There are THOUSANDS of household cleaning products that claim they kill 99.9% of germs. What they don’t tell you is that it’s 99.9% of a few types of germs, not ALL germs! I have tried for years to find the best cleaning products out there that really do what they say. I found an article that claims they have busted the housing cleaning myths. What is your take on it?
According to Yahoo, they have BUSTED the myths on household cleaners. One of the myths I always believed was about the use of bleach. I always thought you could use it for almost everything. But according to Yahoo, it does a lot more harm than I thought.
“It can damage the sealant or cause etching of the surface.” If you aren’t cleaning stone and you do need a disinfectant, certain bleaches still may not be the right choice.”
“Full-strength vinegar kills some bacteria and mold, but it won’t kill flu viruses,” says Reynolds. When someone in the house is sick, protect the rest of the family with an EPA-registered disinfectant, which is tested for germ-killing effectiveness. Viruses can survive on surfaces for as long as eight hours, so wipe down doorknobs, faucet handles and other hands-on spots with this disinfectant.
