What should be disinfected?

posted on Jun 3, 2021

What to Disinfect

  • Frequently touched surfaces
  • Any surfaces that are touched with unwashed hands after returning from public places. (Better yet, use hand sanitizer on your hands before you come in the house and touch anything!).

Many disinfectants are not safe for use on food contact surfaces. Look for the words “food-contact sanitizer” on the product label which indicates it is safe for food contact surfaces.
