As part of your daily routine, you should try to clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects (phones, door handles, light switches, countertops etc). This is especially important if someone in the home is sick. Please see the CDC’s guide here for more tips.

If you are concerned about running low on your packaged wipes, you can also make a disinfectant spray instead of using wipes: mix 5 tablespoons of bleach into 1 gallon of water or 4 teaspoons of bleach into one quart of water.
