Pandemic Preparedness: Alternatives to common cleaning supplies

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has compiled a list of cleaning products that are known to be effective against COVID-19. If you are considering purchasing unfamiliar brands of disinfectants or cleaners, be sure to check the EPA’s “N” list of cleaners before purchasing to ensure that you are spending your money on a product that is known to work against COVID-19. 

1. Visit this link: https://cfpub.epa.gov/giwiz/disinfectants/index.cfm and click the “Launch” button.

2. Click on “Keyword Search.” 

3. Type any product name or company title in the search bar.
For example, if you search “clorox” under product name, all of the clorox products that are effective against COVID-19 will appear in the table below the search area.

When handling cleaning supplies, it is always important to check the manufacturer’s label to learn how to correctly and safely use a product. Remember not to mix cleaning or disinfecting products, as this can be very dangerous.
