That's great and all but, whats surfaces are most likely to carry the COVID-19 virus for longer?
Science shows that non-porous materials such as plastics and metals can carry the virus from 3 hours to (in some cases) days! So be sure to wipe down regularly and thoroughly.
What is the best household products to be used on this type of virus?
1) Bleach, as we all know, can be extremely effective but we must make sure to use it wisely and in small amounts, as it can be damaging to the skin if not properly soaked up and is used in large quantities.
2) Good old fashioned soap and water. This can be easily mixed into a spray bottle that can then be evenly dispersed onto any surface within your car for convenience and ease.
3) Isopropyl alcohol, this is an extremely strong form of alcohol that can reach strength levels of up to 70%. This is extremely effective in removing the virus but must be used with great caution.
4) Hydrogen Peroxide. It has been used to kill the coronavirus in homes across the united states and could be effective in cleaning your car out of all those viruses.
