The federal Environmental Protection Agency has published a list of the disinfectant products that are approved for use against the new coronavirus.
The EPA says these products, used for surface cleaning, are the best bet and safe for household use. The EPA says that, “Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses, meaning they are one of the easiest types of viruses to kill with the appropriate disinfectant product.”
Clorox bleach cleaners from good old white-bottled bleach to its bathroom, kitchen and other multi-surface disinfectants and wipes, are on the list. So too are some Lysol and Purell products.
That said, the vast majority of items on the EPA-approved list to fight the virus are obscure brand names and/or commercial products, likely used in health care settings.
The EPA says “there may be additional disinfectants that meet the criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2. EPA will update this list with additional products as needed.”
