Another household cleaner has officially been deemed potent enough to combat the novel coronavirus on frequently used surfaces.
According to a news release issued by The Clorox Co., testing from a third-party laboratory revealed the disinfectant is proven effective against the virus with a “10-minute contact time on hard non-porous surfaces.”
The company said the product should be applied with a clean sponge or cloth and should remain wet on the surface for at least 10 minutes before rinsing, Fox Business reported.
With this new development, The Clorox Co. hopes the new “Pine-Sol kill claim will increase access to disinfectants that can help prevent the spread of COVID-19,” Chris Hyder, vice president and general manager of the cleaning division at Clorox, said in the news release.
