virus.
Why is it important to disinfect?
Aside from the recent developments that have occurred throughout the world, disinfecting your personal space is sanitary and helps to prevent the spread of germs. Lysol has been shown to kill 99.9% of germs and bacteria. Their television commercials even make the claim that the product is effective in killing viruses and germs. The company has developed several products that influence every part of our lives. From their disinfecting sprays to their laundry detergents, they’ve developed a product that is effective in stopping the spread of germs.
How to properly disinfect your personal space?
Simply wiping down the solid surface areas of your home was once considered an effective way to disinfect your personal space. Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, going a step further could only ensure you're protecting yourself and your family from the spread of this virus. Not only is it recommended you disinfect your personal space, it is highly recommended you disinfect everything you come in contact with. This requires doing an assessment how you live everyday. Taking a look at the items you use the most and how often you come in contact with those items on a daily basis is critical for proper sanitation. Once you've identified your target areas, using Lysol disinfecting wipes to properly clean these areas is critical. No longer is it acceptable to simply wipe the affected areas, it is now more beneficial to do a spring cleaning of the areas you’ve been in contact with.
Step by step cleaning instructions for Lysol disinfecting wipes.
Not once, in a million years, did we ever think we would need instructions on how to thoroughly clean a flat surface. After all, it's as simple as wiping down a solid surface area, right? Not so fast. With this virus being an epidemic, it is important to gain as much knowledge as you can to prevent the continued spread of this disease. Here are some instructions that may be beneficial in how to use disinfecting wipes.
Your home - As much as we hate to admit it, our homes can be a breeding ground for bacteria and germs. The way we've used disinfecting wipes in the past is vastly changing. The first place we should start in our homes are the obvious areas. The kitchens and bathrooms are the areas where bacteria and germs tend to linger the most. Using disinfecting wipes to clean these areas would start with a simple cleaning of the areas. To focus more attention to detail, it would be wise to clean additional areas such as the knobs on all of your interior doors, any knobs on our furniture pieces and follow by spraying Lysol in the air to prevent any airborne germs. For any of your exterior doors, it is important to clean them thoroughly on the inside and the outside. Focusing on the door handles would not be a bad idea. If any of your exterior doors have peepholes, it may not be a bad idea to clean them as well.
Your workspace - There is not a boss in their right mind who would not give you the time and space you need to clean your personal work space. As a matter of fact, due to the recent developments, your company may mandate that you have some type of regular cleaning routine in place. Starting with your personal area, it is important to remove all of the items that sit on top of your desk. Once you've done this, begin wiping the area down with disinfecting wipes including the top surface, the side areas and any drawers and drawer handles that you come in contact with throughout the day. After you finish this, start cleaning the items that you've removed from your desk as you replace them. Your phones are a breeding ground for germs and bacteria and it would be wise to give them a thorough cleaning. Start with the receiver and wipe it as thoroughly as possible, then move to the base phone. Leave no area untouched. If you work at a job where you do not sit at a desk and you share a space with multiple people, it is important to do periodic cleanings throughout the day. Keep a supply of disinfectant wipes at your disposal at all times.
Our cars and cell phones - We never thought to disinfect the interior of our cars. Now it's a never ending thought that plagues our minds constantly throughout the day. Using the Lysol disinfecting wipes, wipe the steering wheel, gear shift, handles, armrest and any other flat surface area within your car. After you finish wiping the solid surface areas of the interior, it would be wise to follow by spraying a light mist of Lysol spray on the fabric areas including the overhead area. Once you've completed the interior, move to the exterior of your car. Aside from needing a good old-fashioned washing, it is wise to follow by disinfecting the exterior handles of your doors, the trunk latch and the hood latch.
With your cell phones, it is best to remove any protective cases and thoroughly wipe down your cell phone. After you’ve wiped down your cell phone, thoroughly clean and disinfect the protective case.
Some of these measures may seem a bit extreme, but extreme times call for extreme measures. You'd rather over clean and protect yourself and your family then to ignore the ongoing epidemic and fall victim to a senseless virus.
