CDC recommendations and general guidelines:

  • Wear disposable gloves to clean and disinfect. After each cleaning, gloves should be disposed of. If reusable gloves are used, please use them only for the purpose of cleaning and disinfecting the surface.
  • The CDC recommend alcohol solutions with at least 70% alcohol as disinfectants. Please check the most common registered household disinfectants listed on the website to wipe high-touch surfaces such as keyboards.
  • Avoid Bleach solutions over 10% as they may damage some plastics. The CDC recommendation is approximately 2% bleach.
