EPA Approves Additional Cleaning Product That Will Kill Coronavirus on Surfaces

By on September 21, 2020 0 45Views

As disinfectant wipes and bottles of hand sanitizers continue to fly off store shelves amid the coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. government issued a stamp of approval for an additional household cleaning product.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gave Pine-Sol Original Multi-Surface Cleaner the approval “for kill claims against SARS-Cov-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, on hard non-porous surfaces,” according to a press release.

If you use Pine-Sol to prevent the spread of COVID-19, apply the Pine-Sol multi-surface cleaner with a clean sponge or cloth on hard, nonporous surfaces. Once the surface is wet, let it stand for 10 minutes and then rinse.

The EPA released a list back in March of household products that kill the coronavirus. They include Clorox, Lysol and Purell.
