What to use to disinfect
When cleaning or disinfecting use waterproof gloves, such as nitrile or dishwashing gloves to protect you from the cleaning chemicals and virus.
If a surface is dirty, first clean it with soap or detergent and water. Then use a disinfectant product containing alcohol (of around 70 per cent) or bleach solution. Vinegar and other natural products are not recommended.
How to disinfect
It’s important not to wipe cleaning solutions off as soon as you’ve applied it to a surface. Many disinfectant products, such as wipes and sprays, need to stay wet on a surface for several minutes in order to be effective.
Always read the directions to make sure you’re using the products as recommended. Use chemicals in a well-ventilated area and never mix cleaning chemicals with one another. This may create hazardous gases.
Avoid damaging sensitive items such as mobile phones and other electronic devices. Consider using wipeable covers for electronics.
