What are you disinfecting with?

Have you stepped up disinfecting your home in light of the virus? Some people I know are really going all-out, disinfecting every few hours, and doing the same with their cars. They are going over seats and door handles very diligently.

Is that overkill in your opinion or are you right there with them? I definitely don't judge people for cleaning more intensively, if anything it's a good idea.

If you're cleaning a lot, what are you using? Just plain old Lysol or something else?

I have heard that hydrogen peroxide is good to clean with. I have used it before because I hate the smell of bleach. It gives me a headache. I actually read that this is what hospitals use. Not sure if all of them do or not, but it is much safer than bleach.

I am not going overboard. At work I do. But at home, I am cleaning the same as I always did.

I've been using Lysol and also some antimicrobial wipes. Don't know if it's going to keep me from getting it, but it's a lot more than I usually do haha.

I keep my place clean normally so I am not fussed. I do in fact use hydrogen peroxide in the kitchen as well as rubbing alcohol to clean off surfaces. I do a mix of 40/40/20 with peroxide, alcohol, and water and keep it in a sprayer. Cheap and effective.

This is a good idea. Does it have a strong rubbing alcohol spray? I have never thought about using that, but you are right, it is very cheap. Each bottle is like $1 each!

I have heard of people using what Jad3Drag0n mentioned but with essential oils so they smell nice. Something I like to do, because I hate the smell of cleaners, is I will gather stuff from outside like flowers, twigs, and I will add orange peels to it. Then put some water in a pot with everything and let it simmer on my stove. Really makes the house smell lovely. In the fall, I do it with cinnamon and nutmeg.

Just 70% which I think is the standard you will find in the store. Nothing fancy but it gets the job done and way cheaper than using Lysol and other cleaning products.
