Reading Time: 2 minutes

Going out? after hearing this the first thing that comes in our mind is whether we have our masks, gloves, and sanitizers stocked. This has become a new normal for us. We’re always looking for the best disinfectant spray, wipes sanitizers, and also the best air purifiers. But the concern is, what to do if there is none available in the market?. Let it be without disinfecting?. We can’t afford that.

These are the days when even the clean freaks are getting a run for their money. In order to keep the coronavirus at bay, it’s is really important to keep your kitchen, bathrooms, commonly used items disinfected. Disinfecting and cleaner ingredients should not be the things we spend a bunch of money on. Neither should you shift to all the ‘self-assumed’ disinfectants because no one knows if they’re actually killing the bacteria.

According to the health professionals, some of the ingredients that can kill bacteria can easily be found and we can make our own disinfectant sprays, wipes and also, sanitizer. With some easily available ingredients, make your own disinfectants that are safe for all types of surfaces.

Hydrogen peroxide is effective against all microorganisms, such as bacteria, yeasts, fungi, viruses, and spores. It takes only 6-8 minutes to kill them all.

Rubbing alcohol has great disinfecting qualities when left on surfaces for at least 30 seconds. There needs to be at least 70% of rubbing alcohol present to kill coronaviruses.
