Disinfecting your furniture due to COVID-19

Blog provided by Wicker Paradise

Are you worried about your furniture storing up germs and harmful microorganisms? After the effects of COVID-19, keeping hands and surfaces clean is at the forefront of everyone’s mind. No matter what material your furniture is made of, homemade or store-bought disinfectants can be one of the most effective ways to protect you and your family from exposure to COVID-19 and other sickness-causing germs.

If you have the opportunity to go to the store, you might find disinfectant wipes or sprays that are effective at killing almost all the germs on a surface. If you want to make sure a specific disinfectant product can protect you against COVID-19, you can check the EPA’s list of products that are effective against the virus. However, it may be difficult to find disinfectants at the store, as those products are predictably in demand during this time. If you can’t buy any disinfectant wipes or sprays, you might be able to create a disinfectant solution from the products you already have at home.

Familiar substances such as ammonia and bleach can be added to water to create homemade disinfectant solutions that work just as well. Two tablespoons of ammonia in one gallon of water are usually enough to get the job done. When it comes to making a bleach solution, it’s ideal for your solution to be at least 50% water. It’s also important to note that ammonia and bleach work great by themselves, but should never be mixed together, as combining ammonia and bleach is toxic.
