Touch points to disinfect in your home!
When you disinfect items in your home, it should always come after cleaning them and remember the disinfectant needs to stay on the surface 5-10 minutes to do its job (depending on what disinfectant you are using, read the instructions). I thought I would write out all the touch points I could think of at this time since it’s important to do this right now during this virus season we are experiencing. I hope this can help you! Just a side note, if you are disinfecting these items everyday, the disinfectant can build up a sticky residue over time. I wash the surface down with soap and water if that happens and start over with the disinfectant!
