Bleach, hydrogen peroxide, and rubbing alcohol are among the ingredients that have been designated as necessary to keep surfaces clean and disinfected. While there are plenty of commercial cleaning supplies available on the market, it is also possible to make your own. may have cleaning products already on hand. If you choose to use bleach make sure that a cleaning solution includes 1/3 of a cup of bleach per gallon of water. Rubbing alcohol is another easy option. Simply pouring some on a paper towel and wiping down surfaces is a breeze.
