These days, we are reminded of a lot of safety protocols and reminders on how we could protect ourselves from the virus. But as much as we should take care of ourselves, it is also important that we have a clean and safe home as well. Here I am now.. disinfecting one of the dirtiest thing in the world – a door knob.
Here comes the amazing discovery that I found from the news! It is said that common household cleaners can be effectively used as Covid19 disinfectant, and it was proven by a research made by Japan NITE! And Joy Antibac Dish Washing Liquid is an example that has the verified ingredient. It means that it can be used as an all-around disinfecting solution for the safety and protection of our household.
The lab studies conducted by Japan METI/NITE has proven that some cleaning actives, which is also known as surfactants, when used at the right levels can be effective against Covid19 and that there is a significant decrease in the virus count on items that are exposed to a surfactant to 0.05-0.2% for twenty seconds to 5 minutes.
How to do it? Mix a 1 teaspoon of dish washing liquid to a 500ml water. Wipe the surface or the item with a cloth that is soaked from the solution. Wipe firmly in one direction to prevent the spread of dirt and virus. Leave for 5 minutes and wipe off the soap solution with cloth soaked in water. Dry with another clean cloth.
Diba? Winner lang, I suddenly remembered the time na running low and stocks ng alcohol sa grocery eh, ayun lang pala pwede naman pala tayong gumamit ng Joy Antibac na, mostly readily available na sa ating kitchen. Nasa harap lang pala natin, di lang natin alam! BUT NOW WE KNOW!
Disclaimer: Dish washing detergents are not originally made for this, BUT according to Japan NITE, we can use them to disinfect.
