Pine-Sol Cleaner Added To List Of Cleaners That Kill COVID
While it's been hard to get your hands on Lysol and other products that have been approved to kill the coronavirus on hard surfaces, the EPA has approved a cleaner that you may already have in your cabinet.
According to CNN, Pine-Sol's Original Cleaner has been approved by the EPA as a product that can kill the coronavirus on surfaces. Now before you start spraying Pine-Sol on everything, there is an added step that you are asked to take.
To disinfect against coronavirus, the company said customers should apply full-strength Pine-Sol with a clean sponge or cloth on a surface, wait 10 minutes, then rinse. For heavily soiled surfaces, the company said precleaning to remove excess dirt first is required. - via CNN
The Clorox Company, the maker of Pine-Sol and the world's largest manufacturer of disinfectant materials, has 36 other products on the EPA's list of disinfectants for use against Covid-19, including Clorox bleach, disinfecting bathroom cleaner, and disinfecting wipes. But due to overwhelming demand, the company says that wipes and other products would continue to experience a shortage into next year.
