  • Yes, clorox, dettol, Lysol and other household cleaning agents are good in destroying the COVID - 19 germs.

    I saw the science on it and it is like a grease molecule so regular soap breaks up the skin of the virus and that kills it. (as soap takes off grease off of hands and dishes so they is squeaky clean) THE TEST YOU CAN DO: So pour a bit of cooking oil, butter, or margarine  on a plate and then try your cleaning product on it.  If the plate is not squeaky clean after you  using the cleaning product, it does not attack grease.  So same affect on virus.  Your cleaning product is not doing what it needs to do.

    There are many products.  Lysol and others.   Depends on how you use them.   You are suppose to spray a surface and let it air dry.   Do NOT wipe it,   Do not dry it off.  It needs to sit on the surface and air dry.

    Chlorine Bleach, yes. Soap and water, yes. 

    Anything else--NO.

    Yes, though not this particular one at this point.

    Yes. I've seen alcohol, bleach and hydrogen peroxide mentioned as effective disinfectants by doctors. And washing with soap will do it for your hands as long as you're very thorough.

    Yes is the short answer. Soap is best on skin, but any detergent such as used in household cleaners will wreck the coating of the virus and destroy it. Important to realise that a virus is not the same as a bacterium.

      Washing and disinfecting are two different things.

    The purpose is to kill the bad germs, not "kill the coronavirus".
